    yeah you definitely downloaded the wrong one

    the one you want is 3.2gb, use the wiki2touch transfer tool and it gives you a download link and it indexes and sticks it on your ipod all in one

    Just curious, why do people want Wikipedia offline when they can just hit Safari and get the latest up-to-date information (since the downloaded version doesn't update)?

    Yeah, I understand that, but I never find myself in the need of having to use Wikipedia when I'm oustide of an access point. Maybe that's just me..

    crypt thanks , i got the right one, just that i went and extracted it with winrar and it became a XML of 15gb. now running through the program they had. takes 2:30. should be right. the xml is 15gb because i extracted it from the .xml.bz2
