Sorry if this has been asked already, but i have searched the community and cannot find anything.
What is the password for root if i am connecting via SSH? I have tried, onion, onioneer and 5up.
I have even tried to change the password using passwd to no avail.
Any help would be appreciated. The version I am using is 0.0.6 b266
Hi @Cooper-Chan ... By default it should be "onioneer". If this is not working then try to get in using serial USB mode. Just connect your phone microusb cable between ur PC and omega (you may need to install drivers) see this link for more details
Hi @Nayan, Thank you for your reply. Although I am connected via Serial currently, it would be preferable to use ssh and scp so that I can remotely connect to it when it is integrated into something else.
Unfortunately, onioneer doe not work for me...
@Cooper-Chan ... Did you try using the passwd command to change the root password when connected via serial?
Hi @Nayan , yes I changed the password to "root" and still doesnt work.

Do you get any error when you try to connect? Is your Omega connected to the Network (same sub-net) while you try to login over ssh?
You made it this way?
For those that come across the same issue and google leads them to this conversation: check if ssh isn't using your local user ID for the connection (
yourlocaluser@omega-ABCD.local). Use the command like this:
