hacking mac osX login password


Recommended Posts

ok well simple enough question is, are there any methods of cracking mac osX login passwords ? i know of methods of cracking pc/windows login password. i dont own a mac and the reason i ask is that i had a client that bought a mac laptop off the street with a password and all think of is to get a copy of the os cd and do and complete reinstall. ether the copy i got of the net was fake or their a certain way the cd had to be burned, because it dosn't boot the cd?!

thnx for your time everyone

Or you can just change and or dump the passwords in the sameish way.

Hold down appple + s during reboot until you enter single user mode, then type

/sbin/fsck -y


/sbin/mount -uw /

and finally


theeen passwd root or passwd [name of the main account] :D

I have found this seems to work on OS X systems before 1.0.4 (or whatever) Have fun :)
