    Mobile Terminal 426 works fine on my 4.3.3 iPad 64G 3G with Redsn0w JB albeit with a small font. It is a .deb file you can find with google. You must manually install it, the easiest way is to deposit in /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall (you may have to create the last 2 directories) and reboot.

    If you go to Cydia, on the main page (left column), there is a box titled "Root Password How-To." When you select that, the second item down is a box titled "Mobile Terminal Package." Click on that and you'll get the normal Cydia options to download it (free).

    Or, at least that's how I got Mobile Terminal on my iPad with iOS 4.2.1. It does say that it's the latest version (for iOS 4 to 4.3.1). Works on my iPad...

    P.S. Oh, and it wouldn't hurt to also change your mobile password on the iPad as well as the root.

    But it says it doesn't work! And it just crashes on my iPad. :(
    Is there a different terminal?

    I suggest installing openSSH and then SSH into it with putty to change the password.. that's what I did with my iPhone 4 as I noticed mobile terminal didn't work on iOS 4

    iSSH is a great App store app for SSHing (very professional IMHO).

    But +1 for putty. Just use it from your desktop. Much more convenient than getting Mobile Terminal to work if you are the sort of user who is not comfortable with sourcing and installing deb files yet...

    Well I am comfortable with .deb files. Found terminal 426 on google and put it in the auto install folder and rebooted. Than did the instructions on Cydia and it worked.

    OpenSSH is the enabler, not the client to allow the OP to actually change his password... He is looking for a SSH client, such as mobile terminal, iSSH, putty, etc...
