    Default *nix root access

    maybe i have a misunderstand of *nix accounts...

    i've setup ssh and changed the root/mobile passwords.

    however, when i run mobileterminal, i'm logged in as root without having to type the password. how does that work?

    thanks, matt

    As the phone is already turned on, you are already "logged on", so to speak. Mobileterminal is just accessing the console.

    If you SSH to it, you'll have to login.
