Jetson xavier nx not booting jetpack v5

I have download Jetpack v5 (jetson-nx-jp50dp-sd-card-image.zip) and I do all things as this instuctions - Getting Started With Jetson Xavier NX Developer Kit | NVIDIA Developer

After that I put SD card to jetson xavier nx and run. It is work fine. After that there is softwre update and I update those packages. Then restart it but not restated and light is on.

Again I install OS to SD cad but now the downloaded OS also not working. (Above mentioned v5).

How to solve this issue?

Jetson heat sink is heating when power on but nothing is happening. also not showing anything in Display.

Please flash the board with sdkmanager. Sdcard image didn’t work well in jp5.0.

Can we use sdkmanager with windows 10? I have windows computer

Sorry that only ubuntu 18.04/20.04 on x86/x64 host would work.

then how can I do it? I do not have ubuntu PC

Maybe try to install dual boot on your Windows host. I would suggest always prepare a ubuntu host there if you want to use Jetson… since every development tools are based on ubuntu.

The first time it works the second time it does not work. I think something happened when updating os in first time.

The bootloader software on your board is still the old one. You then plugged the jp5 sdcard image. It used the old bootloader to boot up and tried to update the bootloader. It failed, so no longer can boot.

Even the first boot is not a normal function one because we don’t support to use old jp4 bootloader to boot jp5 image.

Why bootloader does not install the sd card when os image mount to the SD card? If it install in it, why does not load it?

The partition layout has lots of difference between rel-32 (jetpack4) and rel-35(jetpack5) and that is why sdcard image can handle.

Thus, we suggest to directly upgrade the system using sdkmanager instead of sdcard image. Sorry for inconvenience.

I got Ubuntu and Xavier NX connect using micro USB port and SD card insert to Xavier. But sdkmanager ask HW image folder and can not select SD card inside the Xavier. Why is that? Xavier already recognized in sdkmanager .

What should I choose in This Tartget HW image folder? SD cad inside Xavier not showings. (Below image get as example)

Can you help me in live chat? Please, I am doing this since 3 days.

Sdkm will install the BSP folder to your “host” first and then use USB port to flash it to NX.

So, of course it will not have folder in your sd. Also, when flash starts, the sdcard will be formatted.

Error for Flash Jetson OS and others also same error

Why this happend?

I got the following error for Jetson OS Image

Others give following error

This is error log

Are you sure you give the root permission to sdkmanager to let it download the package? Also, is that directory where you gave to sdkmanager, are you sure that is a ext4 partition?

Please be aware that we are talking about the root on your x86_64 host, not the Jetson. There is no jetson issue getting involved yet.

This is what I did for this,

Step 1: I follow this - NVIDIA SDK Manager | NVIDIA Developer. I downloaded .deb file and run sudo apt install ./sdkmanager_[version]-[build#]_amd64.deb

Step 2: Then I download all files to the Download folder using Download now. Install later using sdkmanager.

Step 3:
Try 2: Insert SD card to slot and try to install OS. Select SD card for Target HW image folder. SD card format is exFAT. (64GB SD Card). It says error. Jetson not connect to PC.

Try 3: Insert SD card to slot and try to install OS. Select SD card for Target HW image folder. SD card format is ext4. (64GB SD Card). It says error to select SD card. Permission denied. Jetson not connect to PC.

Try 4: Insert SD card to Jetson and connect Jetson using micro USB. Use usb pendrive use for Target HW image folder. Pendrive format is exFAT. It says above log file error.

Try 5: Jetson connect to pc using micro USB and not use SD card. That SD card connect to directly to PC.It also get above error.


NOTES:

  • When use SD card format as ext4, can not select it. it says permission denided.

  • can not run sdkmanager as sudo sdkmanager

  • I am using a virtual ubuntu machine using VMWave. Ubuntu 20.

  • My virtual machine not have much space so can not select a folder in somewhere in ubuntu.

Please include the proper steps for me. Today is my 3rd day for trying this.

Try 1: This is used the normal process to insert OS to SD using windows. Download img file and insert it.

Sorry to tell the virtual Ubuntu machine may cause some unknown problem, and it’s not suggested by us.
Please have a host PC with native Ubuntu 20.04 with enough space to run the SDK manager.

Or you can refer to below threads if it can help you to resolve the flash problem on your VMWare:
Flashing Jetson Nano 2GB with VM - Jetson & Embedded Systems / Jetson Nano - NVIDIA Developer Forums

I got the same issue for host matchine. Please tell me answers for the following questions.

  • What is target HW image folder?

  • Which folder do i need to select?

  • If it is an external folder, which format should I use? (FAT,EXFAT etc)

  • Do I need to connect Jetson using micro USB with SD card or connect SD card separately to PC?

  • which format do I need to use for SD card?
