    It's not possible to 'unzip' on an iPod. What exactly is it you're wanting to do?

    This came form the Ultimate Sources Thread:

    Moyashi's Stuff: hpcgi3.nifty.com/moyashi/ipodtouch/repository.cgi

    Bzip2 / GNU / Synthesis Engine / GNU Plot / Less / LHa / Lua / lv / Kanji Filter / SED
    / Unzip / Zip / Text Import / Text Export / 2ch Viewer / MobileTerminal / Lyrics / TerminalV / iComic / CL MMP Controller / CL WiFi / WiFi Switch / HistoryDL

    If You Don't Understand Some Of The Apps From This Repo, Then You Don't Need It, It's Terminal Utilities



    There are zip commands, but it's all through the terminal.

    Yeah. They use the terminal. So if you arent comfortable with that, id wait until maybe a app comes out that can do that.

    Note: you need to download "CLU - zip" from Utilities in installer.


    Pasted straight from SSH:

    UnZip 5.52 of 28 February 2005, by Info-ZIP. Maintained by C. Spieler. Send
    bug reports using http://www.info-zip.org/zip-bug.html; see README for details.

    Usage: unzip [-Z] [-opts[modifiers]] file[.zip]
    • [-x xlist] [-d exdir]
      Default action is to extract files in list, except those in xlist, to exdir;
      file[.zip] may be a wildcard. -Z => ZipInfo mode ("unzip -Z" for usage).

      -p extract files to pipe, no messages -l list files (short format)
      -f freshen existing files, create none -t test compressed archive data
      -u update files, create if necessary -z display archive comment
      -x exclude files that follow (in xlist) -d extract files into exdir

      modifiers: -q quiet mode (-qq => quieter)
      -n never overwrite existing files -a auto-convert any text files
      -o overwrite files WITHOUT prompting -aa treat ALL files as text
      -j junk paths (do not make directories) -v be verbose/print version info
      -C match filenames case-insensitively -L make (some) names lowercase
      -X restore UID/GID info -V retain VMS version numbers
      -K keep setuid/setgid/tacky permissions -M pipe through "more" pager
      Examples (see unzip.txt for more info):
      unzip data1 -x joe => extract all files except joe from zipfile data1.zip
      unzip -p foo | more => send contents of foo.zip via pipe into program more
      unzip -fo foo ReadMe => quietly replace existing ReadMe if archive file newer


      So basically, if you wanted to unzip /data/file.zip, you would use just that, "unzip /data/file.zip" and that should create a folder in /data called file with all of the contents unzipped to it.
