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 http://www.cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/using.html#mount-table

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.
