So jailbroke the ipad successfully and tried to ssh into it using terminal and it works. I then tried to change the root and mobile user passwords which also went smoothly. Now when i try to SFTP it using the same credentials using a client like transmit. It fails saying - The user name or password was not accepted by the server.

Have you tried logging back in via Terminal/ssh since you changed the passwords to make sure you typed everything correctly? – MattDMo Feb 18 '13 at 16:05
Yes tried multiple times and ensured everything was correct and in sync. Still a No-GO for me.Thought is has something to do with this -… but still cant figure it out since my keys are stored at the default ~./ssh location. – Optimus1509 Feb 18 '13 at 18:34
