JetPack Version 4.3

Installing Jetpack

First, let’s install the NVIDIA JetPack. NVIDIA JetPack SDK is the most comprehensive solution for building AI applications. Use the JetPack installer to flash your Jetson Developer Kit with the latest OS image, install developer tools for both host PC and the Developer Kit, and install libraries and APIs, samples, and documentation needed to jumpstart your development environment. The most recent version at the time of writing this article is JetPack 4.1.1.

For the most part, installation is easy. From an Ubuntu 16.04 or Ubuntu 18.04 PC host computer, you simply download JetPack from the NVIDIA JetPack web page(you’ll have to sign in with your developer account to download JetPack) and follow the instructions in the setup guide.
