Jetson Orin Nano Failed to Flash on SDK

I tried so many time to flash the orin nano but it keeps failing. I am using a Ubuntu 22.04 system and trying to flash jetpack 6. The error log reads:

Hi Dave, here is the full log. Thanks.

Does replacing the SD card or flash cable with another one helps?

Or you can do this under /home/donny/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_6.0_DP_Linux_DP_JETSON_ORIN_NANO_TARGETS/Linux_for_Tegra:

sudo ./flash.sh jetson-orin-nano-devkit internal

I changed a cable and it works now

@ylab2021 Do you mind sharing where you purchased your Orin Nano board?

I bought mine from Amazon, but encountered issues during the flashing process. @DaveYYY has been assisting me in a separate thread and pointed out a bug in version 36.2. I’m curious as to how you managed to successfully flash your board. Would you be willing to share your flashing procedure? Thanks!
