Quite an odd question, but to find where you have the inode tables, you can run:
sudo dumpe2fs /dev/<device> | fgrep 'Inode table'
I’m not sure what it is you want to read, but you can do a hexdump of the raw data at the block where the inodes resides:
sudo dd if=/dev/<device> ibs=4096 skip=<inode block> count=1 | hexdump
You’ll have to replace the <device> in the above examples and the <inode block> with the block offset to the inode table you want to look at that dumpe2fs returned.
Otherwise, "ls" is a more user friendly command for looking at inodes ;-)
