IMHO, suggesting remote logins to fix the password problem is missing the point. If you don't have a password, how the heck can you log in with anything. But maybe I need to be corrected on this point.
I am not gonna change my root password just yet.

I'm having the same problem. I tried to download SUID lib fix off installer but i get and Error saying "Main Script execution failed".If my 2 cents helped ya, Thank me by hitting the Thanks Button!

I had the main script execution failure, uninstalled PHP from Conceited Software, restarted, tried again and it worked.
This thread contains instructions for fixing this problem. Or, you can look at my blog (shameless plug: http://iphoneturns.blogspot.com) under
which describes the whole process in hideous detail.

Tap Sources -> edit -> add source http://i.unlock.no and refresh
Tap install -> unlocking tools -> Ziphone Ibrickr fix.
Then iNdependence or iBrickr should recognize your iphone, and you can change password for any account.

I bought recently my iphone and used ziphone. After that I found that FW is 1.1.4. Now I am trying to change the file or folder permission using squid, Mobile finder. I am not able to change that. root/alpine is working through filezilla but not able to login through vterminal. when ever i click on the program it takes me to black prompt for password. When I put alpine it says incorrect password. after running ziphone I used iliberty jailbreak as well. Please suggest me how to change the file permission.

just use SSH to change password, this happened to me and I set it to alpine and rebooted, then it worked like a charm.

How to reset the password through SSH. First I need to login. Can you please tell me in detail how to do that?

Go into Terminal.
cd to your home directory/.ssh
Then try to connect again using alpine as your password - works like a charm.

I had same problem with my iphone. I installed cydia package and it resolved the issue. Now, i am able to login as root with "alpine" password.

i think that a lot of people that had this problem used Ziphone to jailbreak.. thats what i did, and im having this problem... it sucks... ... now i have to do a full restore and will jailbreak using ipwned.... we will see what happens.. unfortunately i dont have time to do this today.. will have to wait till tomorrow..

I had this problem myself and I looked at every webpage possible I was just convincing myself to restore(losing all my pkgs) when i decided to give it one more go. All i did was put in my regular itunes password and it worked! i use this pass for everything though so im not sure if its itunes. everybody just try your regular passwords not alpine or dottie

Thanks sooooo much salokineragon. You are THE BEST!!!!!!!!
I am just a beginner when it comes to the technical side of stuff and had searched for an easy way to login using winSCP when the password alpine or dottie wasn't working. Everything that I came across seemed hard or the steps were unclear. I did what you suggested and used my iTunes password, and it worked!
