Jetson TX2 NX, Nano carrier board

Hello seed community,

I purchased a Jetson TX2 NX module and hoped to use it as a stepping stone to the Xavier NX. I’ve attempted to flash the module while cradled in a Jetson Nano carrier board, but the nvidia SDK manager wasn’t pleased with my shenanigans.

I guess my first question is: have I misunderstood the “form factor and pin compatibility with the jetson nano”? It appears the jetson carrier boards from nvidia are not compatible with the module.

If it is possible to use these carrier boards, is there a manually way to flash it at the command line?

I’m very fresh to the jetson scene, so forgive if the answers to the questions should be self-evident.

Thank you so much for your feedback,
