    Default [1.1.3] Change SSH password? (passwd method breaks SpringBoard)

    I tried searching but couldn't find anything...

    How do we go about changing our root password (for logging in via SSH and such) to something other than "alpine" on firmware version 1.1.3?

    Apparently the method using the 'passwd' binary in the BSD Subsystem now breaks SpringBoard. Is there another way to do this? I kinda recall a method where you'd encrypt the password yourself, and put that right into the password file or something, but I'm not sure if that would work, and I can't find the guide anymore anyway.

    Any help?

    You can use a crypt hash generator to generate a new password hash and edit the /etc/master.passwd with 'vi'.

    http://javascript.internet.com/passw...ncryption.html

    The "salt" for the password is the first 2 characters, it was '/s' for the mobile password.

    I suggest changing the mobile user's account password then checking to see if is correct, then change root's password.

    Whatever you do, DO NOT use passwd cmd in terminal (as you will be notified when installing BSD subsystem) It messes something up w com center that cannot be fixed.

    As an FYI I jailbroke using Nate's release the day he released it, and before reading any password changing warnings. Did it before updating to the lastest BSD subsystem too.

    Anyway I changed both root and alpine without issue, using passwd (passwd root, passwd mobile).


    Maybe this only applies to the dev team jb?
