Trouble running (e2f)sck on the system partition

(remount / partition as rw)

In case anyone stumbles on this thread and attempts to run (e2f)sck on the system partition via ADB in FTM mode - don't do that. It indeed found errors however it wasn't able to correct them (it output a message about an invalid argument passed to ext2 library) and left the system partition in an unusable state - the phone went into an endless boot loop.

It was still possible to go into FTM mode. I tried wiping and doing factory reset via the recovery but it didn't help.

I was above to recover from this situation only by loading new firmware (I loaded MC2-1130-0-10CN-A02 in .nb0 format (obtained on using the SUTL LR loader (also obtained there) followed by the ROM from Needrom).
