Jetpack 4.3 Flash errors

Hello,
I hope this is the right place to post. I’m trying to flash my AGX Xavier with Jetson 4.3, however, I’m getting a couple of errors during the installation process. I’m using Ubuntu 18.04. Some guidance and wisdom would be much appreciated :D

Hi hou71,

Are you connect Ethernet cable on your host Ubuntu machine?
Please make sure network is working, the SDK Manager can start download files/packages from server.

Hi Carolyuu,

Yes the ethernet is connected and works. However, the SDKmanager has not prompted me to boot up the AGX.
After doing some more digging through the log file, it looks the “apply_binaries.sh” file is not found. I tried searching manually and couldn’t find the script either. When does that script get added to the folder. If i can find it, I could insert it in manually possibly.

Hi hou71,

Suggest you can remove below two folder and download again:
sudo rm -R /home/tony/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_4.3_Linux_JETSON_AGX_XAVIER sduo rm -R ~/.nvsdkm

If you want to try manually, the"apply_binaries.sh" script is in the L4T Driver Package.
If you still fail after remove two folder, please also try flash by manually:

  1. Root File system
  2. Driver Package
  3. Follow Quick Start Guide steps to flash by manually.

Hi carolyuu,

So the installation worked yesterday and prompted me to connect the AGX and run in force recovery mode. I selected the manual setup, but I couldn’t install the SDK components. Now the AGX not longer boots up. It displays the Nvidia logo and proceeds to go dark. I suspect the installation process had some errors because the agx should be displaying the bootloader. I am trying this again with the instructions you provided in the last post. As for the AGX going blank, what is the potential solution for that?

This is the error I got from flashing.

Hi hou71,

Please ignore this errors from sdkmanager terminal, it’s known issue.
We will fix this error in next release build. The image still can be flash success without problem.
Sorry for confused you.

After you flash image success, please connect HDMI to you Xavier board and doing first boot up init setup process (setting username, password, timezone…), wait the device boot to Desktop, you can start install sdk components.
