I have an image of the /system partition for nexus 4, but I do not have a nexus 4.

Could someone please tell me the filesystem type it is mounted as.

May I ask a few questions please, as I do have the information you're requesting. How do you come to have the "image" without the actual phone? Where did you get it? On what OS platform does your "image" exist, and in what form? A tar file on Linux, zip on Windows, a collection of directories and files, dd output, etc.?

How do you intend to mount it and what purpose will it serve, e.g what do you intend to do with it?

I'm not sure what it mounts as. Wouldn't that be standard for Android?

What does that matter?

The request here is to take Terminal Emulator, enter this command:

mount

And report back what it says next to /system - for example, ext4.

OH WOW! I knew that. Sorry. I'll get right on that. Be right back. My images are auto-uploading to G+ right now. Probably have them in a few hours.

It matters because I'm curious, and this a forum for asking questions.

It's also for answering, I was just confused that you know but won't answer without setting conditions.
