unofficial script for Jetson Nano(L4T Jetson-Nano-Tegra210_Linux_R32.1.0_aarch64) to enable SPI0 (SPI1 on Developer Kit's Pin 19, 21, 23 and 24)

  2. Turn the Jetson Nano into Recovery Mode
  3. Connect the Jetson Nano and the Linux PC with a USB cable

    • ./


The difference between original and modified tegra210-p3448-0002-p3449-0000-a02.dts:
