Use external SD Card to run Torizon OS on Apalis iMX8 QuadMax 4Gb WiFi/ bluetooth IT

I forgot my login credentials.There is no forget password option available.
I want to connect Capacitive Touch Display 10.1 Inch LVDS to Apalis Evaluation Board that contains Apalis iMX8.
Now I want to use external SD card to set up the Torizon OS.What should be the specification of the SD card that I should buy?
How should I do that ?

Hi @Jintu ,

Please re-flash the OS on your module using Toradex Easy Installer.

Hi @sahil.tx,
My Apalis Evaluation Board is not recognized by my Laptop. What should I do?

Hi @Jintu ,
What recognition are you talking about?
Please tell us the steps you followed and the error you are getting.

Hi @sahil.tx ,
I have connected USB01_CL to my laptop.Ethernet connection was provided to the board.
I have given the following commands.

jintu@jintu-george-renji:~$ ssh torizon@apalis-imx8-072xxxx
ssh: Could not resolve hostname apalis-imx8-072xxxx: Temporary failure in name resolution

Hi @Jintu ,
You can see the error clearly
"Could not resolve hostname apalis-imx8-072xxxx:"
The network does not know what is apalis-imx8-072xxxx or simple it can not resolve this name to address.
Instead, try using IP address

Hi @Jintu,
Anyways, you will not be able to login because you have already lost your password.
As guided earlier, please re-flash the module using the step by step procedure provided in the article.

Hi @sahil.tx ,

I have Installed Torizon OS again by putitng my Apalis iMX8 in Recovery Mode.I have created username and password succesfully.But when I try to connect after some time using hostname but I can’t.Then I tried using IP address.It is getting refused.

jintu@jintu-george-renji:~$ ip a

jintu@jintu-george-renji:~$ ssh torizon@xxx.xx.x.xx
ssh: connect to host xxx.xx.x.xx port 22: Connection refused
jintu@jintu-george-renji:~$ ^C

How can I solve this.I am new to Toradex and Linux Terminal. It would be really helpful if you can explain in detail.

Hi @Jintu,
You need to use the ip address of your device where you want to login.
Here it should be the ip address of your Apalis iMX8
