Customize your Minecraft Pocket Edition

No jailbreak required!

Change your skin

1: Download iExplorer and install it

2: Plug your Idevice to your computer.

(For me, I will be using an Ipad but it works for all Idevices)

3: Download a skin I will be using this skin

4: Rename it char.png NOTE: You must rename it char.png

5: Open iExplorer and browse to the folder named:

com.mojang...(That's how it starts)

6: Go to the folder called minecraftpe.app

7: Find the photo named char.png and delete it

8: Drag in the skin you have downloaded and that you have named char.png in the same folder.

9: You now have changed your skin!!!


You can't see the front of the skin because this view mode does not show the front.

Change texture pack

1: Download iExplorer and install it

2: Plug your Idevice in your computer

(I will be using my Ipod touch but it works for all iDevices)

3: Download a texture pack I will be using this texture pack

4: Open the texture pack and only keep terrain.png

5: Open iExplorer and go to com.mojang...

(I don't know the end)

6: Go to minecraftpe.app folder and delete terrain.png

7: Drag in the terrain.png from the texture pack you have downloaded

8: And your done!!!


And there you have it! As you can see, textures are changed.
