    Everything was great for the password change of the mobile. But when I followed your instructions for the login root, I started to have some real trouble. I type in login root. Enter alpine. And the terminal is asking for this iphone:~ root#. What am I supposed to put in there??
    And when I typed in Login mobile I now have a repeating message: -sh: fork: resource temporarily unavailable. I was successful in changing the first password but I can’t do the secondary protocol. Is there anything I am doing wrong? Or something I am missing?

      Once your in “iphone:~ root#” you got root! then type passwd
      Enter- alpine as the old password then enter new password each time it ask 2x.
      Hope this helps.
