    Okay well my uncle forgot his OpenSSH password after I told him to change it, now I need it to change a file in his iPod. Is there anyway to change it back to default without restore? Or even find the password? He bought iFile, but I don't know what to look for.

    OK, have you used rock before? Cause if you haven't used it before, upon being launched the first time Rock I believe requests that you change your OpenSSH before further use. So I think that might work or not.

    Hope it helps.

    It only does that if your password is still alpine, so no it wouldn't work.
