After an exhausting number of iterations changing USB minicables etc, version of the Host OS 14.04 and 16.04
(non-VM) I gave up trying to flash the jetson from the host and decided to backup the jetson SSD on an SD card.
I made a complete copy of the jetson-tx2 internal ssd on an 64GB SD card and successfully booted multiple times from it.
I tried to erase and reformat the internal SSD but during the process there was a power outage that left the drive in an unrecoverabele state. Here is the boot log from the serial device.

Right now the jetson is bricked. I tried reflashing it through the miniusb with multiple cables and it fails. It could be booted from the backup sd card except the boot record on the internal ssd has been erased. Is there a way to restore or rebuild the internal ssd or force the jetson to boot from the SD card? perhaps using some variation of flash.sh ? Help would be greatly appreciated.
