I wonder how to extract kernel1 from sysupgrade file ?
I need it for uboot booting to restore firmware due to i bricked my router and other restore options doesn't working.
Which device? If NAND-based, it is likely a tar archive. If not, a utility like
binwalk is useful.
xiaomi mi wifi mini. it has spi flash
i tried binwalk but crc error occurred at boot time.

dd to extract - it appears you're using the correct software.
but it give me crc error while booting.
binwalk typically has an “extract” option
but i don't know where to find uImage ?
U-boot showing "CRC Error-- using default environment" is harmless and it doesn't have anything to do with the firmware that is flashed.
It seems that the USB recovery to factory should be pretty bombproof unless you've replaced the bootloader. If you have replaced the bootloader with one that is not locked, just write the OpenWrt squashfs-sysupgrade directly to flash into the OS1 partition.
