    Yes, restore and do NOT instal BSD!!!
    Install Cydia, then fake bsd (for apps that need BSD) -> bingo.
    SSH password (and for that matter password changing!) suddenly works like a charm.
    ;-)

    I guessed to restore and i've allready done it.
    I'll uninstall BSD Subsystem and then use Cydia.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    That's because Cydia installs its own version of the BSD subsystem.

    See my post on a similar thread if you're interested in fixing the problem without installing Cydia.

    Hi. I just foolishly ran into the same problem, but was able to fix it without going through the jailbreak process again.

    My ipod touch (running 1.1.4) was constantly cycling through a 'reboot' with the edit home screen popping up. I say 'reboot' as it seems to be just springboard/summerboard which is recycling. The OS itself (and openssh) were still available.

    I downloaded Cydia as linked by sh1n1gam1 in this thread, replaced the broken passwd from the BSD subsystem with the binary from Cydia using winscp, reran passwd root changing the password back to alpine and presto; all was well again.

    In case your using winscp have it replace the file, and all the user rights will remain intact. In case things got screwed up, the user rights are:
    Code:
    # ls -al /usr/bin/passwd
    -rwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel  27108 Feb 27 23:50 /usr/bin/passwd

    How do i know if i have the "bad" version of passwd? Yesterday i restored to 1.1.4 and used iLiberty+ and installed both Cydia and BSD subsystem. Dont know if that replaced the files with the fake BSD frpm Cydia? Would like to change my password but am afraid i have the wrong version of passwd.
