Jetson Xavier-NX EMMC 16GB flashing issue

Hi,

I’m using Jetson NANO carrier board for Jetson XAVIER-NX. Jetson Xavier-NX module comes with EMMC option only (without SDcard slot). We are not able to flash through the SDK-Manager.

We have done the following steps:

  1. Place a jumper across the Force Recovery Mode pins (9 and 10) on the button header
    [J14].
  2. Connect your host computer to the developer kit’s USB Micro-B connector.
  3. Connect the power supply to the power jack [J16]. The developer kit automatically
    powers on in Force Recovery Mode.
  4. Remove the jumper from the Force Recovery Mode pins

Kindly help on this.

Below are the terminal output:

Hi,

Do you mean your NX module does not have a sdcard slot but only emmc?

yes.It has only emmc

Hi,

There are two problems here

  1. If you are using emmc based NX module, then you have to choose the non-devkit option in sdkmanager.

  2. I am not very sure if production NX module is able to run on Nano devkit. Please try (1) first.
