Does Cygwin have a command equivalent to sudo mount -o loop factoryfs.ext4 factoryfs? If so, what is it?

I think you're missing a "mount" in there somewhere... – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Feb 8 '11 at 12:06

No, you can't mount filesystem images using Cygwin. Cygwin mount supports only mounting Windows directories/disks to directories inside Cygwin. See for example

Workaround for some filesystems is to mount disk as normal Windows disk and then mount that to Cygwin. For example ext2 is supported in Windows with additional drivers.
