Another method for resetting root password without plugins. - 30-August-2010, 01:57

Hello all,
I was asked by someone if there was a way to reset the root password and have discovered a way I have not seen documented.
This works for Dreamelite BH but may work with other images.


Press blue, then blue again, check that telnet is running.

Select Blackhole Cron Manager then press Red.

Set the time to execute a few minutes from the current time. ( 5 should suffice)

Enter 'passwd -d root' then press red to save.

Wait for the time you set to pass then telnet to your Dreambox's IP.

Use username root and a blank password.

Use the command 'passwd' to enter a new password.


I hope this helps someone.

CSB

It looks that it works only with specific images.
The general way is to download a plugin called "password switch" (search on google for it) and store in a shared folder of your pc. After that mount that folder in your dm system file and install manually that plugin. After running that plugin your root password changes to the default one "dreambox"

cheers!
