Ok, I tried this with system.img from new ICS for Neo V and this is what I got:
Quote:

root@ubuntu:/home/madfish/android/system# mount -o loop system.img system
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

any idea?


p.s. I also have problems with making those ext4 utilities: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1&postcount=83
EDIT: problem with ext4 utilities is solved, but problem with mounting is still here.

Why don't you just download an ICS rom based on official ICS for Neo or Neo V?
And you can easily extract the system.img with Android Kitchen

because I like to learn and try new things, which is why I wanted to do this myself.
besides, why downloading someones rom, when I can download extracted system partition which someone did already.
but that's not the point

I feel like I am missing something, Please help!! thanks a million

thanks

i'm doing it right now... i will test it during weekend and then if i find the way to upload the file on the xda fileserver i will upload it...

i'm sad but it can't be done... anyway... i found a better way to root avoiding to download megs and megs... (that's really stupid if it's possibile in my way...) so...
just flash DoomKernel... boot once, turn off...
extract Kernel.sin from ftf package then reflash this... you have a perfect, original, stock, and shining italian .73 rom with root!

(with unlocked bootloader)

same here... with .73 Italy... sin2img didn't work correctly as the result is not mountable as EXT4, also forcing it with "-t ext4" id didn't work... dmesg shows that it can't find ext4 partition... wtf!
