    iFile is one of my must have jailbreak apps and worth every penny. Post up your useful hints and tips in the thread here.

    Common iFile Permissions

    644
    User: Read, Write
    Group: Read
    World: Read

    755
    User: Read, Write, Execute
    Group: Read, Execute
    World: Read, Execute

    775
    User: Read, Write, Execute
    Group: Read, Write, Execute
    World: Read, Execute

    It also should be noted that permissions are binary:

    0100 = 4= Read
    0010 = 2 = Write
    0001 = 1 = Execute

    ...with the digits meaning User / Group / World... i.e. 0755 is 7 User, 5 group and 5 World... which means User is 4,2 and 1 permissions to total 7 (Read, Write & Execute) and Group and World are 4 & 1 to total 5 (Read and Execute)

    If you use the web server feature a lot, you can change the port to make it more simple. For example, my device is called sagePod. The default port is 8080, but if you change your port to 80 in the settings you can just type "sagePod.local" into any browser to access the web server instead of sagepod.local:8080". Saves a bit of time.
