    I just jailbroke my ipod touch 2g and wanted to ssh my ipod. However the two passwords in the guide (alpine and dottie) dont work. Does anyone either know or can tell me how to get the password?

    I know there have been guides but these are old and may be outdated by now.

    edit:
    never mind, I just had a dodgy guide which was outdated.

    alpine worked for me in terminal, but not for SSH... What password did you use?

    alpine worked for ssh for root access too. If you look at the /etc/master.passwd file, the passwords for the mobile and root user are the same. I'm not sure if this is how the firmware shipped but i haven't changed it and i doubt pwnage tool did either.
