Hello, I'm writing to seek advice on making the "Jetson Orin NX 16G" module function correctly with the Turing Pi 2 board. This is my second post on this topic. I've already attempted the following steps as outlined in the official Turing Pi documentation (https://docs.turingpi.com/docs/orin-nxnano-flashing-os): Powered off Node 2. Switched Node 2 to device mode. Powered on Node 2. Connected a USB A-A cable from Node 2 to my PC/Mac. Despite these steps, the Turing Pi 2 did not detect the Orin NX 16G module. I also tried an alternative method, where I flashed the Orin NX 16G module using a Nvidia board before inserting it into the Turing Pi 2 board, but this didn't work either as the Turing Pi 2 still failed to recognize the module. I reached out to the Turing Pi 2 technical support team but haven't received a response yet. I'm beginning to suspect there may be an issue with my board. If anyone has successfully connected a Jetson Orin NX 16G module with a Turing Pi 2, I would greatly appreciate your insights and advice on how to accomplish this.

You will need a Linux bare metal machine connected to your Turing PI board. Once done you should see the board connection to USB using "lsusb"

Did you upgrade the firmware to v2.x?
I answered you in the tech support ticket, but I gues we can continue here
Orin NX should work without issues. Can you put it into node 1, connect an HDMI monitor and look what you see? Does it boot?

Greetings, Thanks for your reply. Please find below the summary of what I have tried. The second part has hardware images and information. Please let me know if you need any additional information The following is a summary of what I have tried: - I have put the module into node(1) and connected it to an HDMI monitor. It did not boot and didn’t produce any output. - The module works in the Nvidia carrier board. - I flashed the Orin NX 16G module using a Nvidia board and then inserted it into the Turing Pi 2 board, but this didn't work. Turing Pi 2 failed to recognize the module. - I've already attempted the following steps as outlined in the official Turing Pi documentation (https://docs.turingpi.com/docs/orin-nxnano-flashing-os): o Powered off Node 2. o Switched Node 2 to device mode. o Powered on Node 2. o Connected a USB A-A cable from Node 2 to my PC/Mac. o Despite these steps, the Turing Pi 2 did not detect the Orin NX 16G module.

Please put the module into the Turing Pi2 board, turn it on to the state you think it should boot, and take a few photos from different angles, please. I want to see if I can spot anything obvious.

@ismailhi I have a Jetson Orin NX 16GB installed to my Turing PI 2 v.4 with firmware 2.0.5 and a NVMe 500GB. I flashed Nvidia 35.4.1 using my Turing board on slot 2, it is now mounted on slot 4. Perhaps the following information can help: - Picocom does not yield any output from it. (before or after successful flashing) - Turing board in "flash" mode, Jetson not flashed or flashed, linux computer connected to USB-OTG: You see Jetson in recovery mode - Turing board in "device" mode, Jetson not flashed, linux computer connected to USB-OTG: You see Jetson in recovery mode - Turing board in "device" mode, Jetson flashed, linux computer connected to USB-OTG: You see Jetson in operating mode I flashed the Jetson on the Turing board pretty much following the instructions https://docs.turingpi.com/docs/orin-nxnano-flashing-osfrom with the following changes: - From Jetson Linux Archive I picked drivers from 35.4.1 - Wherever the instruction has 35.3.1 I replaced by 35.4.1 - In the Turing Pi2 Preparation - I set the node to "flash", the instruction calls for "device" but it does not work in "device" mode - The USB cable needs to be connected to the USB that is adjacent to HDMI connector (yep I found it the hard way) - Used the flashing instruction for NVMe I wasn't able to flash the Nvidia version 36.2... for now I am waiting another victim to figure this one out 😉 I hope this helps!
