    I remember changing it from arctic so my iPod would be more secure...

    But I tried to SSH in to it today and I cannot for the life of me remember the password!

    I tried the 'passwd' command from terminal on the iPod, but it needs the old password in order to change the current password.

    Help, how can I fix this?
