    Yes, there is a unix command in BSD Subsystem called "passwd" which changes the root pass.

    it doesn't work on 1.1.3/1.1.4 for some reason, however the Cydia version of it DOES. I recommend instlalling the cydia subsystem its much more stable. And a whole heck of a lot more powerful

    Not so much the app as the subsystem. but once a userfriendly source editor is integrated into the app, cydia will destroy installer.
