    Which runned Sucessfully.

3. Then i followed chmod +x JetPack-L4T-2.0-linux-x64.run and runned the installer which created _installer directory.

  1. Following ./cuda-l4t.sh …/cuda-repo-l4t-r23.1-7-0-local_7.0-71_armhf.deb 7.0 7-0 the error is showing

Awaiting for your earliest reply and Thanks in advance

Hi Amitava, you reference JetPack-L4T-2.0 in your post above. This is outdated version. Please download the latest JetPack-L4T-2.3.1 to your host PC and re-flash and complete the post-install steps.

Note that JetPack is to be run from the host PC while the Jetson is connected in recovery mode via micro-USB and ethernet. After flashing the image, JetPack will reboot the Jetson and connect over the network via SSH to complete the post-install steps, including installing CUDA toolkit. Note that by default, JetPack will automatically install the CUDA toolkit DEB package to your Jetson, you don’t need to do it.

Hello

Thanks for your reply. I can find Jetpack L4T 3.0 can i download the same and use for Jetson TX1 flashing

Also does Jetson TX 1 need to be connected with HDMI monitor during flashing ?

Awaiting for your reply and thanks in advance

Regards
AMITAVA

Yes, after downloading JetPack-L4T 3.0 to the host PC and running it, select Jetson TX1 in the dialogue and it will install the appropriate version for TX1.

Yes it is recommended to have HDMI monitor connected to Jetson during flashing, because after flashing completes, the host PC will reset the Jetson and it’s good to verify the Jetson boots up before waiting for it to establish SSH connection over the network. Also this way you can obtain the IP address if necessary of the Jetson if JetPack has a problem querying it automatically with DHCP.
