Do you have a micro-sd card reader? You could flash it that way with etcher for example. In Linux, gnome-disks and dd also work but from what I understand don’t do verification passes like etcher (unless you do one manually on your own).

Hi jarosky,

Are you connect micro-usb to host via usb hub?
If yes, please try to connect usb port directly or try another usb port and usb cable.
Thanks!

If I want to use etcher. Where can I get the image from?
Thank you

I am not using a usb hub. I tried with different wires and ports and it doesnt work.
Thank you!

Here are the instructions and a list to the image (top of the page).

Does that image have the jetpack 4.2?

Yes, You can also download the image here but the download link is exactly the same. You simply download the zip, follow the instructions to use etcher to flash it onto a micro-sd card using a reader, then put that into the Nano and power it on.

Hi jarosky,

Are you using VM to flash JetPack-4.2?
We’re not support VM server.

You can reference this topic: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1051135/jetson-nano/sdkmanager-jetson-nano-flash-jetson-os-crashes-at-3-1-/post/5335114/#5335114

I was using a VM. I decided to flash the SDCARD directly and it worked.
Thank you!

I had the same problem “terminated with error”. Flashing aborted at 3% in manual and automatic mode. Python was missing in my case. The error was a few lines above and I haven’t seen it on the first view.

Solved problem on host machine with

sudo apt-get install python

It worked after that inside SDK
