Noobkiller first and foremost welcome to the forums. Not sure where you get off calling people noobs when you show up in a forum and resurrect a dead three year old thread to drop worthless knowledge. There is no way to set a root password on Android. Go away troll.

Again, I am really sorry, I did not want insult anyone.
I did it on the weekend. I compiled the PAM library, openssh server, and other neccessary tools gathered from Gentoo Linux and installed them on my android system. After configuration (and a bit of magic, of course :) ), both publickey and keyboard-interactive authentication was being supported on my device (Galaxy S) through ssh. Additionally, the good ol' /bin/login is available, that is, password authentication is also possible directly on the phone.
If somebody feels this achievement of mine usable, I gladly share the binaries or the "androidized" source codes. Please contact me on the e-mail address
PS: I hope this knowledge is not in fact worthless for the community...
As your asking i think yoou are taking a big risk because if u put password for ur root then it may led you to losse few of your apps
