    I need to change my password because i can't log-in with ssh anymore. Think that's because the master.passwd file is empty. So i want to change my password with mobile terminal to fix that problem (I assume it rewrites the master.passwd file). But when i start mobile terminal i get this message:

    :no such file or directory
    [Process completed]

    Mobile Terminal completely freezes then.
    Can anyone help me?

    Type these commands in terminal.

    su root

    alpine

    apt-get remove system-cmds

    apt-get install system-cmds

    passwd


    Type in the stuff it prompts you for, and change the password.

    but i can't type a thing in terminal, because of that error message

    Please Register or Log in to view images

    no such file or directory
    [Process completed])

    At least i can touch the letters, but nothing shows on the screen.

    Hmm.... uninstall and reinstall MobileTerminal from Cydia, and try passwd again.

    Tried that before, but doesn't change a thing.
