Get system image file
Download the newest V831 system image from Download website SDK_MaixII/release, unpack the downloaded file to get the .img file, which is the system image file.
If it slows to download, you can use MEGA: https://mega.nz/folder/5dJSWJDD#nQmiOeJsX6pEl2Q0cBrj2A

For V831 there is name rule for all files.
