    Here are the steps:

    1. Download the wikipedia app from here: http://collison.ie/wikipedia-iphone/Wikipedia-0.2.2.zip

    2. Download the 2.3 GB dump file from here: http://ftp.heanet.ie/pub/wikipedia-iphone/enwiki-20071018-iphone

    3. Extract both files (the Wikipedia zip and the tar) separately.

    4. SSH the Wikipedia.app into the applications folder in your iPhone. Set permissions to 775. (It’s not enough that you set just the folder. Click all files inside the folder then change to 775)

    5. Change auto-lock setting of iPhone to Never

    6. SSH the “wp” folder from the tar file to private>var>root on your iPhone. Again, set permissions to all files in the folder to 775 after. (Note: this takes really long, around 1 1/2 to 2 hours if you’re on a wireless G router, more than 3 hours if on a wirless B.)

    7. Restart iPhone.

    8. Change your auto-lock settings back to your preferred (1 minute, 2 minutes, etc.).

    9. Enjoy the encyclopedia on your iPhone

    Make sure you are jailbroken first, otherwise you cannot use SSH.

    ^ As jitska says, use diskaid or i-funbox (google them for their respective websites). Install the program & use it to connect to your iPod touch via USB.

    An alternative is to use SSH, for which you would need to install openSSH from cydia & ensure that SSH is set to ON. Then you'd need to connect to your iPod touch using SSH over wifi. For which you'd need WinSCP. Tutorial there in the forum.

    See, doesn't the first option sound better?
