    I've been using DSOrganize to download alot of stuff directly onto my ds, since my computer isn't always available, and I've run into alot of .zip files that I can't do anything with. Is there some sort of homebrew ap that can unzip them while in your ds?

    I can't seem to find anything. I don't think there is, but it should be possible. (Maybe like some emulators they can read .zip files, some, I don't know about DS, never tried)

    There's a very basic program called DScompress, which does Gzip and ZIP extraction and compression I believe.

    Latest release is 1.3.

    It's the only release which has ZIP support, so 1.2 wouldn't be recommended. [​IMG]

    I use DSCompress, and it works well. You can actually get it off of the DSOrganize Homebrew Database thing.

    Awesome.
    Do you know if it supports .rar files as well as .zip?

    Sadly, it doesn't support .rar files. If it did, I would just download my games from my DS.

    Also, incase anyone didn't know, Bunajalloo can decompress .zip files when you download them straight from the browser.

    Bunjalloo is a great tool for decompressing, seconded.

    DSLinux also has an "unzip" command you can use for unzipping files. Worked fine for the few files I tested it with.

    EDIT: DSLinux not DSOrganize

    I think DSLinux already have an unzipping feature in the OS if you feel confortable with command-line, that is.

    Whoops, that's what I meant to say in my post. Was distracted while typing I guess, so thanks for the correction.
