Not by default, Fedora doesn't come with default accounts because it's
not secure so you're generally expected to create them on first boot
to ensure you set something unique. There's the --norootpass and/or
--addkey= options to arm-image-installer that allow you to add a ssh
key or allow no root passoword for headless if you really must do it
Another approach, that I use all the time, is a uart to usb converter
then run something like screen to give you access to the console. The
character mode installer works fine this way.
