Jetson TX1 JetPack not installing

Hello All,

I recently received a new TX1 kit as a replacement for my original kit due to the wifi problem with the hardware. When trying to install the latest Jetpack from the command line all that happens is the file unzips and I get an _installer folder created. If I double click on the run file in the GUI then I get a download window that just freezes. Any ideas. I had no problems with the original unit. My command line code is below.

ubuntu@tegra-ubuntu:~/Downloads$ ls
ubuntu@tegra-ubuntu:~/Downloads$ ./
Creating directory _installer
Verifying archive integrity… All good.
Uncompressing JetPack 100%

The download should not be run from the Jetson…run it from the desktop linux x86 host to install to the Jetson.


Thank you. Feeling rather stupid at the moment.


No worries — due to the somewhat common misconception, we’ve added an error message to the next version of Jetpack when it’s tried to be run from the Jetson itself. Since restarting and entering recovery mode is required to flash, Jetpack is run from an x86_64 Ubuntu 14.04 Linux machine.
