For AGX Xavier, you may also want to purchase a compatible wireless network card.
For AGX Orin, you may want to purchase an active DisplayPort to HDMI adapter/cable.
For older boards, you can use the raw image here and install it on a SD card. Plug the SD card on the Jetson board after installation and boot it up.
For AGX Xavier (newer boards), follow the steps:
Use NVIDIA SDK Manager following the User Guide of your board, in the Jetpack section. (SDK Manager does not support Ubuntu 20.04, Use Ubuntu 18.04 instead)
You may want to install Jetpack 4.4.1 for better compatibility. DeepStream is optional, depending on your usages.
- Set Jetson board to
Powerbutton, then release them both) and refresh the SDK Manager, your board module should pop up. If you have trouble recognizing the board interface or buttons, see the bottom of the board. It has tiny texts showing
- Start the installation in SDK Manager.
- After the OS is installed on the board, a prompt will pop up on your PC.
- Now set up the OS on the Jetson board (may need to plug in a keyboard, mouse, and monitor). Set up the network (Wifi/Ethernet) on your Jetson board and use
ifconfigto find your Jetson local IP.
- Type in the Jetson IP, username, and password on the prompt on your PC. The SDK Manager will now install the SDKs and tools on the Jetson baord.
- Install the SD card on your Jetson board (not required for AGX Xavier) and boot it up.
Detailed steps can be found in the SDK Manager Documentation.
Follow the tutorials for further instructions.

git clone https://github.com/jetsonhacks/jetsonUtilities cd jetsonUtilities python3 jetsonInfo.py
You may want to VNC or SSH into the board without plugging in keyboard & mouse & monitor.
Follow this post to enable auto-login (for automatically launching VNC server). Specifically:
cd /etc/gdm3 sudo vim custom.conf # Uncomment the following lines and enter your username: #AutomaticLoginEnable=true #AutomaticLogin = <Your_User_Name>
Execute the following commands:
sudo apt update sudo apt install vino # Inform the system which graphic display to interact with export DISPLAY=:0 # Configure autostart mkdir -p ~/.config/autostart cp /usr/share/applications/vino-server.desktop ~/.config/autostart # Enable the VNC server gsettings set org.gnome.Vino prompt-enabled false gsettings set org.gnome.Vino require-encryption false # Reboot the system so that the settings take effect sudo reboot
If VNC server doesn’t seem to work after reboot, follow the official tutorial.
Solely following the official tutorial above doesn’t seem to work on AGX Orin. Therefore, the commands provided above are required.
You can then connect to Jetson with any VNC client (e.g., RealVNC) from your PC.
Old Method (2021): Follow this thread and this thread to install VinoVNC.
The VNC screen resolution can be changed by
xorg.conf, following this guide.
sudo apt install openssh-server
If you encountered issues when installing OpenCV, see this thead and this thread.
It can also be used in a virtual environment as mentioned in this post.
In general, you don’t need to compile OpenCV by yourself.
You need to install the wheels provided by NVIDIA instead of using

torchvision, see this thread.
If you encountered unknown issues, you may install the wrong version of PyTorch in most cases. Please keep in mind 3 versions: (1) Jetpack version, (2) PyTorch version, and (3) TorchVision version.
TensorRT comes with JetPack 5.0.2.
You can view your JetPack version by:
sudo apt-cache show nvidia-jetpack
as mentioned in this thread.
If TensorRT doesn’t exist on your system, please re-flash it (or install it) with NVIDIA SDK Manager.
