everytime i start the terminal application installed with installer.app on my iphone i am prompted for a password. i tried the standard passwords for root and mobile with no luck. no one else i spoke with seems to be prompted for this though. how can i get past this?

I'm assuming you want to use SSH on the iPhone?

What firmware are you running? For 1.1.1 the default password should be dottie.

Have you tried the password for the computer that the iPhone is synced with?

i am running firmware 1.1.4. i can ssh into the iphone properly but i cannot use the term-vt100 because of this password issue.

i just tried my macbook password (which is what i sync my iphone with) with no luck either.

I'm having the same problem. Did you find out what was wrong? And did you happen to use the PwnageTool? If so I think that might have have something to do with it.

You need to use the default iPhone firmware passwords, not your macbook password:

root
alpine

If those don't work, then is it possible that you've changed the password?
