    Uploading a zip file to ipad 2

    I wonder if you can help me. I need to listen to a mastered album on my jail broken iPad 2 64 gb wifi. It's a very large zip file. I downloaded the file (took about 10 mins) but would not let me upload to dropbox because the file is over 180 mb. I tried the jb app Fulldrop but it crashes when I get to the upload screen. Anything else I can try? Thanks for your time.

    GoodReader can transfer it directly to your iPad using WiFi from your PC and can then unzip it. Because it's a direct WiFi transfer, it's fast - 54 Mbps or better - and there's no restriction on the size of file.

    Errrr. No PC I'm afraid. Am I stuck? I only got an iPad. I'm a purist! A purist that might have to go to the Internet shop.....

    I'm slightly confused - you say in your original post that you already downloaded it - so is it now on your iPad? What do you want to do with it if it's on your iPad already? If it's not on your iPad - and I misinterpreted the original post - where is it?

    I click on the zip file link in my email On my iPad. Then it takes like 10 mins to load then asks if I want to open it in dropbox. dropbox won't allow because it's over 180 mb.

    OK - GoodReader can still help. In the email touch and hold the URL/link and you'll get a pop up box. Choose 'Copy'. If you have GoodReader then you can paste that URL into GoodReader's web browser, whose sole purpose in life is to download files that Safari can't/won't handle.
