      Yeah in my case I do hit SSH but the login fails - coz it cant spawn the shell I am guessing. I had the passwd file point to bash on the optware USB drive.

I was attempting to install Optware and inadvertently screwed up the /etc/passwd file so cannot login to SSH any more for the root account. I dont have any other user accounts on the device. My.pogoplug.com continues to work fine - I am wondering if there is anyway I can boot of SATA or USB and revert the passwd file on the device?
