non root login your open wrt router

Here is a summary of the steps required :

1. edit /etc/passwd and create an account. I used admin.  set shell /bin/false so users cant login either via ssh or the console using this account.
2. edit /etc/shadow and clone the root line and name it admin

here is my /etc/passwd

here is /etc/shadow
root:$1$dcjUpu/v$MGBl1uIAGSwTpV5Rwnmv50:15225:0:999997:::  # jangan Merubah apapun pada baris ini
admin:$1$q6rcQdCT$6Va8cqauOlDMAKvVX.HgH.:15225:0:99999:7::: # bisa diganti via command passwd admin

3. passwd admin and assign admin a new password
4. edit /usr/lib/lua/luci/controller/admin/index.lua and change line 28 to read
page.sysauth = {“admin”,”root”}
5. edit /usr/lib/lua/luci/controller/admin/system.lua and change line 326 to read
stat = luci.sys.user.setpasswd(“admin”, p1)
this is important or luci will change the root password instead of the admin password under system->administration
6. edit /usr/lib/lua/luci/controller/admin/servicectl.lua line 18 to read
entry({“servicectl”}, alias(“servicectl”, “status”)).sysauth = {“admin”,”root”}
this allows luci to save and activate changes.

once this is done you can login into luci as either root or admin.    Note that when logging in as root (or admin) changing the password in the gui only affects the password for admin.  The only way to change the root password is via the shell.  This is perfect for most since you want the user to access the gui and manage his account but you want to a service account that techs can use to do maintenance on the router no matter what the admin user has done in the gui

you may also can edit your custom rule menu configuration in order limiting acces your admin by editing: /overlay/usr/lib/lua/luci/model/cbi/firewall
