Hi  guys
I am new here. Wonder if someone has any issues with changing password in Rokos OS v8 (rapsberry). I changed it as suggested by the installation instructions and now I am  not allowed to login ? Someone having the same problem?

please provide more info, what command you used, etc.

most probably you used : sudo passwd 
which would change the "root" account password not the "pi" account password.

use: passwd
without "sudo" so it can change the "pi" account password.

standard password: rokos
