I tried Cyberduck and it worked perfectly via SFTP. I created Bookmarks to ringtones, themes, etc locations to act like iPhonebrowser. I use iPhonebrowser at work and I really wish that they had the same program for the Mac because it's so easy to use and very simple.
I'll try AFP... do I install AFP on the iPhone and access the file system via USB or do I still need to connect wirelessly?

ifuntastic at the free level seems like it would be a similar product.

Cyberduck is the least confusing interface and I love using it, but if you need to do detailed file work (many files or a lot of arrangement) transmit is the better option because it gives you a split screen dual browser which allows drag and drop from your mac to your phone without having to go hunt the file down on your mac and drag it all the way back to the spot you want to drop it in cyberduck.
Once you use it you'll only open the ducky for quick tasks.
On the left is your mac file system, on the right is your iphone file system. you can navigate either one and drag/drop to the other back and forth flawlessly. You'll also notice the spotlight search bar in the top right to SEARCH the iphone file system. Overall a helluva program.

the best ones to use on a mac are either FUGU or TRANSMIT
TRUST THESE 2 ARE THE BEST

All you're talking about is to move files vía sftp, which is a network protocol. I think that if there was a way to do the transfers by cable it'd be much faster (guess it's the wifi the one that limits speed, not writing to disk).
Isn't any way to do this on OS X?
Edited: corrected a typo.

i cant figure out ifuntastic it looks like a rip and it doesnt work for my 1.1.4

Depending on how you did the jailbreak, you may not have the afc2 service installed which it might need (haven't tested it). Actually, I just Googled and it does need afc2 for the phone to be "unshackled" (should just pick on your tool for not actually "jailbreaking" you phone - installing the afc2 service is the original meaning of jailbreak).
Try searching for afc2 here and installing that.

I'd recommend iPhone Explorer by myPodApps.com. It's freeware, and probably one of the simplest program out there to use. It uses the standard USB interface (not an FTP interface), so you just plug in the iPod and it goes. It works on jailbreaked and non-jailbreaked iPhones/iTouches and everything is also drag-and-drop, which makes using it really quick.
