Jetson Orin NX

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN?

1- Including the Kernel Files in Jetson OS Image

2- Installing the Jetson OS

3- Installing the Jetson SDK Components

ENVIRONMENT

Hardware: RAIBOX-ORNX with 250GB NVME SSD

Host OS: Ubuntu 18.04

In this tutorial, we will install JetPack-5.1.1 for RAIBOX-ORNX. First, we will include our BSP files in Jetson OS image. Then, we will install the Jetson OS into the RAIBOX-ORNX. Finally, we will install the Jetson SDK components into it.


This tutorial is compatible for all types of Jetson Orin NX modules (16GB and 8GB). 

Including the Kernel Files in Jetson OS Image

Open the NVIDIA SDK Manager. Select “JetPack 5.1.1” for Target Operating System and select the correct module for your installation (“Jetson Orin NX modules”). The “Host Machine” components are not required. 


Then, continue to Step 2.


Choose only “Jetson Linux”, accept the terms & conditions and continue to Step 3.


The SDK Manager will ask the username’s password. Fill it and continue.


After the Jetson OS has created, the SDK Manager asks the Jetson module’s flashing style. Just skip it and exit from the SDK Manager.


Open the target HW image folder. 

(For Orin NX:     ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.1.1_Linux_JETSON_ORIN_NX_TARGETS/)


For Orin NX:

        Download the BSP files from GitHub link and extract it.


Copy all files to the target HW image folder.


Open a Terminal in the “Linux_for_Tegra” folder.


Create the system binaries with these commands below:


sudo ./tools/l4t_flash_prerequisites.sh
sudo ./apply_binaries.sh


Apply the new BSP files and interface configurations with the following commands below:


cd ..
sudo ./replace_bsp_files.sh
cd Linux_for_Tegra/


Hint: If you want to configure your username-password & hostname with default settings, you can create user without the Ubuntu installation wizard. To do this, the user generation command structure should be:


sudo tools/l4t_create_default_user.sh -u {USERNAME} -p {PASSWORD} -a -n {HOSTNAME} --accept-license

For example (username:"nvidia", password:"nvidia", device-name:"nvidia-orin-nx"):


sudo tools/l4t_create_default_user.sh -u nvidia -p nvidia -a -n nvidia-orin-nx --accept-license

Jetson OS Installation

Connect the recovery USB (between installer PC & RAIBOX-ORNX's recovery USB) and power connection of your RAIBOX-ORNX.


While the RAIBOX-ORNX's power connector plugged in,

• press reset & recovery buttons together

• release reset button

• release the recovery button after 3 seconds later. This will set it to Recovery mode.


Then, type “lsusb” and check the device connected in Recovery mode. ("0955:7323 NVidia Corp." for Orin NX 16GB, "0955:7423 NVidia Corp." for Orin NX 8GB)


Flash the Jetson OS with this command below:


sudo ./tools/kernel_flash/l4t_initrd_flash.sh --external-device nvme0n1p1 -c tools/kernel_flash/flash_l4t_external.xml -p "-c bootloader/t186ref/cfg/flash_t234_qspi.xml" --showlogs --network usb0 jetson-orin-nano-devkit internal


At the end of the script, the device will reboot. Complete your Ubuntu installation wizard (if you have not created a user with tools/l4t_create_default_user.sh script file) from the RAIBOX-ORNX (language, keyboard type, location, username & password etc.).


To avoid kernel update with "apt upgrade" or "apt-get upgrade" commands, please follow this guide on the Jetson module.



[Optional] If you will use the recovery USB port as host (to be able to connect USB-2 & USB-3 devices), please open a terminal from the Jetson Orin and type the following command below. This will update its current device-tree and reboot it. 

Otherwise, you can use this port for virtual network communication (file transfer etc. between host PC with 192.168.55.1 IP address) in default.


sudo switch_dtb.sh

Jetson SDK Components Installation

[Optional] Delete LibreOffice & ThunderBird packages (if you don’t need) and remove the unnecessary packages to increase the free space. To do this, type these commands to the RAIBOX-ORNX side:


sudo apt remove -y libreoffice* thunderbird*
sudo apt autoremove -y
sudo apt clean


Connect the RAIBOX-ORNX to the Ethernet. Then, open the NVIDIA SDK Manager. Select “JetPack 5.1.1” for Target Operating System and select the correct module for your installation (“Jetson Orin NX modules”). The “Host Machine” components are not required. (Additional SDKs (DeepStream) are optional). 


Then, continue to Step 2.


Choose at least “Jetson Runtime Components” (“Jetson SDK Components” are optional. It depends on your use case), accept the terms & conditions and continue to Step 3.


The SDK Manager will ask the username’s password. Fill it and continue.


Type the IP address, username and password of Jetson Orin module and install the SDK Components.

At the end of the installation, the RAIBOX-ORNX becomes ready. 

Attention: If you will have unmet dependencies after the SDK components installed, please open a terminal from the Jetson side and type the following command below. This will fix the problem.


sudo apt install -y libxmlb2 ubuntu-advantage-desktop-daemon libfwupdplugin5 libpciaccess-dev
