I have a micro sd card that contains these partitions:
Disk /dev/sdb: 29,7 GiB, 31914983424 bytes, 62333952 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disklabel type: dos Disk identifier: 0xa6202af7 Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type /dev/sdb1 8192 122879 114688 56M c W95 FAT32 (LBA) /dev/sdb2 122880 10608639 10485760 5G 83 Linux
I would like to clone it but just cloning those two partitions, not the entire 29,7GB. So I used this command:
dd bs=1M count=$((5431623169 / (1024*1024) + 1)) if=/dev/sdb of=myimage.img truncate -s 5431623169
This should create a image with the two partitions. Now I would like to mount the second partition of myimage.img to modify it. I'm therefore running the command:
sudo mount -t ext4 -o loop,offset=62914560 myimage.img mount/
however this produces the following output:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so.
sdb1 instead mounts just fine. I'm sure it is ext4 as blkid returns that.
This micro sd card is a comlpete firmware for a Raspberry Pi Linux system. If I flash myimage.img to a new sd card and run it, the system seems to work properly, which means it is able to mount it.
Any idea why I'm not able to mount it manually using the mount command as I shown above?
