    Download Putty to SSH into it, and then type the command:

    passwd

    It will then ask for your new password.

    There is a way to change it, it involve modifying the passwd file. I can't find the link anymore but there is a website which generate the password you want and convert it to that language.

    All you go to do is copy and paste and replace the passwd file.

    The link was used to be in http://www.hacktheiphone.com/

    You need to have the BSD Subsystem installed via Install.app, look under the System section and then the passwd command will work via putty or via mobile terminal from your iphone.
