you can simply changes your encrypted password of your user on /etc/shadow and set it to U6aMy0wojraho

Example :

# vim /etc/shadow

look for  your username, in my case it will be test

test:$1$gEF/FyxR$V40saBgHX4EsFX4JtrP5i0:14460:0:99999:7:::
You just need to changes the bold text into  U6aMy0wojraho
test:U6aMy0wojraho:14460:0:99999:7:::
then save and quit
:wq!
Then reboot it
# reboot
then go to your sheel or GUI to test it 🙂
I have test it on ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10
