You need to extract the getkernels script from the compressed file:

tar zxvf getkernels.tar.gz

Its outputs are kernel images. Not the partition images you mention. Those backup images must be created separately using dd.

already been done and posted here.
Thread includes step-by-step instructions.
Kernel and initramfs for a sampling of all devices attached to thread.

Since you don't mention a firmware version, I guess whichever one(s) I extracted for the K3 are what you want.

Both the kernel (embedded) .config and the initramfs are attached to that post.
Enjoy.
