Making & burning image file for emmc

i have a jetson orin (with emmc as main disk) works well and i want to clone whole system into an image and burn it to another board. Could not find any instruction for this case (most are with sd card).

appreciate any advice/opinion


Last time I attempted something like this was in a Xavier AGX. Using the script provided with the JetPack installation on your PC may be possible to perform what you need with the Orin NX.

sudo ./ -r -k APP -G backup.img jetson-orin-nx-devkit mmcblk0p1

To flash the backup in other system you could try:

mv bootloader/system.img bootloader/system_original.img
cp backup.img bootloader/system.img
sudo ./ -r -k APP jetson-orin-nx-devkit mmcblk0p1

Hope this info helps.

as you use eMMC as the main storage, you may just follow steps provided by @jchaves,
or if you switch to an NVMe drive, refer to Linux_for_Tegra/tools/backup_restore/README_backup_restore.txt for instructions.
