Try this guys: You have to emulate Linux in windows using cygwin and that will unpack the system.img.ext4 files

Use the modified android kitchenHere and learn the way to install it in the original thread here

Run android kitchen and then choose the rom and voila! unpacked! Now I don't know if it will work with lollipop but you can give it a try

too complicated? for simpler ways try : this
