single-user mode with OF password
Authored by: Anonymous on Jul 30, '02 01:57:52AM

Hrmm... I bet you can do this from within Open Firmware itself (cmd-option-O-F), if you can get the syntax right; OF's command parser is really ugly. e.g., set boot-args 's' said unknown word: set, but boot-args 's' said unknown word: s. shrug, i'll cruise the kbase I guess.

Lose the quotes:
sudo nvram boot-args=-s
And it's "setenv" in OF:
setenv boot-args -s
