Using zImage from /arch/arm/boot in EasyInstaller


I am building a kernel from source and wanted to make sure I could copy zImage from /arch/arm/boot to Colibri-iMX7-eMMC_LXDE-Image.bootfs in the TEZI image and successfully boot the module prior to making changes. Is the zImage in arch/arm/boot a compressed image and does anything need to be done prior to copying it to .bootfs? I did review Build U-Boot and Linux Kernel from Source Code where the instructions are to just copy zImage to bootfs.

Thank you.

No, it’s just a regular zImage, nothing else.
