I have been having issues with the Jetson TK1 for a while now. The first problem occurred when the Jetson unexpectedly powered down during the middle of an update. When the Jetson was powered back on, I would receive a black screen after the NVIDIA Logo. I have seen a few forum posts about this issue. I followed what I saw and ended up making it worse. Afterwards, I could physically log on the desktop, except it was all blue. I knew I was on the desktop because when I right-clicked, I got the normal options to add a folder and all that.
Recently I followed the documentation on the NVIDIA Jetson, https://developer.nvidia.com/linux-tegra-r214, up to flashing the bootloader. I ran the command “$ sudo ./flash.sh mmcblk0p1.”
Afterwards when I powered the Jetson, I no longer got a blue screen, instead I got text on black screen ending in:
10.1032021] init: plymouth-upstart-bridge main process (130) terminated with status 1
10.1155831] init: plymouth-upstart-bridge main process ended, respawning
Since then, I have followed this guide on youtube to install JetPack2.0 in a hail mary attempt that this would solve all my problems. I get through to the Post Installation process but always get stuck at this part:
sending file: u.boot.bin
- 440016/440016 bytes sent
u.boot.bin sent successfully
- 2186280960/2372760412 bytes sent
I’ve tried several times, leaving it to sit for 7 hours once and it did not move past that point.
Does anyone know what I should do next? Is the Jetson done for and should I get a new one? Does this qualify me for a refund? If you could help me get close to the answer to any of these questions I’ll be incredibly thankful. Sorry but I do not have actual files of the terminal output for these errors, I just have pictures so if you need to see them I could e-mail them to you. Thanks.
