Jetpack 3.2 - Unable to flash Jetson TX2

Hello everyone,

i am using a computer with an new and fresh installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. My computer is complete empty and new, the disk has 500 GB of data.
I downloaded the Jetpack 3.2 and i tried installing it with my Host PC almost the whole day.
I can download and install everything correctly until it comes to the flashing of the TX2. I tried different USB ports on my host PC, i checked the USB connection everytime and i can see the NVIDIA Corp. when i enter the “lsusb” command.

Everytime i try to flash the Jetson i get the following error:

Error: Return value 3 Command tegrarcm_v2 --download bct_bootrom br_bct_BR.bct --download bct_mb1 mb1_bct_MB1_sigheader.bct.encrypt

Failed flashing t186ref.

Right now, i have no idea where the issue is coming from. I tried a lot of things, nothing helped so far. In adittion, i tried it with another computer -> Same problem. Please find attached the log file.Can you recommend something?

It does look like it should work. Is this a dev carrier board kit, or some other carrier board? Does the recovery mode device show up specifically with “lsusb -d 0955:7c18”? HUBs have never been an issue for me, but if you are using a HUB, perhaps try also without a HUB.
