Does anybody know how to mount the boot partition?On my nexus 7, I booted to recovery and tried to mount the boot partition using the following-

mount -t ext4 /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/boot /boot

But this failed. I tried to do read-only mount and mount using vfat, but with no success.

  • Hi, Did you find how to do that ? – ransh Dec 2 '16 at 17:54

The boot.img file is a bootfs partition. I also tried to mount this partition, but in the end I stumbled upon this script. It may help you solve your problem.
