How to set password for terminal
I would like to run several sudo commands in a terminal, which requires me to enter my password. But I was never prompted to enter a password, is there a default password? My pine phone came preinstalled (Manjaro-ARM, Release 21.03).
it is good idea to check some basics before installing new images, this is for future when you install something different.

The premade users are:
User: manjaro
Password: 123456

almost all pinephone images use sudo system. it means that user password is given, not the root's password. although root user is usually not activated.
i think you have to edit the sudoers file

Note that you can use sudo -i to become root in the terminal, and you can also fully enable the root account by setting a password with passwd in that root shell, or with sudo passwd in a normal user shell.
