Neither of those.

You basically have the option to decide between:

  • combined-ext4.img.gz
  • combined-squashfs.img.gz

Unless you have specific reasons to prefer the ext4 variant, the squashfs one would be recommended, as it allows factory resetting/ recovery (the ext4 image is completely writable, if you break it, it stays broken without a failsafe mode).

The rootfs images are just that, the split out rootfs (without kernel or bootloader), while there are use-cases for these, they're not usable as-is.
