    Hi!
    I have an iphone 6 ios 8.x (i think 8.1.2).
    This morning i wanted to ssh but forgot my root password.
    Came across a link showing how to edit master.passwd but i edited the entire "root:" line and instead of replacing with "root:/smx7MYTQIi2M:0:0::0:0:System Administrator:/var/root:/bin/sh" i replaced with "root:/smx7MYTQIi2M"

    And now my phone is stuck in a bootloop. Is there anything i can do to fix this without having to update the ios and lose everything?

    Thanks!

    Hopefully someone will has some advice for you soon, but this is why I don't mess with jailbreaking my devices.

    Unfortunately, restoring the iOS is likely your only option... get it into DFU mode and connect to iTunes.
