Cydia size mismatch error

While installing SBSettings or other packages in Cydia it kept aborting the installation with the error "Size mismatch error" and an "Okay" button was the only option.

After some googling I found out it was probably network related, disabled Wifi to force going over 3G and the installation worked. It could also be that the repository server is down, in this case be patient and try again later.

Default root password on iPhone 3.0

Just installed SSH, was able to login with:

- root / alpine
- mobile / alpine

You can change the default passwords if logged in via SSH by using the 'passwd' command for both accounts.
