Thread: 1.1.3 password

  1. #1
    I've done the 1.1.2 -> 1.1.3 upgrade from the installer.
    I then installed the BSD subsystem and the term.
    When i try to open the term it asks for a password - but it's not the root password i had in 1.1.2 and it's not alpine.
    I can still log in from linux as i'm using a passwordless log in wid key pairs.

    So what is the password?
    And how can i change it if i can't use passwd?

    I managed to changed the password to alpine following this:

    But how can i sort out the passwd app, so i can change the root password?

    since Terminal runs as the mobile user, it expects the password for the mobile user.
    If you simply hit return, you'll get the login prompt, then you can enter root, hit return, and then enter the root password.

    What I still don't know, is how to properly change passwords under 1.1.3, because I read at various places that the passwd command is broken under 1.1.3, and I don't want to risk getting my iPhone into an inoperable state.

    Does anyone know how to properly change passwords on the iPhone under 1.1.3?

    i dont think you can change the password, i ssh changed my password and is screwed up my iPhone, it put springboard in endless reboot, the only fix was to jailbreak all overagain from the bottom up (1.1.1) but the password should be alpine out of the get go.

    Anyone got any news? Bugs the hell out of me that the entire iPhone hacking community knows my password, and I can't reliably change it.
