    Has anyone of you seen a homebrew-made (or so) Wikipedia for the Nintendo DS? o.O
    This would be sooo awesome if someone was willing to make one or something like this.
    The whole Wikipedia is just about 3GB with picures and over 1.5GB without pics. So it could be done.

    Is there anything like this?

    yes, there is an offline wiki for the DS, meaning that you would need to download the latest dump of the wiki and put it in your DS. The english wiki is well over 3GB so it will take a large portion of your microSD.

    By the way, wrong section.

    I have the English wiki dump from January and WITHOUT pics it's around 14 gb... With pics I think it hits 40-50gb. I don't need wiki on my DS - I got it on my iPod...

    It's big, but not that big, English and German Wikipedia together are ~5.5GB.

    It's 4.1 GB Compressed.. but if you want to be able to view or use it you will need to decompress.. and that takes it to about 20 GB...
