I'm currently on Macbook Air with OS X 10.8.2 today. Regarding to this article from Apple, my root account is currently disabled. So, from a friend's suggestion, I just tried... Code: sudo su on my terminal. I know it's weird. The command seems unnecessarily redundant, but it grants me access to root right away. Is this normal? Could you guys please try running this command on your shell for me? ---------- Also, it didn't even ask for my admin password.
