    Want to access your iDevice's filesystem on mac without using the commandline? Fear no more, just grab CyberDuck on your mac and you're good to go.

    Install OpenSSH from Cydia/Telesphoreo and reboot.
    Note the iDevice's IP address from settings > WiFI > network > IP address
    Then, open CyberDuck on your mac and click on Open Connection, select SFTP (SSH) protocol and put in the iDevice's IP address, username root and password of root (default is alpine, please change with passwd in terminal) Then click connect.
    If it asks you to trust the device's fingerprint, trust it.
    That's it, you can upload files by right click > Upload in any directory (I recommend Media)

    If you didn't understand my decent english, there's a youtube video perfectly explaining it right here

    Hey NukiDuki!

    Very nice guide, thank you.

    My solution is the good old iFunBox. Older version (1.8) is working nicely under macOS 11 Big Sur.
    Maybe you need the AFC2 - Apple File Conduit "2" on Cydia.

    Thanks. I’ll try AFC2 but for now iFunbox was working very strange and wasn’t really viable.
