    In the Sticky for jailbreaking on a PC, the author mentions in step 9 how you "Open with...WinRAR Archiver"
    I just checked it out and winRAR archiver costs 29 bucks!
    Is this step necessary, or am I missing something?

    Yes, its necessary. You can download a 30 day trial of win rar or you can use a free alternative of which there are many.

    LOL winRAR lasts forever on your computer. like a year after you download the free version, everytime you open it, it will say "winRAR isn't a free application. you have to pay for it. blahblahblah." but, theres an X you can click and that popup will close and you can use it regularly with no problems.

    i haven't jailbroken myself, but i'd bet GOOD money that this step isn't avoidable.

    Or use Uniextract. Or people could stop using the RAR file format.
