On my custom carrier board, VDD_IN of the Orin NX is equal to 12V. POWER_EN’s control circuitry is completely referenced by ‘Jetson_Nano_Carrier_Board_Design_Files_B01_P3449’. Two seconds after VDD_IN is stable, the 5V voltage powers up. 500 milliseconds after the 5V power is stable, POWER_EN becomes high. SYS_RESET* is used as enable for carrier board supplies (3.3V and 1.8v).
I have changed the pinmux configuration and updated board configuration files by referring to MB1 Configuration Change.
When the flashing process reaches the stage described below , the problem arises.
Step 2: Boot the device with flash initrd image

When the problem occurs, the final output of the serial console of SOM is as follows.The complete output of the serial console of SOM during the flashing process is shown in the attachment.

At this point, the Orin NX SOM exits RCM and the host cannot discover the device through ‘lsusb’.
It seems the MB1 encountered an error while doing SOC rail configuration. But I did not modify the file of “tegra234-mb1-bct-pmic-p3767-0000-a02.dts”.
My custom carried board is a little different from Jetson Orin NX Carrier Board.
1.From GPIO00 to GPIO14, there are some usage differences. For example, GPIO04 is used as input.
2.I2C1 is connected with FXMA2102L8X.
3.UART1_TXD and UART1_RXD are connected with SN74AVC2T245RSWR.
4.UART1_RTS and UART1_CTS are connected with M.2 Key E (whose slot is empty).
Who can give some advice?
So you are able to flash it on orin nano devkit/ xavier nx devkit?
On our custom carrier board, we used another Orin NX 16GB SOM that was successfully flashed with devkit. The new SOM is powered on our custom carrier board, and the fault appears at the same point.
Are you trying to say you got 2 modules that cannot work on your board but working fine on devkit?
Please review your board with the design guide document first.
Thank you. Ours HW team has reviewed the schematic several times with the design guide document. But because the Power Supply and Sequencing is different from the design guide, we don’t get more clues.
Inspired by the “work around” of the post-https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/t/jetson-xaviernx-bootloader-mb1-fails-on-a-custom-board/153673/7，we commented out the following section of “tegra234-mb1-bct-pmic-p3767-0000-a02.dts”.

slave-addr = <0x78>;

Now, MB1 can continue to run when flashing. But four pieces of debugging information appeared.

We will continue with subsequent flashing.
After removing some warnings such as ‘USB over current condition’ by modifying the device tree, flashing the SOM succeeded. But there are still two obvious issues.
- After Linux kernel is started, four CPUs are shut down.

- MOD_ SLEEP * is always low.
MOD_SLEEP* is high normally.
Our circuit of MOD_SLEEP* almost entirely references P3509-A01 and P3768-A04 as follows. But R106 is DNI in P3509-A01 and P3768-A04.
We removed U18 and connected NX_3V3 and VDD_3V3_HDMI directly. Then D6 is bright, and HDMI normally output.
Sorry for the late response, is this still an issue to support? Thanks
So far, our custom carrier board has been running normally.
When MOD_SLEEP* was high normally, we again flashed the SOM. The error that occurred at the SOC rail configuration of MB1 has disappeared.
