    Is there a new default password for ssh? Alpine and my custom password from 4.1 wont work, and i have no way to get into my phone.

    any ideas?

    Mine was the usual after upgrading,

    Username - root
    Password - alpine

    Obviously make sure you are not using CAPS, if not maybe try a restore.

    Your old password that you set on 4.1 will not work when you restore to 4.2.1
    It should be back to default.

    It's still alpine. No capital 'a'

    I'm sorry, did I not mention anything about 'CAPS'? :eek:

    i was not using caps, figured out my problem though...

    i was typing in 'ssh ipAddress' instead of 'ssh root@ipAddress'
