    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.

    Hi!

    At first I have to say sorry about my behaviour. I was googling for hours, visiting tons of android forums concerning the topic, knowing it has to be possible. This was the last stop of my desperate trip towards the solution and a huge anger overcame my politeness. I think everybody has committed such a fault at least once on a time. Again, I am really sorry, I did not want insult anyone.
    Anyway,
    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
    geza@mine.hu

    Best regards,
    Géza

    PS: I hope this knowledge is not in fact worthless for the community...
