I swear I changed my iPad root password using Cyberduck but I can't remember how to save my life.

Can I change my iPhone 4 Root password using Cyberduck? Mobile Terminal is not yet supporting iOs 4.X


Thanks!

Thanks to both of you. On my way to work I realized that I must have SSHed to the iPad and then just used Mac Terminal.

Thanks again, will check into it when I get home :)
Okay I am apparently going to still need some help here.

Once I use Cyerbduck to SSH to the phone-how do I use Mac Terminal with the Cyberduck?

Sorry-been a while since I have had to do this without the benefit of Mobile Terminal :)

What you wanna do is to put your phone on your Wifi network and enable OpenSSH

Open Terminal from OSX

Type:
ssh root@ipaddress
of course changing the IP address to the real IP of the phone on Wifi.

login with password "alpine" (without quotation mark).

Once you're in, type "passwd" without the quotation mark. Type in your new password twice and voila!

Also don't forget about mobile password. "login mobile" then change it from default "alpine."

OpenSSH + iSSH = MobileTerminal for iP4

OpenSSH from Cydia

iSSH from iTunes

Okay getting this error when trying to SSH:

SSH into it first with cyberduck and it will ask you to authorize click always and then Open Terminal

enter command: ssh root@ipaddress

login in with credentials

once in type 'passwd'

type in your new password twice

Voila you are done!

Repeat

enter command: ssh mobile@ipaddress

login in with credentials

once in type 'passwd'

type in your new password twice

Voila you are done!

Add correct host key in /Users/enigmafan420/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
Easiest method: delete this file. This is a bit heavy-handed as it will delete all known hosts that you have ssh'd to. You will have to OK them again the first time you connect.

A more surgical approach is to edit that file in a text editor (one that will not add or change line feeds). Remove the iPhone's entry in the file--you should be able to recognize it by hostname or ip address. It will be a long alphanumeric string.
