Unzipping ROM files
Has anyone been able to successfully extract a RAR file on your phone with any application? I like to play with my phone while I'm at work, and I've been able to do update.zip upgrades to the BB ROM on the phone itself since the files don't need to be decompressed, but I can't unzip a RAR for the life of me.
For the record, I've tried unzipping ZIP and a RAR file (specifically Pete's 2.1 ROM) with the following apps and results:
Astro - Blinks for a second, nothing happens, no new files appear.
Unzip - Errors out every time
AndroZip - Tries really hard to extract but typically ends up erroring out or extracting only partial files.
Anybody know of another good app that can successfully manage a RAR file on the phone itself?
The following statement is true
The previous statement is false
