    Hi guys,

    I got a JB'ed iPAd 2 all on 5.11. via Absynthe, and i purchased iSSH from the iTunes store to change the root password, Today i came across a few forum topics about changing passwords and they said changing your "su root" password is better then just "root", so i decided to do this but when i typed alpine or even my own password i was DENIED ACCESS, i also tried it on a friends iPhone from school who changed her password and she was also denied access, is this normal?

    You can't use iSSH (an App Store app) to change the default password on the iPad. Changing the password is something you can only do with a jail break tweak such as Mobile Terminal (which you get from Cydia, the jail breaker's app store) or by using an SSH client to access the iPad - which is only doable because the iPad is jail broken.

    People who are not jail broken cannot change their default passwords with this app, either. Apple would never had allowed this app into their store if you could...

    Hope this clarifies.
