I've already tried to bundle an online windows customized instance into AMI but I don't know how to do the same with a Linux instance.

as opposed to windows AMIs that can be bundled from the EC2 console, to bundle a linux AMI you need to download, install and run the set of AMI tools on your linux server.
If you run an instance that was spawned from Amazon AMI, then all tools already exist on the server.
