What is the reason for stopping at the ip address of target during a jetpack flash?
“determining the ip address of target”
Why do you stop?
Flash is done entirely via the micro-B USB connection, networking is not involved. During flash the Jetson is in a different mode and not capable of normal communications. After flash completes package install can only continue once the Jetson reboots normally.
Once the Jetson reboots the host must know the address the Jetson is at before it can continue. The mechanism for knowing this information may differ depending on whether the host PC acts as a router or if there is a router connected. The mechanism for notifying JetPack of that address can fail (for example, firewalls might interfere…a VM will stop routing new connections…don’t use a VM…the mechanism is designed to use wired, WiFi will fail…permissions might get in the way, etc.).
To debug you’d have to start by saying if there is a router appliance, or if the PC is acting as router; we’d have to know if a VM is involved (“don’t do it”); it’d be good to see the log of the flash.
