SDK Manager description of flashing

Dear whom it may concern,

I use SDK Manager to install Xavier with DRIVE 10.0, but found in the flashing step the description is “Connect the device to your network using an Ethernet cable”(https://docs.nvidia.com/drive/drive_os_5.1.6.1L/drive-qsg/install-with-sdkm-drive/index.html). However, actually I need to use the A-A USB cable to connect the debug port for flashing rather than using the ethernet cable.

So my question is:

  1. Is it a mistake for description, or I misunderstood it?
  2. Is using USB cable to connect debug port to flash the correct approach?

Thanks!

Dear hayang.zhuang,
Yes. You need to connect your host and board with with A-A cable. Also, you need to connect to connect your board and host PC to internet using Ethernet as during installation it downloads some packages from internet.
