It's just too much fun. I cant go to sleep yet, but I probably will :/

I forgot to mention, /etc/passwd doesnt exist. That would make it too easy, hehe

so is there any way to do this over USB so we can tether through ssh? Or do I need to carry a wireless router everywhere to log in?

I hope/wonder-if this will lead to lower level apps for Android, and how-to’s like:

1) how-to set up your Android Phone as a Wifi Router
2) how-to enable other bluetooth profiles (DUN, PAN, HID, BIP)
3) how-to set up symlinks for installing/storing your Android Market apps on your micro-SDHC card

And then apps that aren’t Dalvik based (ie. native binary based apps), and perhaps an apt-get like packaging system for native apps.

Hopefully someone can set up a better terminal emulator than pterminal (it’s great for what it is, but it’s not like running an OS X “Terminal”, nor an xterm … the terminal emulation code from ConnectBot would be ideal to use in place of pterminal’s interface).

However, this is rather outstanding news. Soon, perhaps, Android wont just be the most open phone platform, but it’ll be a genuine unix box in your pocket (that you can use directly as a unix box).

I wonder how long before there’s a Jabber server so you access the SMS/MMS capabilities from your laptop’s Jabber client … and a SIP server for the voice interface. Being able to do that via Wifi and/or USB would be absolutely lovely.

Great find!

I am a linux noob and I'm wondering, since you are already root, assuming there is a password, can't you just issue a command to reset the password?

There are no password commands whatsoever. It isnt using standard linux password management. Yes, I could simply use passwd thats built into busybox, but I might risk bricking the phone.

That's why we have to be careful with root.... anyone have sshd working yet?

I tried using passwd in busybox, got an error because of no /etc/passwd. So, why not make one? I can't so far tell that there are any passwords stored on the system anywhere...

I got sshd working, but I cant login because either we dont know the password, or there isnt a password and a password is required for ssh.

I got everything working in the emulator now since I dont want to chance bricking my phone. I will create a passwd file in a sec and see what happens. I doubt it will work.

One thing of interest I did find is the file /data/data/com.google.android.googleapps/databases/accounts.db. It contains your gmail username, encrypted password, and sha1 hash of the password.
