    step 10 of rooting
    Create a unprivileged user account to be used when logging in:

    In the code below, change "preuser" to your prefered login name. You will be creating a variable called "MYUSER" in the first line. From that point on do not* type your username, type $MYUSER as it says in the code blocks.

    export MYUSER=preuser # You should change "preuser" to something else (your preferred username)...
    adduser -h /var/home/$MYUSER $MYUSER # You'll be asked to set your password here.

    If the Pre complains that your password is weak, then you should really use a more secure password. If you specifically wish to have weak password, just repeat it to confirm and it will take it. It does not reject weak passwords, it just warns about them. Remember that your Pre will contain your personal information, so you really do want a strong secure password.
