    Default BSD password issue fix
    Is there a fix for this issue. I believe when I downloaded this program it told me to use password because it would cause a problem. I am assuming this is the screen password that you can set in settings. Am I correct and is there a fix?

    Thanks.

    It's referring to the passwd command in BSD, which is used among other things, to change the root password. This currently isn't working in 1.1.3

    I used passwd to change the password 1.1.3 then copied the original file /etc/passwd back to the phone and it worked ssh has a different password and the springboard doesn't crash

    I installed in the 'SUID Lib Fix' under Tweaks 1.1.3 in installer and it works perfectly.

    Meaning you didn't have to do the above? I also installed SUID and I haven't noticed any change. I still can't use root.
