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: MILBOARD-AGX

Host OS: Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS


In this tutorial, we will install JetPack-5 for MILBOARD-AGX. First, we will include our Image, DTB & pinmux files in Jetson OS image. Then, we will install the Jetson OS into the MILBOARD-AGX. Finally, we will install the Jetson SDK components into it.


Attention: If you want to transfer the root file-system to an external drive and it has another JetPack version root file system, please format it before starting this blog post.


Including the Kernel Files in Jetson OS Image

Open the NVIDIA SDK Manager. Select the correct JetPack version for Target Operating System and the Target Hardware (we selected “Jetson AGX Orin modules” for AGX Orin. If you will flash it for AGX Xavier or AGX Xavier Industrial, please select “Jetson AGX Xavier 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.


A few seconds later...


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.

          AGX Orin: ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.1.1_Linux_JETSON_AGX_ORIN_TARGETS/

          AGX Xavier or AGX Xavier Industrial: ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.1.1_Linux_JETSON_AGX_XAVIER_TARGETS/

For JetPack-5.1.2

          AGX Orin or AGX Orin Industrial: ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.1.2_Linux_JETSON_AGX_ORIN_TARGETS/

          AGX Xavier or AGX Xavier Industrial: ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.1.2_Linux_JETSON_AGX_XAVIER_TARGETS/

For JetPack-5.1.3

          AGX Orin or AGX Orin Industrial: ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.1.3_Linux_JETSON_AGX_ORIN_TARGETS/

          AGX Xavier or AGX Xavier Industrial: ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.1.3_Linux_JETSON_AGX_XAVIER_TARGETS/


For JetPack-5.1:

        Download the BSP files from GitHub link and extract it (AGX Xavier, AGX Xavier Industrial, AGX Orin)

For JetPack-5.1.1:

        Download the BSP files from GitHub link and extract it (AGX Xavier, AGX Xavier Industrial, AGX Orin)

For JetPack-5.1.2:

        Download the BSP files from GitHub link and extract it (AGX Xavier, AGX Xavier Industrial, AGX Orin, AGX Orin Industrial)

For JetPack-5.1.3:

        Download the BSP files from GitHub link and extract it (AGX Xavier, AGX Xavier Industrial, AGX Orin, AGX Orin Industrial)


Hint: The following steps have done for AGX Orin, but they are the same for the other Jetson module types (only the BSP files and flashing commands are different).


Copy all files from the extracted folder to the target HW image folder.


Open a terminal from the "Linux_for_Tegra" folder and create the system binaries with these commands below:


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


Apply the 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-desktop"):


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

Jetson OS Installation

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


While the MILBOARD-AGX's power connector plugged in,

• connect reset & recovery pins with ground (GND) pin together

• remove the reset pin

• remove the recovery pin on ground (GND) pin after 3 seconds later. This will set it to Recovery mode.


Then, type “lsusb” and check the device connected in Recovery mode. 

• "0955:7023 NVidia Corp." for AGX Orin 64GB

• "0955:7223 NVidia Corp." for AGX Orin 32GB

• "0955:7023 NVidia Corp." for AGX Orin Industrial

• "0955:7019 NVidia Corp." for AGX Xavier

• "0955:7919 NVidia Corp." for AGX Xavier Industrial


For AGX Orin, flash the Jetson OS with this script below:


sudo ./flash.sh jetson-agx-orin-devkit mmcblk0p1


For AGX Orin Industrial, flash the Jetson OS with this script below:


sudo ./flash.sh jetson-agx-orin-devkit-industrial mmcblk0p1


For AGX Xavier, flash the Jetson OS with this script below:


sudo ./flash.sh jetson-xavier mmcblk0p1


For AGX Xavier Industrial, flash the Jetson OS with this script below:


sudo ./flash.sh jetson-agx-xavier-industrial mmcblk0p1


A few minutes later …


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 MILBOARD-AGX (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.

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 MILBOARD-AGX side:


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


Connect the MILBOARD-AGX to the Internet. 

Open the NVIDIA SDK Manager. Select the correct JetPack version for Target Operating System and the Target Hardware (we selected “Jetson AGX Orin modules” for AGX Orin. If you will flash it for AGX Xavier or AGX Xavier Industrial, please select “Jetson AGX Xavier modules”) (The “Host Machine” components are not required. Additional SDKs (DeepStream) are optional). 


Then, continue to Step 2.


Unselect the "Jetson Linux" and choose “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 the MILBOARD-AGX and install the SDK Components.


At the end of the installation, the MILBOARD-AGX 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
