Summary0002507: Change default SSHD setup in headless ARM images - (aka, "ssh is hard")

Due to the change to sshd on 2.0, root logins now require having an authorized_key to ssh in as root. Unfortunately, for headless setups, this is less than ideal. So make a change to the images for rpi, rpi-tft, rpi2, odroid-c and usbarmory devices to allow people to login as root with the password.

Additional Information

Changing a file by mounting the partition after imaging the SD card is hard, so we're going to make the change across the board for these 5 images to be less secure.


There are no notes attached to this issue.
