JetsonAGX setup error

We are currently setting up the Jetson AGX.
I use sdkmanager (Jetpack 4.4) to install, but I get an error.
The host PC OS is ubuntu 18.04.

Here are the steps I took:
1,Connect Jetson AGX to the host PC.
Uses TypeC-USB cable.
Connect the Type-C side to the GPIO side of Jetson AGX and connect to the host PC.
2,Put Jetson AGX in recovery mode
While pressing the middle button, press and release the power button.
3,Launch sdkmanager on your host PC and perform download and installation
Select and install JetPack 4.4DP

If you do the above, you will get the following error:
Error in local apt settings
SDK Manager received errors while using apt commands on your system. Please check that the Ubuntu local apt repository is working well on your local system including dependencies of packages. Review SDK Manager terminal for the specific error/s.

Please tell me how to resolve the error.

Hi,

What is your result of below command on host?

sudo dpkg --print-architecture
sudo dpkg --print-foreign-architectures

Hi

The following returned when I ran it on the host PC.

・sudo dpkg --print-architecture
amd64

・sudo dpkg --print-foreign-architectures
i386
arm64

Thank you.

Hi,

Could you remove the arm64 architecture on your host and try again?

After removing arm64 and running sdkmanager I was able to install the HOST COMPONETS item.
However, I was unable to install the TARGET COMPONETS item. (Jetson OS ran)
After that, Jetson AGX stopped working.
What should i do.

Here are the steps I took:

  1. Put Jetson AGX in recovery mode and connect to the host PC.
    (Hold down the center button, press and release the power button)
  2. Select and install all items with adkmanager
  3. You will be prompted to enter the Jetson AGX IP address, username and password. Enter the username and password that was set when you first started Jetson AGX (IP address is default).
    (At this point, HOST COMPONETS and Jetson OS will be installed.)
    Then I get the following error:

Can not connect to the device via SSH.Validate that SSH service is running on the device.

  1. Skip and click the [Finish] button to exit sdkmanager.
  2. Remove Jetson AGX from the host PC and connect a monitor, keyboard, etc.
  3. Remove the Jetson AGX power adapter, reconnect and restart.
  4. When Jetson AGX starts normally, the setting screen at the first start is displayed. Make the settings.
  5. Shut down the Jetson AGX and remove the connected monitor, keyboard, etc.
  6. Same operation as 1-2.
    JetsonOS has been reinstalled.
  7. Same error as 3. So I did the same as 4.
  8. Same operation as 5-6.
  9. When I start Jetson AGX, it does not proceed from a certain point.
    The following screen was displayed when Jetson AGX was started.
    After that, the screen flashed and stopped.

cp: not writing through dangling symlink ‘etc/resold.conf’
[6.092207] cgroup: cgroup2 Unknown option ‘nsdelegate’
:
abridgement
:
[8.576152] GPU7:shutdown
[112.322739] edid:invalid

The same screen is displayed even if you execute the recovery mode.
(Hold down the center button, press and release the power button)

what should I do?

The same screen is displayed even if you execute the recovery mode.

This statement is not correct. The device is totally shutdown if the board is really entering recovery mode.

I would prefer you could try oem-config to configure your user account if hdmi monitor is not working.

https://docs.nvidia.com/jetson/l4t/index.html#page/Tegra%20Linux%20Driver%20Package%20Development%20Guide%2Fflashing.html%23wwpID0E0JB0HA

Also, I would like to know if you are a newbie to jetson platform or you’ve tried sdkmanager before.

I have previously set up Jetson NX.
But this is my first time setting up with an sdkmanager like AGX.

The same screen is displayed even if you execute the recovery mode.

That was my mistake.
When I tried again, the startup LED was lit, the screen was black, and nothing was displayed.
I think this is the normal recovery mode.

However, the Jetson AGX boot status during normal boot is the same.
The following screen will appear and the screen will continue to flash.

If you connect a keyboard and input, it will be reflected.
Therefore, the HDMI monitor does not appear to be working.

By the way, connect to the host PC in recovery mode,
The following characters are displayed when sdkmanager is executed.

Either automatic mode or manual mode is selected and executed, but an error occurs in both cases.

[automatic mode]

SDK Manager is about to flash your Jetson AGX Xavier
Connect and set your Jetson AGX Xavier as follows:
1. Choose whether to put your Jetson AGX Xavier into Force Recovery Mode via Manual Setup or Automatic Setup. Choose Automatic Setup only if the device has already been flashed and is currently running.
Automatic SetupManual Setup
a. Ensure the device has already been flashed, is powered, and is running.
b. Connect the host computer to the front USB Type-C connector on the device.
c. Enter the username and password of your Jetson AGX Xavier.

When ready, click ‘Flash’ to continue.
Could not detect NVIDIA Jetson device connected to USB. Verify that: 1. The device is connected to this host machine with a USB cable. 2. Jetson’s Ubuntu OS is up and running. 3. Ubuntu ‘System configuration wizard’ is completed on the device. This can be validated by running the ‘lsusb’ command on your host, and look for “0955:7019” (NVIDIA Corp). Or use the ‘Manual Setup’ instead.

Hi,

This discussion seems very confusing so I need to clarify it again.

However, the Jetson AGX boot status during normal boot is the same.
The following screen will appear and the screen will continue to flash.

I don’t know why do you mention the word “flash” here. Boot and flash are two different things.

The board is able to boot up after you flash the driver and firmware into it.

When you put device into recovery mode (RCM), the device feels like a brick. It will not show anything on screen, the usb you connect on it will also not trigger anything on the monitor. Under that status, connect the usb type C cable to the correct port (please be aware that only one specific type C port on your devkit it able to flash) and you shall see the Nvidia corp shows up on lsusb.

Also, another question here is have you ever flashed your board before? Because the screenshot you pasted here indicates the board is able to boot up, it means either you or the factory has flashed some image on it.

However, I don’t really trust the binary installed by factory so please try to put device into RCM and flash it.

Also, you could read my post here to save time. SDKManager is also using this flash.sh to flash board. You don’t need to open SDKM everytime.

Thank you for your reply.
The setting is complete! !!

JetsonOS was installed using flash.sh.

cd ./home/nvdia/nvidia_sdk/JetPAck_4.4_Linux_P2888/Linux_for_Terga (The folder name is a little different) sudo ./flash.sh jetson-xavier mmcblk0p1
Then I was able to install the rest of the items using SDK Manager as follows:

  1. Start Jetson AGX as usual
    2, execute the initial setting
  2. Connect to the host PC during login (Desktop screen)
  3. Start SDK Manager on the host PC.
    5, uncheck the Jetson OS installation item
    6、Installation execution

Thank you very much! !!
