I installed TWRP recovery on my phone and backed up the system, data and boot partitions before installing CM12.1.
I would like to extract one stock apk (FM radio) from the backup on a Linux system. How do I mount the system.ext4.win file?
system.ext4.win file to
system.ext4.tarand extract it.
If your TWRP backup is not in compression method, you will directly get to the
/system folder or if your TWRP backup is in compression method, you will get a file named
system.ext4 which you'll have to just rename it to
system.ext4.tar and extract it to
I discovered that it was not necessary to mount it. It was sufficient to extract it with
tar -xf archive_name but this particular app doesn't install.
