Very nice to see how you investigated everything here. I have a question which I really need an answer for it.

Lets assume we have decompressed an .img file using “binwalk” and now we made some changes into some files inside the decompressed directory and now we want to create an image from what we just changed. How to achieve this?

How to decompress, make changes and then compress back into .img file as it was before.

Thanks in advance.
