    Default How to change the default password

    It's common knowledge that the default administrator user name is root and the default password is alpine. For better security, here is how to change the default password:

    Step 1
    Install MobileTerminal from Cydia and run it.
    It will be called Terminal on the springboard.



    Step 2
    Type su root and enter the default password alpine.
    You can also run cd to shorten the prompt.



    Step 3
    Run passwd then type in the new password (it will not be displayed).
    You will be prompted to retype the new password.



    Step 4
    To change the mobile password, type passwd mobile.
    You'll be prompted twice to enter the new password.



    Enjoy!
