    Wikipedia is available Offline you can download and index the newset dump with wiki2touch transfer tool.
    And you can install a wikiserver on your ipod which loads the dump in mobile safari.

    Update: Leave out step 1-5 and install wikisrvd from Cydia instead

    ( Tut: (The TUT is in big parts from a little German Web Blog, I´ve transalted their post and change some things)

    1. Install Bossprefs


    2. Connect to your iPod with SSH; USb whatever and upload this file to /var/mobile/

    3. Get Putty. (google)

    4. In Putty log in as mobile. The password is alpine

    5. Put in this commands

    ls *.deb

    su (password alpine, too)

    dpkg -i wikisrvd-bossprefs-r137-20080814-1.deb

    exit )

    5. Now should Wiki2Touch work already.
    But before using have you to downlaod a dump (the articles in one file)

    6. Open the TransferTool and download the Dump in your language.

    7. Chose the downloaded file in step 2 and start indexer.

    8. Upload the file via the TransferTool to the iPod in Step3

    9. If the upload is ready reboot your device

    10. Open Safari and go to http://127.0.0.1:8080/index.html

    11. Now you should see s.th. like this:

    12. If not check if you have Wiki2Touch turned on in BossPrefs.


    Wik2Touch is not my work. All Credits go to Tom Haukap. and to ipod.backshot.eu for their tutorial (german) and their serverspace.
