    Do that many people keep SSH on at all times? I keep mine off and only turn it on if I need to make changes. SSH seems to suck the battery dry if left on all the time.

    But why are comments #11 and #12 different? Why does one say "su root" and the other one just "su"?

    (I followed #11 and it worked fine)
    You got it buddy!

    Works on 'em all. I just SSH in with WinSCP and use Putty to change both the root and mobile passwords.

    When you are connected with WinSCP, just open Putty and it will first ask you a password - type in "alpine".

    Then type "passwd" then your chosen password twice.

    Then type "passwd mobile" and then, again, your chosen password twice. then "exit" to end the Putty session.

    Done.

    And, as has been mentioned, turn off SSH unless you need it - easiest via SBSettings from Big Boss.

    That's it

    after the instruction try to log in then enter password "alpine"
    the system will deny it.

    i think Apple is the one making this controversy
    remember they are now fully fighting against jailbreaking
    and this is one of it,damn it

    It's not rickrolling if it doesn't install a mod to play a video on the lockscreen.

    I changed my mobile password too. Never know what else they could come up with. Yeah root has more access but still. Better safe than sorry.

    You can only SSH if you've jailbroken your ipod/iphone. No need to worry

    whoa, a close one!

    well i'm in three's network anyway,
    but i already did changed the password and making sure to off it whenever
    altho its not really hacking, but still its scary
    i mean if they choose a spooky joker picture instead of rickroll, it will scare the **** out of me

    If you're not jailbroken then you don't have openSSH. So, you don't have to worry about it.

    The phones were scanned through 3G so even if he was jailbroken and had turned his WiFi off he would be found through his 3G connection. Best way to protect yourself is to have SBSettings installed. It comes with an SSH on/off button!
