Paperwhite 2 usbnet asks for root password

Hi, guys, can't ssh into my pw2 because it keeps asking for root password and I can't 'guess' it.
I have downgraded firmware to 5.4.3.2
jailbreak v.1.10N-2
usbnet v. 0.16

what could be wrong? is there any newer usbnet version somewhere?
I have also checked for kindles passwords, no luck.

@cokolokolo: You're using a non-default USBNet config, that's perfectly expected (read the docs).

Either switch to USBMS and fix your config/setup (I'd recommend shared keys over setting a custom root passwd), or do it over telnet if possible.
