    I've never left the default password in place (until 1.1.3 jb). I don't leave SSH enabled all of the time either.

    When DLing BSD it specifically warns against changing the password (with passwd) or else you will face a constantly rebooting springboard.

    Now I have to rely on disabling SSH. The problem with that is I have no idea when a problem might surface and if SSH isn't on my only option is restore, or try to get by with iBrickr.

    So I use BossPrefs to disable SSH. HOWEVER, I turned on the option to have SSH enabled after a reboot. This means I can turn SSH back on just by rebooting my iPhone. The drawback is that I have to remember to disable it when rebooting for another reason.

    SSH has bailed me out many times prior to 1.1.3 (usually due to M68AP.plist). I have already needed it once under 1.1.3 too (yep, the rebooting springboard issue--apparently caused by more than just using passwd).


    There are other ways to change the password other than passwd, but I just haven't gotten around to doing it yet.

    Putz! Tinha que ser coisa de brasileiro mesmo. Hahahaha.

    Já querendo avacalhar com o iPhone do próximo.

    Mas sim, eu entendo o que você quis dizer, deco. Aqui no Brasil tem que ter cuidado mesmo! Hahaha.

    Abraço.

    sucks.

    TurboSIM-like methods? No way.

    - Unlocked Week 47 1.1.3 iPhone, baseband 04.04.05_G.

    I'm not here to find help. I'm here to help others and give back what I've learned from Hackint0sh.

    Don't just change the password. The passwd command is broken (at least I know it is in 1.1.3)

    But if you need ssh you might like the other stuff from the Cydia - See: here for more info.

    Better solution imo is to keep ssh in case something goes wrong,so that u will be able to log in your iphone via wifi and install bossprefs to be able to disable ssh when not needed.
    How do you enable SSH if something has gone wrong, since presumably you are unable to get to bosstools?

    If you have Perl installed:
    perl -e 'print crypt("alpine", "/s") . "\n"'
    This should generate the original passord.
    Of course, you should replace "alpine" with your password and "/s" with your salt (two caracters, eg: GH)
    Alternatively, you can use this site: hxxp://iphone.simbunch.com/crypt.php (but I wouldn't trust ANYONE to generate my password).

    when you got a working phone, what is the need for it anyway?
    To mod in more elaborate ways than just installing applications from repositories? Anyway I toggle it off with Services.app.
