[OpenTRV-dev] squashfs

The IMG file from OpenCMS will be a disk image, not a file system. It will
contain a partition table, probably a FAT partition for the Pi to boot
from and one or more Linux partitions mounted at run time, all rolled into
a single file. I'm not familiar with BerryBoot, but this is clearly not
what it is expecting. I don't see a way to directly convert what you have
to squashfs since squashfs is a file system, and what you have in your IMG
file is a collection of file systems on a disk image.

I'm also inclined to ask what's wrong with the OpenCMS disk image. It
should do what you want out of the box so why not focus on why that
doesn't boot?
