    There already is a "How to" but that's for the old OS, this can be used for all iOSs

    I tested it on iOS 4.0, but it should work on all others the same.

    1. Jailbreak your iDevice by going to jailbreakme.com

    2. After you've done that, install some things from Cydia:

    Install SBSettings.
    Install the two marked with the green check mark

    Install iFile

    3. After done that you will first have to download the needed articels and pictures for the Wikipedia articels:
    Wikipedia Articels (de) (1,6 GB)

    English Articels:
    Part 1 (4,3 GB)
    Part 2
    Part 3
    To match the three parts together you for example can use this software.

    Go to this dialog and then click on "Merge Multi Volume Sets"

    For more info and the pictures see this website.

    4. NOw you should have one "articel_xx.bin" and one "images_xx.bin"
    "xx" is your language.

    5. But how to transfer them to the device? Well, I used GoodReader for that.

    6. The data is now on the iPod and we only need to pull it into the right folder, with the help of iFile! Therefore go to
    /var/mobile/Applications/GoodREader/Documents and then search the two .bin files. Mar them and then copy or move them to /var/mobile/Media/Wikipedia/xx as seen below:

    7. open 127.0.0.1:8080 in Safari
    Select your language.
    Then click on the "+" in the bottom and create a link to this site on the homescreen.
    You're ready now and can use Wiki2Touch on your iDevice!

    shashanknegi if you mean that you need wifi to use the wikipedia data then no. you can just look it up in safari from your offline storage( thats why you downloaded the huge wikipedia file ). im using this on my ipod in school

    You need Wifi ONE time, to download the files and the things from Cydia but to have a look at all the articels you never need it again!
