JetPack 3 flashing

Dear All,
I am trying to run JetPack 3 on my Linux Box to flash my TK1 board. After I chmod the file and then run it, the box displays only install on 14.04 or 16.04. I am running Ubuntu 16.10. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

hello Jason_Grayson,

please refer to the JetPack page, the JetPack installer requires Ubuntu 14.04 on your host PC

Note that if you just want to flash you can do this from command line without JetPack. It requires the driver package plus sample rootfs. If you choose to do this and resolve your host requirements for using JetPack at a later date then you can still run JetPack for extra package installs. It is also possible to extract the optional package additions for putting on the Jetson (not necessarily on the host) from JetPack.

Driver package plus sample rootfs can be downloaded here:

To manually flash without JetPack unpack the driver package. This produces directory Linux_for_Tegra. Within this is subdirectory rootfs. Unpack sample rootfs here using sudo:

cd rootfs
sudo tar xjf Tegra_Linux_Sample-Root-Filesystem_R27.1.0_aarch64.tbz2
cd ..
sudo ./
# Make sure Jetson is in recovery mode with micro-B USB cable...
sudo ./ -S 14580MiB jetson-tk1 mmcblk0p1

For extracting packages from JetPack (e.g., CUDA) see (you’d be interested in the armhf packages):
