    lol much respect to whoever creates a full blown detailed tutorial on how to use this app...i have done everything everyone else has done..and all i get is article not found...and yes..ive tried putting the bin file in 2 diff locations set everything to 0755 wasted 6 hours of my day and sh*t doesnt work....

    end of my rant...

    hope everyone has a good day

    ok this is what I did.

    1) Download
    http://wiki2touch.googlecode.com/files/Wiki2Touch_051.zip (App)

    2) Download http://download.wikimedia.org/enwiki/latest/enwiki-latest-pages-articles.xml.bz2 (Articles)

    // THIS IS FOR WINDOWS
    3) Download
    http://[PIRACY.rs].de/files/38703752/Wiki2Touch_050b.zip.html (0.5.1 from the google page only has the files updated for 0.51)

    4) make a folder on your desktop named wikipedia

    5) from the zip file above move bin/windows/indexer.exe to the wikipedia folder

    6) move the wikipedia dump to that folder and rename it wikipedia

    7) go to start --> run --> cmd --> go

    8) type cd Desktop
    cd wikipedia
    indexer wikipedia.xml.bz2
    9) wait....

    10) from the zip file above SSH all of the files from the iphone-ipodtouch folder to the appropriate place on the ipod.

    11) overwrite any files with what is in the 0.51 zip

    12) navigate wiki2touch.app to your ipod. Change the following to permission 0755

    /Applications/wiki2touch.app (the folder)
    Applications/wiki2touch.app/wiki2touch
    /Applications/wiki2touch.app/daemon/wikisrvd

    13) put articles.bin in /private/var/root/Media/Wikipedia/en on your ipod (make sure you did step 10)

    14) change its permissions to 0755

    THIS IS WHERE I HAD PROBLEMS AT FIRST

    15) Go to installer app and install PHP, Apache, and BSD Subsystem

    I think thats it. Now that i helped out someone else, will someone help me get images working??

    0.51 was released, but the download on their site only includes the files that were changed from 0.50 --> 0.51 so you first have to put 0.50, then overwrite it with the updated files.

    In the 0.50 folder there is also a folder in /var/root/media/library/Wikipedia that you have to put on your iPod. (the articles.bin goes in Wikipedia/en)

    I looked in the .50 folder and there is only /var/root/media/wikipedia/..(all the language codes). What folder am I supposed to put on my ipod?
