Great idea linuxdev :) Temporary mirror link: http://files.jarzebski.pl/L4T/Tegra_Linux_Sample-Root-Filesystem_R19.3.0_armhf.tbz2

Sorry everyone that the link to the old R19.3 sample rootfs was down, it turned out to be a web cache problem mixed with an internal server change, but it is finally resolved, you can now access the R19.3 sample root filesystem again from the “https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/793782/sample-filesystem-link-for-tegra-jetson-19-3-release-/” page again.

Hi All,

I am new to the Jetson world. Please pardon me if I make any wrong assumptions.

I need help with a few issues. I stumbled upon this thread while looking for answers.

I’ve been reading mixed results about flashing the Jetson using a virtual machine to load the new Linux For Tegra R21.4. I’ve tried two-three times, but my lsusb does not recognize the Jetson. Is this because I am using a Virtual Machine? (Ubuntu 14.04 on Windows 8 host using VirtualBox).

Also, when the installation reached a point to put the Jetson into Force Recovery Mode it states to do the following:
1. power down the jetson, remove the ac adapter.
2. connect the jetson to the host pc using the USB (Ubuntu 14.04 guest on Win 8 host using VirtualBox in my case)
3. Connect the power adapter to the device.
4. Press and release the power button, if necessary; press and hold the Force Recovery button; while depressing the Force Recovery button, press and release the Reset button; wait two seconds and release the Force Recovery Key

My question regarding the above process is won’t carrying out step 3 turn on the Jetson?

Thank you in advance for all your help.

This is the wrong thread, I see the question duplicated in a better thread where answers should go.

‘question’ 1. Flashing works fine through a virtual machine, the only ‘extra’ step is to enable the USB device pass through thing.
https://www.howtoforge.com/virtualbox-2-how-to-pass-through-usb-devices-to-guests-on-an-ubuntu-8.10-host
Yes, its for ubuntu host, but the interface is nearly the same.
Basically, its just the thing on the bottom right hand side of virtual box part. After that, it should appear using ‘lsusb’ on the virtual machine.

question 2. getting it into recovery mode.
Those are some pretty detailed steps.
heres what i do.
Plug it in, and let it power for a couple seconds.
Hold force recovery, and then press reset.
continue holding force recovery for a couple sec and then release.

should appear through ‘lsusb’ after you have enabled the usb pass through on Virtual box, and you should be all set.

Hi Turpinator,

I can detect other USB devices like my memory stick and others.
It is only the Jetson that goes undetected.

Also, regarding your instructions for question 2. When you say ‘plug it in’, I assume you mean plug in the ac adapter. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks.

Jetson not showing up on USB implies either the Jetson is not using the correct supplied micro-B cable, or else Jetson is not in recovery mode.

I flash my Jetson using VMware VM with no problem. As linuxdev told, VM can “see” device only when it is in recovery mode. After that, you need to connect it to VM using menu “VM->removable devices->Nvidia xxxx”.

Thanks, added to the main list.

I would have to hire a graphic designer virtual assistant to guide me with this. It seems a little complicated for a newbie like me.

This is probably the wrong thread to reply to for hiring. Preferably you could start a new thread, or perhaps add something here:
