Run TSD server on NVIDIA Jetson Nano

If you follow this guide and run into problems, please seek help at:


Hardware requirements

TSD private server can only run on Jetson Nano 4GB model. The 2GB model doesn't have enough memory to run both the program and load the AI model in the memory.

Software requirements

Important: Before you flash new software on your sd card, you will have to fully format it first, so make sure you have backed up anything important on an external device.

The following software is required before you start installing the server:

  • JetPack 4.5 SDK. If you already flashed a different OS on your sd card, you will have to replace it with this one. Slow download of the software from NVIDIA is normal.
    • Important: The last JetPack SDK version this has been tested on is jp45. Newer versions may not work correctly (see bug). If you successfully run this on a newer version, please send a message to the official discord and mention @LyricPants66133
  • Flashing Software
  • SD Card Formatter

Email delivery

You will also need an email account that has SMTP access enabled. For a gmail account, this is how you enable SMTP access. Other web mail such as Yahoo should also work but we haven't tried them.

Get the code and start the server.

  1. Get the code:
git clone -b release
  1. Run it!
cd obico-server
  1. Go grab a coffee. Step 2 will take 15-30 minutes.

  2. There is no step 4. This is how easy it is to get the Obico server up and running (thanks to Docker and Docker-compose).
