This is something that diffoscope should or could support — indeed, it
already does support a number of filesystem types. Would it be
possible for you to share your two .img files, or at the very least
provide the output of running "file" on them? Comparing bytes manually
is unlikely to be as efficient as getting diffoscope to address your
files in a more human-readable way.
