Is this the correct method ?
To reset the root password I restarted the system into single use mode until I got the #
mount -o rw,remount /dev/sdax
I edited the /etc/shadow file with nano and deleted the encrypted field, saved and checked
I reboot, open terminal, su or su - but the new password doesn't work
