I got my Jolla, and I'm as happy as can be, but I'm having some problems with the terminal.

When I first used it, I was able to fix a password, and log in as root, but now, whenever I try to use su and log, I just get "su: incorrect password"

I've tried to reset the password to different passwords, rebooting the phone, restarting terminal, etc, any suggesitions?

I'm not 100% sure, but AFAIK, the 'real' linux su command is not supported. You have to use devel-su instead. Or did you mean that by 'su'?

Thank you, that's what I did wrong, now everything is great!
