I have the same problem

What is the fdisk command for changing the hidden attribute on a partition.
I have to change type 1c to 0c - WITHOUT touching data on any other partition on the disk.And write the partition table also I guess.
What is the fdisk command for that ? (cfdisk doesn't seem able to do it)
