Re: [Live with YUMI] Update ISO but keep same Casper-rw file ?

I suppose that YUMI does not make vmlinuz and initrd files, so you need to copy and test these files from mint.iso. You can use many different ones, when you rename them and set the correct path to the YUMI's boot configuration. An example: vmlinuz.19.1 vmlinuz initrd.19.1.img initrd.img , etc.
