Modding your jar!


PC instructions:

  1. Go to %appdata%\.minecraft
  2. Open bin\minecraft.jar using your choice of zip opening software (we recommend 7-zip)
  3. Find the awesome mod you want to install and open it too. Unless otherwise noted by mod installation instructions, all you have to do is get all files from mod zip over to minecraft.jar
  4. In the minecrat.jar, delete META-INF folder (and it's contents)
  5. Open minecraft and check that everything works

OSX instructions:

  1. Go to ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft
  2. Uncompress the minecraft.jar file. We recommend using a free program called "The Unarchiver"
  3. The files uncompress into a folder named "minecraft". DELETE META-INF, then drag the mod files into the folder.
  4. Rename the folder "minecraft.jar" (add the .jar extension)
  5. Open minecraft and check that everything works


  • Make sure to download the right version of the mod for your minecraft version.
  • In case of modloader, empty out the mods folder, especially if you have a new version of minecraft & modloader
  • If all goes wrong, you can get fresh un-modded version by pressing force update in minecraft launcher (on mac, make sure to delete minecraft.jar folder)

Automatic methods:

MCPatcher Magic Launcher (as previously featured in episode 1)
