Thread: superuser on MobileTerminal

  1. #1
    Default superuser on MobileTerminal
    I try to use MobileTerminal on my 2G 3.0 and a error message apears:
    "requested operation requires superuser privilege"
    someone can help me?

    Before doing anything within terminal, you must login as superuser

    1. Open terminal
    2. Type "su" (without the quotes), press return
    3. Type your root password (by default is "alpine"), press return
    4. Now your command should work!

    BTW: The default 'alpine' superuser password can be changed for security purposes -- if you want.

    1. su (enter 'alpine' -- default)
    2. passwd (displays changing password for root)
    3. enter you new password TWICE (when requested - not displayed).
    4. done.
    5. REMEMBER it the default no longer works
