I said that to OP and he gave me links to his zImage and image.
I don't possess great knowledge concerning android, but I wan't to help if someone is stuck, give instructions, etc. But to do someone else's work, well...

I'm pretty sure that championswimmer's tool works, because I used it just a week ago to extract a kernel and it worked like a charm
However, Flashtool method is OK too

Nah, it doesn't. But we can use 7z e kernel.elf and then extract ramdisk from champ's kernel kitchen so it'll not break the symlinks.
