We are a robotics company and have three Jetson Orin Nano. After using each one for a few days, all of them have experienced the same problem.
During boot, it shows “warning test key in use” followed by “LT4Launcher attempting recovery boot”. It tries a few times until going blank.
We are putting them through normal use, SLAM, navigation, manipulation with the board properly ventilated. There is nothing extraordinary, except that we are using the CAN Bus pins of the board. We had to solder our own pins to it. That’s the only “alteration” to it from off-the-shelf.
We found many topics here with similar issue. However, most if not all of these topics were simply closed automatically with no satisfactory resolution. Which really put us off
We are still going through trade studies, testing and validation phases and unless we find what is wrong with this product, this is not something we could spec in our own product.
We flashed one of the Jetsons with a new Samsung 128GB Evo Select SD Card. It is working as expected. Of course this is not the solution we wanted, since we had to reconfigure the Jetson again with all of our software, and this would be a no-go in production.
Was this preventable? Would the use of an SSD make it a lot more robust for intensive applications (robotics, vision, mapping, inference)?
