Issue with extracting the jedroid_v1.31.tar.bz2 file -> Error: bzip2: (stdin) is not a bzip2 file

Hi to all.
I am having problems at the cmd tar jxvf jedroid_v1.31.tar.bz2 -C ~/jedroid_workspace The error is: ubuntu@tegra-ubuntu:~/Downloads tar jxvf jedroid_v1.31.tar.bz2 -C ~/jedroid_workspace
bzip2: (stdin) is not a bzip2 file.
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Any tip, thanks.

What does “file” say?

file jedroid_v1.31.tar.bz2


Thanks your comment, here the output:

ubuntu@tegra-ubuntu:~/Downloads$ file jedroid_v1.31.tar.bz2
jedroid_v1.31.tar.bz2: HTML document, ASCII text, with very long lines


There you go…the problem is that whatever method you used to download the file downloaded the web page for downloads rather than the actual file. Some web pages are designed to make sure you click the “ok” button on some EULA before download begins (or else only works if logged in), so direct download with something like “wget” doesn’t work.

Ok … make sense , I had used wget, here the cmd:
$ wget -O jedroid_v1.31.tar.bz2

Thanks a lot, I am going to try to find out how can I download from google drive …

Any tip is welcome …


When I go there it requires a google login. After doing that, it says the URL doesn’t work. So the URL itself has an issue, plus you must log in to google to get there just to know.

Based on the “Android on Jetson” thread, the link hasn’t been working for a while and the original developer isn’t responding to any questions:
