Question root password doesn't work

I have a jailbroken Kindle Paperwhite. usbnetwork is working and I had shell access working via ssh over usb. I'm not sure what changed, but after I installed KUAL, skipstone, backdoor lock, the root password doesn't work.

I can't get access to the kindle now. The root password was 'mario', but it doesn't work now. I've tried the framework user with mario password, that doesn't work either.

Telnet (part of the USBnetworking package install) does not require a password over the USB cable.

Use that access to fix your problem.
