This requires linux (Ubuntu) other wise you are out of luck.
And it requires linux knowledge.
You could rename it to system.img then loop mount it under linux.
Code:
sudo mkdir /mnt/sys
sudo mount -o loop system.img /mnt/sys
cd /mnt/sys
nautilus .
Run that in a linux shell.
Then unmount once you are done reading and writing the image.
Code:
sudo umount -R /mnt/sys
Then copy the system.img to a windows machine again and if you have a samsung phone you could flash the image with odin packed into a tar.
Or rename it back to system.ext4.img then flash it how you were going to.
No need to download the whole android sdk or put adb in your path anymore!
Just extract my tool and run the adbClientLaunch script.
