Default [Q] system.img file extraction

Hello guys,

I am trying to extract the system.img file from the Note 10.1 2014 edition stock ROM. It seems that Samsung had also manipulated the file system again. I used to generate an ext4 img file, so that I can mount it in Linux Reader on Windows. However, this method is not working any more.

The tool I used was sgs2img.jar, but as I said, it gets stuck on 32 bytes.

Any idea??

I managed to extract a previous version of firmware of P600, MID, using first Chainfire's sgs4ext4fs utility - https://github.com/Chainfire/sgs4ext4fs - (compiled for Windows). First I trimmed the img with "sgs4ext4fs --trim system.img systemt.img" then I used sgs2ext4.jar to make the systemt.ext4.img file that could be mounted with Linux Reader.
However, the new MJ6 version doesn't work like that.
Maybe someone else could find out what's changed with the new versions.
I attached the Windows version of sgs4ext4fs utility because the source code must be slightly modified for Windows.
