    What is the root password for N900 on RDA?

    I want to get root privileges in N900 X terminal with "sudo su" command. Unfortunately appear request for password to root account. What is it? I tried blank password and "forumnokia" (the same as for WLAN network), but they are not correct.

    This page contains information about Maemo default password for root. Have you tried that?

    You won't need a password if you follow these steps:

    rootsh

    Note: As rootsh is the simplest option, and does not require a desktop computer or running additional services, it is the recommended method for gaining root access.
    rootsh is available in Extras, and can be installed from the Application manager if you have Extras enabled.
    Then, from the shell, run sudo gainroot (or root for short). This will give you a root shell.
