    rename *dz to *gz,then unzipped with 7-zip. put this *.dict file and *.idx to /var/root/Library/weDict/

    i did it with no problems. these dictionaries are not very thorough. i thought i could find a lot more but i guess i was wrong. i cant install all of them because there isnt enough room on my iphone. thank a lot though!

    i should add that the Drug Information dictionary is not working. when i search a medication it basically gives me a bunch of websites and tells me nothing about the medication at all. anyone else having this problem?

    where do you put the image files.

    these dictionaries need to be installed to /private/var/root/Library/weDict

    After downloading a dictionary, extract. Then rename *.dict.dz to *.dict.gz, extract.

    Copy *.dict and *.idx to /private/var/root/Library/weDict

    Done!

    I Tryed all the dictionarys I could find.

    The Drug infomation one just hads a bunch of links to nih.gov but you can't even click them so it's no use at all.

    Dictionary of medicine has no medicine in it it has some small phrases and stuff that I found but no drug information.

    I have searched google and still can't find a good stardict that will work
