How can I change my SSH password on my JB 2.0 Touch?
I simply SSH'd into my iPod via OS X terminal and after login I used the "passwd" command to change it.
using passwd will probably force you to restore (it did on 1.1.4)
dunno about that, but it worked fine here.
2.0 JB via PWNAGE, then loaded OpenSSH via Cydia.
Of course it is possible. It was not possible for the installer. It works perfectly with Cydia.
I don't know how exactly you can change it on a Windows Computer but on a mac just open "Terminal"
then enter these commands
Now you're logged in.
type new password twice
You can also change your password with the mobile terminal
The only difference is that you change the login to root.
now just do the same like above after "Now you're logged in"
I used passwd to change mine and have had no problems at all.
that was because of BSD Subsystems, Cydia doesn't use that, so it that doesn't have that problem.
You can download mobileterminal from cydia and change the password in there.
