Hello all, forgive me if this has been discussed in detail, but I've been reading this board for a little bit and have not seen too many people stress the importance of this. If you are going to jailbreak your ipod and enable SSH, you NEED to change your root password. This is not a thing you should do, but a thing that MUST be done. Once your ipod is cracked, and you open it up to the world via SSH, anyone within range of you with any sort of knowledege and tools could simply hack there way into your ipod. Once in, they could do things that you may not necessarily know about, such as, set up an email relay or spamming bot, where anytime your ipod is connected to the internet, it will be relaying or at least sending out spam to any and everywhere. You may think well the worst that could happen is that someone would just get in and erase all of my stuff, well that is not the worse, the worse is having mega battery drain and other complications that you cant explain or dont even know about. The ipod runs unix, and yes it is a stripped down version, but it is still very powerfull and capable of many many things. There are so many other possibilities that it is better to just protect yourself and change the damn password from 'alpine' to something else.. if you are in any publicly shared hotspot area, or in your house with an open wireless network, or on someone elses wireless network, and a savvy person sees you on an ipod touch, rest assured that there will be attempts to check to see if your sh*t is locked down, and if it isnt, I'm sure that they'll let you know another way. you can change your root password by installing the BSD subsystem and at the command prompt (after SSHing in or running Term-vt100), typing: #passwd then follow the instructions..
