Failed flashing t210ref.

Done under Virtualbox under OS X in Ubuntu 14.04

Might have downloaded the TK1 stuff instead. Double checking…

VMs can work, but my first suspicion in such a case is Virtualbox configuration or permissions. If the Jetson is actually in recovery mode and USB is connected correctly, then the following command should show the presence of the USB device from the Linux host environment:

lsusb -d 0955:7721

If the Jetson is in recovery mode and nothing shows up, then the USB port was not passed through.

Nothing shows up. I’ll look again a bit later. Thanks for the help and I’ll keep you updated
