Did you check your keyboard?

Not clear what you mean by this rkflashtool - how did you uninstall, what
server??? IMO you should go to school and learn how to express yourself,
although if English is not at good level some things are acceptable, please
help understand what you exactly mean

The easiest way is to use debian installation disk/usb drive. Mount the root
filesystem and recover the account. (Latest can be done in different ways.
I prefer chroot). Last time I did resque a PC/server with lost root
password, I just removed the pwd hash from the /etc/passwd file. I am not
sure if things have changed recently.
