I replaced sfk with new version (1.7.4) and it worked.
I have question about use of ">>NUL" in some batches. Why that's it (and not >NUL)?
ok if You want....
cpio and few other *.exe are just a part of cygwin - so if You replace *.dll to upgrade cygwin version - You also need to replace these files with newer.
mkbootimg.exe in v4 is compiled by Bruno, in previous versions - I do not remember where I got it. all of them - work fine - I don`t see any reasons why they don`t
as well as SFK - I guess all it`s versions would work - so there is no reason to update it. mkbootimg and sfk do not depend on cygwin.

ps - sorry - need to add - "null" NOT equal "nul" (!) - if NULL is written - where would be created file named "null". and "nul" - will redirect output to null device (wil not show text result of command execution)
