    Hey guys, i'm hoping there is some help for this. When I first got my ipod touch, I guess I must have changed the ssh root password on my touch...because i just tried sshing to it and it denys the password. Is there any way to reset it? I tried alpine and dottie.

    if you truly forgot the password, then you'll have to restore if you want to use SSH

    (love your username BTW)

    Default username is "root" and password is "alpine"

    Try uninstalling the ssh client and installing winscp. It should work. The SSH password is set with the ssh client on the computer not the touch.
