Thanks a lot for reading/answering
I made it bootable on L4T 24.2.1 with micro sd card on Pro (500GB) version, but not 2017 version.
I read pretty much every reply on this thread, several other threads and other websites trying to figure out how to do this. I made a md doc in my github (github.com/na6an/ShieldTV) pulling all relevant info in one place. You can also check this doc out (gravity.phy.umassd.edu/ShieldDIY.pdf) - which is basically the same procedure as this post, but more step by step style. (sorry, cannot post links yet)
TRY NOT TO FLASH NEW DTB IF YOU DECIDED TO STICK ON 2017 MODEL.
Like I briefly mentioned in my github, I actually tried on two 2017 versions before tried on Pro version but hard bricked twice by flashing wrong dtb (tried several dtb's because method posted here didn't seem to work on my 2017), had to returned them both.
I failed booting from usb by following this post with "sda1.img"
One thing I noticed that mine works on "mmcblk0p1.img" with external micro sd card, not "mmcblk1p1.img" although this post says it's for internal eMMC. So, my guess is the port name could be different. 2017 version doesn't have micro sd card slot, so you might want to try with sd card reader usb.
