that site has a linux version available for both 32 and 64-bit cpu's:
this is whats inside the linux 64-bit tarball:
[schneidz@hyper cydiaimpactor]$ file *
Impactor:     ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.15, stripped
Impactor.dat: Zip archive data  ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, stripped broken symbolic link to `/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/'
what error do you get when you run the Impactor program ? what is it supposed to do ?

when i rooted my nexus i downloaded a custom recovery and ran
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
