    Question anyone - if I change the Mobile and the Root PW to the same thing - will it be an issue?

    My Assumption is No_
    It's only an issue if someone figures out what the password for mobile is and tries it for root. Unless the password you choose is ridiculous secure (8+ characters, alphanumeric, non-standard characters, etc), its probably a bad idea. I'd just make two very secure passwords.

    Default Reset root password
    I sent my phone into apple for work and forgot to reset the password to alpine? Before I sent it in, I backed it up, and then removed the visible traces of jailbreak (make it mine, status bar mods, etc...) and then did a wipe using "Erase All Conent and Settings." Does wiping the phone reset the password back to alpine? Will apple look at that when servicing my phone? Thanks!

    How many people have changed both root and mobile's password? Does it cause any side effect? PS. I have 3GS 3.1.2

    Default SSH password reset
    Would some help me.

    I tried using Terminal
    Put is "Su Root"
    then it ask for password
    Put in alpine
    It said incorrect password. Isn't alpine the generic password???
    I noticed my mobile has a "$" behind it eg. mobile$
    Where can I find the right password?

    I have read somewhere that the password was changed by the malware.

    Password recovery for the latest iPhone worm | Paul Ducklin's blog

    Maybe this would help.

    I effectively changed password via MobileTerminal. I verified this in Mobile Terminal. I cannot access iPhone via SSH now. I am using Fetch on a Mac and all my settings are correct. Any suggestions?
