infinite reboot cycle/wrong arducam-nvidia-l4t-kernel

Hey Ya’ll,

I’m attempting to install MIPI camera driver onto an Nvidia Jetson that has L4T version 3.6.1. I attempted to run the install_full script, but after rebooting and plugging in the camera, my system was unable to find /dev/video*. I did some digging and attempted to download the manual driver for 3.6.1, but I got this error:

sudo dpkg -i arducam-nvidia-l4t-kernel-t194-4.9.253-tegra-32.6.1-20210906014812_arm64.deb

How should I fix this issue?

downgrading arducam-nvidia-l4t-kernel

At this point it looks like the driver has been installed successfully.
Can you revert to this state? Maybe a cable connection problem caused /dev/video* not to appear.

I went ahead and performed a continuity check on the pins of the CSI->HDMI extension module, and everything seems to be in order. I’ve gone ahead and ordered another, but in the mean time, do you have any other solutions?

Can you provide full dmesg logs and hardware connection photos? I can use to diagnose the problem.

Also, does the infinite reboot situation you mentioned in the title still exist?
