Sugestion: video/image guide to prepare bootable USB drive with Jetpack 4.5


If possible and any interest I ask you if you wouild make a video guide on how to prepare bootable USB drive with Jetpack 4.5. I have read through the text guide you link, but I get lost at recovery mode.

Thank you.


+1 here - that would be just amazing, because 2 days of my trial and error didn’t bring any results

+1 I have tried several things and as a result I’m still running from an SD card. The official documentation is quite confusing.

The official documentation covers how to do it with the SDK Manager, but for doing so you must have a Debian-based distro in a x64 computer, then install SDKM, get some jumper wires or buttons, and carefully follow the instructions.
I also tried modifying /etc/fstab and /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf in the microSD image with no success.
A ready-to-write USB image (given that you already updated the QSPI from a microSD) would be nice.

With all do respect, I was waiting for Jetpack 4.5 to be issued just for USB boot option. But comparing this to “idiot proof” microSD card prepartion, the procedure is quite demanding,with negative results as I read the comments.
I hope that Nvidia would make some kind of tool that would prepare USB drive/flash in a “single step”, more or less.
