I have dd dump from the very start, and also, it wouldnt be a dd dump if the size was not equal to the actual partition - it is a RAW partition copy dude, read up on it

Just a wild guess and to double check:
The filesystem on your SD card does not have a 4GB file size limit, like FAT32?
That would explain why you only get a file of ~4GB size.

That could be a reason for @coderus filesize, yes.

@coderus, I do a dd after every update, and you are wrong!

I DARE you to do a dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/mmcblk0p28
then dd if=yourbackup.bin if=/dev/mmcblk0p28
If your filesize is 4Gb , youre probably screwed

I have not enough storage to do that.

So, is there any way to restore this broken partition like recreating fs without using raw dump?

yes, create a tar.gz of the content.
Then you can untar that for restoring.

that would probably fit within 4Gb size

or, you could create the dd through ssh tunnelling to your PC

Or, you could connect USB networking and pipe it thru netcat, a lot faster than thru ssh via WLAN
