    Whats an easy to use app that will unzip .rar package of files? I know you can just SSH and unzip it on the computer. but is there something that will do it directly on the ipod?
    Something easy to use...

    Thanks

    Why would you want to unzip a .rar file?

    download unrar in cydia.

    then go into terminal and type "cd /var/mobile/Library/Downloads/" (or whatever the rar file's location is)

    then type "x unrar /var/mobile/Library/Downloads/[filename].rar"

    if x unrar doesn't work, try z unrar.

    EDIT: if the filename is too long, you can just type the first couple letters of it followed by an asterisk and it will find it for you. eg; OMGthis_unraristehshiznitss45763.rar = OMG*.rar
