How to find out the password for Huawei EchoLife HG8245

Configured today GPON ONT Huawei EchoLife HG8245C to OLT and it was necessary to go to its web interface to change the password on Wi-Fi, and the standard root login and password admin did not fit. I had to perform several manipulations.
Of course, to begin with, connect to any of the LAN ports, wait until the DHCP ONT is turned on, it will give out IP, such as 192.168.1.2 or set it manually.
Connect via telnet to ONT IP 192.168.1.1, enter login root and password admin.
Then type the following commands one at a time:

shell
cd /mnt/jffs2/
grep admin  myconfig.xml

As a result, the last command gives information about what is happening in the web interface:

useradmin
vufum

and

telecomadmin
nE7jA%5m

Passwords can also be written on the device label. In the settings you can change the password, in this case the user will be useradmin and the specified password.
For HG8245, the standard administrative login and password telecomadmin \ admintelecom, for users – admin/admin. For Chinese HG8245C standard – telecomadmin \ nE7jA%5m.
There may be further passwords for telecomadmin:
