there already is user with uid=3D0 and /bin/sh as a login shell.

 toor:*:0:0:Bourne-again Superuser:/root:/bin/sh

just set him a password.  you can also swap shells between these two
(root vs. toor) if you like but it's always good to have possibility to
log in as a root even if your /bin/{c}sh is screwed for some reason and
the other is not.
