Could you explain a bit more how would you edit shadow file if root password has been changed?
The reason for my question is that after I revert 'screensaver directory symlink hack' which is currently on my kindle and then update to 4.1.0 I won't be able to access system partition (with USBnet) if update for some reason will change the root password.
