    I've tried replacing the chmod file in /bin and respringing but that didn't work. Any ideas please?

    I can SSH in with root and alpine, but want to change alpine.

    Download mobile terminal from cyida then -

    1) Type in
    Code:
    su root
    It will ask for the current pass.

    2) Type in
    Code:
    passwd
    Type in the new password twice

    3) Type in
    Code:
    passwd mobile
    Type in the new password twice

    o.o I have no clue then. My method worked for me.

    I noticed that too. I dont think its against the rules to have 2 accounts...

    But I don't think that's wrong... Just noticed it. Why would someone want 2 accounts?? Or is it a coincidence??

    EDIT: Now it's gone. I think it was to cover something up. Whatever...

    The first part works doing su root then alpine, but when I type in passwd again it says Killed. Is there a file I need to change permissions on?
