How To Install Minecraft – Pocket Edition Texture Packs

Minecraft Pocket Edition Texture Packs

Note: you do not require a jailbroken device in order to install texture packs!

Less than a week ago, Minecraft – Pocket Edition was finally updated with the first of the survival updates, and it seems to be a hit with much more positive criticism.  Now that we’re one step closer to a somewhat similar experience to what we’ve come to love on the PC platform, much more people seem to be picking it up.

For those who have, you may be one of those people who love switching around the texture packs on the PC version, and you may be stuck using a great looking texture pack. Much like doing so on PC, it is extremely easy to get your own texture pack on your iOS version.

In order to do so you will require iExplorer, which is a free download from Once you’ve downloaded and installed the program, plug in your iOS device with Minecraft – Pocket Edition installed and open up iExplorer. Navigate your way to “com.mojang.minecraftpe” and open ““. Then drag and drop the new iOS specific texture pack files into the folder, and replace all existing files, but it would be a good idea to backup the whole folder, just in case you change your mind.

There is a whole sub-forum devoted to iOS texture packs on the Minecraft Forums, so head on over now if you’re interested.
