Hi @user_1,

@lramirez is currently a few days off, I’ll ping him to get back to you once he’s around again. Sorry for any inconveniences!

Hello @user_1,

This utility comes from nVidia, directly from their docs for Jetpack 4.6, I have not tried 5.1 myself yet.

Based on the latest docs it looks like the syntax is still the same. So just a couple of questions:

  • Are you sure the device is in factory reset mode? (check the jumper on the device).
  • Can you try another SD card?

If the script doesn’t work by any chance, I would suggest going to Nvidia’s official docs as they are the ones that developed that script.

Have a nice day!

HI @lramirez ,

Device details:

Nvidia Jetson NX (emmc)
120GB Storage(Nvme driver)
Jetpack version 4.6
Operating System: Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS
Kernel: Linux 4.9.253-tegra
  • Currently we’re using Jetpack 4.6.
  • We’re able to falsh the Jetson Xavier NX-emmc on Nvme driver with A/B partition.
    Used Nvidia doc to flash on Nvme driver
  • Created Image using The mender way.
  • Generated mender artifact
  • Uploaded mender artifact to

We’ve changed one line from below file, as we’re using Nvme deriver as root filesystem.

i.e ./ /dev/mmcblk0 replaced with ./ /dev/nvme0n1


The issue, we’re facing while deploying the artifact into device.
