we have a problem trying to flash the JP4.6.2 on a Jetson TX2 NX installed on a custom carrier board.
We tried using the SDK Manager getting the flash error:
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xa4 in position 15: invalid start byte --- Error: Reading board information failed.
After several attempts by changing the SDK Manager configuration parameters which all led to the same result, I tried to open a console and use the
nvautoflash.sh script manually.
Both the commands
sudo ./nvautoflash.sh --print_boardid
led to the same error message.
To exclude any eventual HW issues we tested the operations described above on different boards previously working.
Is this an installer bug?
We are using the latest SDK Manager v22.214.171.12463
UPDATE 1: We tried flashing the JP4.6.1, same error.
UPDATE 2: The same problem is present in the previous SDK Manager v126.96.36.19907
UPDATE 3: We can flash the board manually by using the command
sudo ./flash.sh jetson-xavier-nx-devkit-tx2-nx mmcblk0p1
so there is something wrong in the
nvautoflash.sh script used with the TX2 NX module
