Jetson Orin nano, booting issue & sd card corruption problem

I have recently purchased Jetson Orin Nano after a couple of safe shutdowns and reboots, it doesn’t turn on. I have reflashed it 5 times, but the problem still arises.

I checked the dmesg log when the Orin Nano was working after a couple of reboots the log is similar to the one mentioned in this discussion.

I am unable to send the logs of my Jetson orin nano as I have reflashed it.


How did you re-flash it?
What log do you get during boot from serial console?

I have formatted the SD card every time I re-flashed. I have followed this

here is the serial log.

serial_consol_log.txt (84.9 KB)

no matter how many times I re-flash, use different sd cards. after a few safe shutdowns or reboots, it doesn’t boot.

Please re-flash with SDK Manager.
Re-flashing only the SD card sometimes does not fix anything.


Orin nano sdcard corruption is a known issue. Please try to use nvme or usb drive to boot first.

We will try to fix this issue.

I did notice it is trying to boot to eMMC in the log:

mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt
mount: /mnt: special device /dev/mmcblk0p1 does not exist.
Failed to mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 on the /mnt
Failed to run "mount_ota_work_partition /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt"
OTA work directory is not found on internal and external storage devices

Is this an eMMC model? If so, then flashing to get SD card boot is quite different in procedure compared to a purely SD card model. I don’t know why boot is looking for eMMC if the module does not have eMMC.
