B-rad figured it out! Thank you man!

The solution was to delete group, group-, passwd, passwd-, shadow and shadow- through Web frontend file manager, waiting 2 minutes and rebooting the device by unplugging.

I have this same problem but I can't delete those files.
I can do nothing with user root because he hasn't permission to do anything.
B-rad, som help please.
When I telnet with user root I get a message that says "can't chdir to home directory '/home/root'".
What happened?

Ok, I managed to work.
I had the 3 lines:
cd /
cp -f etc/passwd.orig /conf/passwd
cp -f etc/shadow.orig /conf/shadow
cp -f etc/group.orig /conf/group
to S00custom-options, alter the network to share wdtvlive but without security, rebooted and voila.
Thanks

I believe I've run into the same problem. Though I haven't been able to resolve the issue based on what's described in this thread. Can someone list the steps explicitly? I may be missing something.

well I'm not exactly sure, but you could also make a new directory in /conf I learned the hard way that wipes everything out, including my root password, etc sort of like starting fresh, but I'm sure there's a better way ;)

Re: Unable to login as root

I'm unable to telnet into my WDLXTV Live.

I've tried several suggestions here, lastly adding these lines to the S00custom/options on a fat32 stick ...

#!/bin/sh
cd /
cp -f /etc/passwd.orig /conf/passwd
cp -f /etc/shadow.orig /conf/shadow
cp -f /etc/group.orig /conf/group

and re-booting the device (pulling plug)

When I try to telnet into the WD, I am asked for login. I type root and <Enter>
Then a # symbol shows on the next line. I hit the <Enter> key and nothing happens.

Back on the login line, if I type something like root@192.168.1.73 and hit <Enter>, then passwork does show up on the next line, but If I hit <Enter> it says, "log-in incorrect"

About to tear my hair out! :cry:
