How to rebuild XR300 squashfs

I now want to expand the functionality of my firmware, so I need to change the files inside the firmware filesystem, I use the official tool mksquashfs, but the generated squashfs file is not the same as the squashfs file generated directly with binwalk

 

the squashfs from binwalk and the squashfs from tools:

You have posted your message in the section of this community given over to Nighthawk WiFi Routers. (This is easily done, given Netgear's impenetrable community structure.)

To save you wasting your time, you might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers about your hardware, in the appropriate section for your device. That's probably here:

I will ask the Netgear moderator to move your message.

Just another user.

   I know nothing, but the first difference which I see is in the
modification_time, which would not amaze me.

   Plenty of other insignificant differences might be possible, too.
