i know there are many threads on this, but I'm just exploring... is it possible to remove the root password? not change it, but remove. I have heard people talk about editing the "fstab" file in /private/etc, but there is a flaw in it. entering: su alpine will not work because "alpine" is not a command. if the root password were not there, then it would be possible to overclock the iphone/ipod touch... i think T_T. After I'm done, I'll resecure my ipod with a password though.
