A boot image is a type of disc image that is used to boot an Android system. A boot image typically contains a boot loader. For rooting purposes, you can copy or move the boot.img file from payload_output to your phone. If you are using Android 11, then it might be possible that you do not need to perform these steps because all the contents in the Android 11 Rom are pre-extracted, so you do need to extract the payload.bin specifically.
