My guess is that the admin account works right away.
My experience with a similar device, the Leedo w3000p is that the root password
is "20080826". Can someone please confirm that this works on the ravpower as well?
I am quite happy with the w3000p. Now with the root capability it is easy to
hack the device and add new functionality.
Let me reply to myself since nobody else seems to be taking notice of this post:
I unraveled the Ravpower WD01 firmware and was able to compare the /etc/passwd file with
the one from my Leedo Wifidisk Wi-Data W3000PH USB 2.5 enclosure, and yes, the root (and admin)
passwords are indeed the same! I strongly believe that both hardwares are very similar (same SoC RT5350
processor, same 32MB RAM, same 8MB flash).
I rooted my device and installed ipkg and dropbear for ssh. I use an ext2 partition on my disk mounted
under /opt. Let me know if anyone wants more details...
All the best
