    Permissions can be set via SSH only.
    USB transfer is much faster.

    Switch between the two depending on the job you are trying to complete.

    USB transfer has nothing to do with SSH, SSH is wireless. And permissions can be set with mobilefinder for sure, not sure about iFile, but you can for sure do it by using a command prompt: in example,
    Code:
    sudo chmod XXX /path/to/file
    So yeah.

    Permissions can be set with iFile in a graphical way,no commands requiered,
    You can transfer files too very easy ,all without put any paintfull command.

    Whoops. I forgot iFile was an App. I though it was a program similar to iFunBox

    SSH will let you transfer files onto the iPod.
    iFile only lets you manage (move and edit-to an extent) files already on the iPod.

    I have no idea how you would use that.

    How does this suit sir?
    SSH is easier for transfering files to your iPod but iFile makes modifying files easier on the go.

    Supous you are in a directory you want to transfer your files ,just push the wifi icon ,and you can transfer your files very easy and fast.

    there isn't really a direct comparison between the two. both are very useful tools in there own way.
