    The root password for 1.1.3 is 'alpine', and it can't be changed.

    Do you have SSH installed? ('OpenSSH' in Installer)

    I have this same problem. OpenSSH is installed but the iPhone won't accept the password :(

    Using iJailbreak on Leopard.

    Also is there a fix for YouTube not working?

    Are you trying to connect via SFTP over port 22?

    Its remotely possible to have changed the password.

    scp root@xxx.xxx.xx.xx 'enter'
    passwd 'enter'
    Enter twice and voila!

    I know that it is NOT recommended with SUmmerboard in 1.1.3

    Obviously this is the case as it IS 'alpine'

    See if you have something called

    "services"

    or something you don't know what it does. The ones mentioned above have a switch to turn on / off SSH that is already installed.

    Just had the same problem with a 1.1.3.

    Was able to SFTP. Then turned iPhone off. Sit for a day.

    Had "Permission Denied" through TRANSMIT, even though the password wasn't changed.

    Did a few things, including uninstalling and reinstalling openSSH, but still doesn't work with transmit.

    Tried with CYBERDUCK, and it works. Bizarre.
