Hey,

I like to extract the Samsung firmware from S4, Note 3, ... and I need your help.

So I've downloaded the firmware from Sammobile and like to extract the system.img.ext4 file, but it's like encrypted and I can't extract it

P.s I haven't got an problem with Linux

try out archikitchen http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2597220
with it you can create a flashable zip from the firmware files and from the zip you can extract everything you want.

You can also try using the magic ISO, it can also help you in extracting the .img file ! try using it and see if that works out for you !
