SSH Login Problem After Upgrading Harmattan N950 to PR 1.1

Recently PR 1.1 upgrade notification poped up on my N950 developer device and as normal reflex I started upgrade.
This time update was supported over wifi and upgrade gone well, with some low memory warning which we can safely ignore.But after upgrade I found that I could no longer ssh to device with root account.

Root login via ssh (password or public key) is now disabled with PR1.1. But If you still want to login using ssh then you can try following work around.You need to unlock developer account and set password for developer account.

To do this, on your device's terminal type devel-su (to access device as root) and then type "rootme" password.

devel-su

Now you have root access to device. Now you need to set developer account password, using following command.

passwd developer

Enter new password for developer account.Now you can ssh using developer account and new password.

ssh [email protected]

now if you wish to have root access you can type devel-su command,

devel-su

Now you will have access to root account. Following is output from my terminal.

ssh [email protected]
[email protected]'s password:

BusyBox v1.19.0.git (MeeGo 3:1.19-8+0m6) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

/home/developer $ devel-su
Password:

BusyBox v1.19.0.git (MeeGo 3:1.19-8+0m6) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
