    This was written by me in another thread . I felt it to be a bit simpler, and am also curious to see if it was correct since I didn't fulfill all the steps considering I was in the middle of a restore. I just don't want any discrepancies, so someone doesn't stumble along and see this. If anyone could try this out, that'd be great

    Manual

    1) Download the files from here. The name of the zip is Wiki2Touch 65.zip.
    Description: Wiki2Touch 0.65 - Contains the files for your iPhone/iPod Touch Featured
    2) Extract the archived download
    3) Open the folder and continue going through folders until you reach two folders named
    "Applications" and "private"
    Applications
    1) Select the "Applications" folder, there should be "Wiki2Touch.app"
    2) SSH into your iPod. I recommend WinSCP
    3) Drag and drop the Wiki2Touch.app to the "Applications" folder on your iPod.
    4) Right-click on the entire folder itself, Wiki2Touch.app. Type in 755 for the permissions and then check the box to set permissions recursively
    Private
    1) Select the Private folder and continue navigating until you reach the "Wikipedia" folder
    2) SSH into your iPod. I recommend WinSCP
    3) Go into var/mobile/Media and drop the "Wikipedia folder
    4) Go into var/root/Media and right-click and create a new directory named Wikipedia
    5) Execute these two commands by pressing crtl-t in WinSCP
    • ln -s /var/mobile/Media/Wikipedia/* .
    • chmod 777 /var/mobile/Media/Wikipedia/*
    Articles
    *Assumes the user is on Windows
    1) Download the Utilities here. The name of this file is Wiki2TouchUtils_Win_065a.zip
    Description:Tools for creating and transfering article and image database - Windows Executables
    2) Extract the download
    3) Open the folder, then extract the archived file named wiki2touch_transfertool_win_0.14
    4) Open the newly extracted folder, wiki2touch_transfertool_win_0.14
    5) Run the program
    6) Connect your Touch to your computer
    7) Select the desired Language.
    8) Select Download. (The file will be quite large, gigabytes upon gigabytes!)

    9) Your default browser will open, then a download box will appear.
    10) Save to Disk, I recommend the Desktop as the save path because it is easier to navigate and all this.
    11) After the download is complete, go under step 2 in wiki2touch transfer and select the file you just download

    12) After the file has been indexed, it should upload automatically or you need to select upload

    Images
    *Above, you had indexed the articles, it created a folder. There should have been one file named articles and another named images.txt. In the Utilities folder, wiki2touch_transfertool_win_0.14, there should be an .exe file named ImageGetter.

    1) Place the images.txt in that same folder, Utilities. Then run ImageGetter
    2) ImageGetter will now download the images. It will take some time though.
    *Not all images will be found. There will be 2-4% not found
    3) After the images are downloaded, run the program pack.exe, or pack, located in that same folder, wiki2touch_transfertool_win_0.14. It will now create one large file named images from the folder "Downloaded Images".
    4) Copy the images.bin to /var/mobile/Media/Wikipedia/en {language here}
    (this should be the right path, there hasn't been much of a definite instruction)
    *Be sure to make a backup of the other though in case
    5) Change permissions to 755.

    This should be it, enjoy. If, any corrections need to be made just post. I did this pretty fast

    I'm indexing my de file right now (only 1,12 GB, en is too much for me ^^).
    I'll tell you if it works.

    Btw, how large is the images.bin file (en)?

    Update:

    Thank you! Worked great. However, I left out the images because I heard that the .bin-file has a ridiculous size.

    Whole point of the thread was to make sure it was correct lol.

    And yes the images are pretty impractical considering size, but I'm glad it helped you out.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention that you might wanna update your original post since the latest version of wiki2touch is .65 and not .60. It's not a big thing but im just saying... ^^
