Re: Can DFly mount ext4?

To keep it short, no. There might be some ext4 fs that it might be able
to mount (with specific inode size, lacking all sorts of ext4 features,
etc), but in the general case it's not possible.

I'd recommend you grab your ubuntu CD, start the live system and fix it
from there.
