Resetting your superuser password

Postby TheBrew » Sat Jul 02, 2011 12:01 pm

In case you forget the superuser password you can reset it via the in-app Settings -> Advanced page -> Reset Superuser Password.

If you're running an older version of ShutterSnitch (prior to v4.7) this is the way to do it:

1. On your device, go to the home screen.
2. Connect the device to iTunes and upload a file named "resetpassword" to ShutterSnitch using the Apps > File Sharing feature.
3. On your device, open ShutterSnitch and you'll be asked to put in a new password.

The "resetpassword" file can simply be a empty textfile saved from, for example, TextEdit or Notepad.
