Hello
I've managed to forget the SU password, after changing it from the default one... Is there any way to reset it? or alternatively reflash the memory? and if so, how?
Thank you!

are you booting of the nand or an external media?

From an external media you could always mount it an another PC and then follow that solution

NAND I'd guess. Unfortunately I don't have much experience of the device (Guruplug) bought it bout a year ago, used it for a small project and forgot about it. Now I'd like to use it for another project, but can't remember the password... Sad There's nothing needed to keep on the device, so it's ok to make a clean install, if possible...

did you actually changed the root password at the time?

if not try nosoup4u as it is the default root password for these box

I am not quite sure how to access the nand from the boot prompt but it must be possible

I already tried "nosoup4u" and was unable to access the device, so I guess I changed it... Tongue
Is it possible to boot with a usb memory stick and somehow reflash the NAND?
