Hi all,

I have pdaXii13.
I've tried to change the shell on a default user (root) and edited the /etc/passwd
It seems after reboot the system could not access/parse this file. So I cannot do anything to restore it..
I've tried to boot from SD card to recover it, but I don't know what to mount. I've used default partitioning scheme.
What could possibly be done to edit /etc/passwd now? Which device should I mount and how from recovery console (when booting from SD card where I have installation files for pdaXii13).

Device is Zaurus C3000.

Try to mount the root filesystem which is in /dev/mtdblock2 , a reference post is here. I have tried to find a more detailed information on the partition table in NAND, but I only found a post detailing the C3200 one, which seem to differ from the ones on all the other models.

This is a test post, there seem to be problems by other users in replying to this thread.
