Memory Access issue with TX1 in Jetpack 4.3

Hi Sir,

We upgraded the TX1 from Jetpack 4.2 to Jetpack 4.3 and found the Memory Access issue.
In the meanwhile, we checked the NV forum and found there is a patch file Nvidia released for the TK1. We would like to check if there is a file for the TX1 to solve this kind of issue.
Below are our test steps and log file.

  1. Upgraded TX1 from Jetpack 4.2 to Jetpack 4.3
  2. Tested with our application, there were random system crash issues that happened during the testing process.
  3. Tested again but disabled our application. No system crash issues happened.
  4. Re-verified in disabling our application but with a Memory R/W testing program. System crashes again in the testing.
  5. We searched the NV forum and found there is a patch file for the TK1.

Happens within 2 hours and up on some units and 7-10 hours on others.
Fault looks like this.

48[26512.337619] Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed!

Suggest to move on the latest JetPack 4.6.2 for better support. Thanks

Hi Sir,

This upgraded request is from our end customer’s application upgrade.
Since the TX1 system is still deployed and used in the field site, this patch file is needed to release our customer’s pain point.

Thank you!!


Which patch it is? Please help to ponit it out, then can double check if existing or can be back posting.

We refer to the below link from the NV forum the TK1 patch to resolve the 4GB DRAM memory access issue.

Hi Sir,

Do you have similar patch files like TK1 that we can use on the TX1?
We followed your suggestion and upgraded the TX1 system to the Jetpack 4.6.2, the same, we face the Memory access issue in this version. (Refer to the attached log file.)
Do you have any solution for this issue?

The patch is not required for TX1. This should be a different case. For further check, please share steps so that we can replicate the issue on TX1 developer kit and do investigation.
