    it may not show that you're typing, (no stars etc) but if you type in alpine then hurt return, the command lines keep coming.

    Even though I have SSH off in SBSettings, I installed MobileTerminal anyway, but it keeps crashing before I get a prompt. I've read other places that the app has not been updated in a while and has problems on 3.1.2. True?

    For people a little unsure on if you have OpenSSH installed or not - just open up your SBSettings. By default, there is a toggle for OpenSSH, if the toggle isn't present, you don't have it.

    If you don't have SBSettings - Open Cydia - Click on "Manage" - Click on "Packages" and scroll through the list to see if you see OpenSSH.

    If you are using Rock - Open Rock - Click on "Manage" - Scroll down the page until you get to "Manage Other Installed Packages." It should appear in this list if you put it on your phone.

    If you do have it on your phone - easiest thing to do is install SBSettings and use the toggle to turn it OFF unless you are on a network that you implicitly trust & you really have a need to use it. Otherwise, leave it off.

    As others have said, chances are, if you have no idea what OpenSSH is, you don't have it on your phone.

    Changed password. Thanks for the steps!

    Question: when I pwn my 3GS to 3.1.2 (I'm still on 3.0), do I need to change the password again?

    The instructions are also on Cydia front page under SSH or logging into your phone (link at the bottom of these instructions for changing your password.) These instructions recommend changing the password for both user root and mobile.

    OpenSSH allows you to log onto your phone; change or delete just about anything -- seems obvious to me that unless you change your password, this is a rather obvious security risk,

    Just turn SSH off via sbsettings. You don't want to leave it on anyway, cause it just wastes your battery. Only turn SSH on when you are going to connect to your phone to do something

    Everybody who has changed the "root" password, must change the "mobile" password also, ( please try open ssh winSCP, using user name : mobile (not root) and type password alpine ) If you still can get into ssh, so you must change the mobile password also.....
    The right one is here....

    Change the “root” password:
    The easy way to change the root password is
    install mobile terminal from Cydia
    after finish install press home button to go back to Home screen
    look for mobile terminal then open
    type "su" (without quote)press return
    then password "alpine" (without quote)press return
    now you are logging as root
    type "passwd" (without quote)press return
    type your new password/press return
    retype your new password/press return
    Exit out.
    Change the “mobile”password:
    Open mobile terminal
    type "passwd" (without quote)press return
    type old password: alpine
    type your new password/press return
    retype your new password/press return

    That's it

    after the instruction try to log in on winSCP then enter password "alpine"
    the system will deny it, just type your new password.
    hope it help. If help hit thanks button please.


    Good bye hackers....

    As long as your iphone/ipod is jailbroken, you need to change both your ROOT and MOBILE Passwords’ in order to be completely safe from these nasties!

    To change your Root Password:

    A: Go to Cydia, click search and install MobileTerminal app your iPhone/ipod. Once you have successfully installed MobileTerminal, Reboot your device.

    B: Now start MobileTerminal app and type in:
    ‘login’ (without quotes) and then press enter.

    C: Now type ‘root’ (without quotes) as your login.

    D: Once you have logged in as root, type ‘passwd’ command (without quotes) and ‘alpine’ (without quotes) as your current root password, and press enter.

    E: You will now be prompted to enter a new password twice (a mixture of letters, alphabets and symbols usually makes a stronger password…just make sure you can easily remember it…)!

    Congratulations! Your Root password has now been changed.

    To change your Mobile Password

    A: Still in MobileTerminal app, type in the following command:
    passwd

    B: You’ll be asked for your password, which should be ‘alpine’ (without the quotes),

    C: Next, you’ll have to enter a new one of your choice (twice…to confirm). See step ‘E’ above.

    Once you have done the above, you can go to sleep!!

    Always remember to turn SSH off (in SBsettings) when not needed, and whenever a reboot is done.

    This is such an easy fix... the fact that so many people are being affected by this is really just funny... Saurik told us to change our PW back in the olden days when SSH became available!
    This is getting a lil' ridiculous...

    Someone should come up with a tweak that automatically turns ssh off after a respring and/or a set usage time. I always forget that it's left on
