    Default 1.1.2 root password

    Another finding: Apple removed the root password in 1.1.2.

    I do not think they truly believe that an effective measure. It's innocuous. It's only a risk if you run SSH and if you run SSH, it like that you will install a new one, so why bother removing it.

    So when installing SSH the new packaging will need to add a password to root, or copy from the "mobile" user, that is still "alpine".


    UPDATE:
    my bad. For some reason the file I've retrieved from the unencrypted image showed it, but uppon examining the file on 1.1.2 after an upgrade it has a password.

    Running "vi" on the mobile-terminal is hard! and there is no passwd. Better to replace the file during "jailbreak".

    root still has a password

    Code:
    % egrep "^root" Oktoberfest3B48b.UserBundle/private/etc/master.passwd 
    root:/smx7MYTQIi2M:0:0::0:0:System Administrator:/var/root:/bin/sh

    What are you talking about??? With SSH enabled, you can easily change the root and mobile password using pwd.
