Thread: Ffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu - forgot my SSH password!

  1. #1
    Angry Ffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu - forgot my SSH password!
    I remember changing it from arctic so my iPod would be more secure...

    But I tried to SSH in to it today and I cannot for the life of me remember the password!

    I tried the 'passwd' command from terminal on the iPod, but it needs the old password in order to change the current password.

    Help, how can I fix this?

    u have ifile rite.. if u dont download it then do this:


    )When in iFile go to Private/etc/master.password (don't press master.password.old)
    8)Open it with text viewer
    9)Press edit
    10)on the top it says

    *user database
    *
    *this file is the authorization user database.
    ***
    nobody bla bla bla
    User:/var/empty bla bla bla
    root:/ (here you have to write smx7MYTQLI2M)

    so you have it like this:
    root:/smx7MYTQLI2M:0:0::0:0:0:system

    then click save

    11)After that Respring your beloved iPhone
    12)And try again to login with username SU ans password alpine

    I needed to reset my root user password back to alpine and this post was my starting point. Although I found the letters didn't work. Another post gave the following which worked for me:

    smx7MYTQIi2M

    I'm on iOS6.1 FYI
