I was able to boot into force recovery mode (How to place the jumpers on Xavier NX to put it in Force Recovery mode? - #4 by linuxdev)
In order to make it detectable by the sdk manager.
And then started the flashing process. But it seems to be stuck at 99%.
The storage device I selected is USB (128GB pen drive) instead of eMMC (16GB; which is insufficient for installation and our development)
Kindly support why this could be stuck and how can I possibly resolve this.
I paused it when the popup came asking whether to continue since the installation is taking longer than usual. Thankfully after that I’m able to boot into the board. However I need sdk components also to be installed.
I guess earlier I didn’t have enough space in my host machine where it was downloading. So, I’ve reinstalled Ubuntu 20.04 with more space in my host machine and trying to flash it again.
Kindly suggest if there’s any better approach than reflashing the entire setup. Can I just install the sdk components alone?
If you mean optional packages such as CUDA, then yes, just uncheck the parts you don’t want in sdkmanager. It doesn’t always look obvious, but you can uncheck flash, and uncheck installing anything to host PC. If you just install those optional packages, then boot the Jetson normally (not recovery mode).
Yes, you could select the items what you want to install (which is shown in the Step 4. Review wanted components. of the guide from seeed).
and just like linuxdev said, if you want to install SDK components only, please boot up the board as normal first.
Hi, Thanks. I’ve flashed the board with Jetpack 5.0.2 onto the USB drive by booting into force recovery mode and installed the SDK components also separately. Thanks for the precious help and support. Appreciate it.
