bump...

Same for me. I've been struggling for 3 days with no luck. Everything goes well until "telnet {my moto x ip} 2222" in Impactor. "Link Failed file exists"

Someone help!

Are you using the cydia impactor correctly? I had this issue because i was trying to use the "telnet {ip} 2222" command in the impactor instead of the command prompt. to do it correctly:

open the impactor
use the drop down menu on the impactor, choose "# start telnetd as system on port 2222"
Hit start
when that has completed, Open up a new command prompt window and type telnet {ip} 2222"
you should now be connected

Let me know if this helped!

Unlock your phone or disable the key guard before starting Impactor

I fell your pain. I struggled with the same error. When I figured it out I felt like an idiot. After you open the telnet session in Cydia Impactor, move over to the command prompt to run "telnet {device ip} 2222". I assume you attempted to run this in Cydia Impactor as well.

A buddy just showed me the solution... You were exactly correct. Also, for anyone else in the same situation, also ensure that telnet is activated in windows.

CONTROL PANEL -> PROGRAMS AND FEATURES -> TURN WINDOWS FEATURES ON OR OFF -> SCROLL DOWN AND CHECK THE TELNET CLIENT BOX

Hopefully that helps someone out there. Happy rooting!

Mine was active, but its not longer working. I was able to root earlier but its not working now stating that the file exists already. and when I try using puttytel it tells me that:

~ $ dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/RockMyMoto.jar RockMyMoto
RockMyMoto 1.0

You can buy an unlock code again for the bootloader. I'd get on it quick tho, before it ends again.

Then you can root easily, without all the exploits.
