Perhaps some players in Minecraft Pocket Edition remember the days when a program called BlockLauncher was required to install textures. The installation process was not too easy, but those days are gone! Recently, to install add-ons in Minecraft PE, you need to do a small number of simple steps. Individual texture formats require different actions. Let’s take a closer look at How To Install Texture Packs on Minecraft PE.


Installing textures using a .MCPack file. MCPack is the fastest. Read the detailed procedure to follow:

  • Download the texture file in .mcpack
  • Find the file with downloaded files on your phone, find our downloaded file
  • On some devices, you can immediately open the .mcpack file, but this does not always work.
  • What should I do if the file does not open right away? To get started, download a handy file manager. We recommend File Manager (Google Play)
  • Launch the file manager and activate the downloaded file
  • After launching the file, an instant installation of the add-on for Minecraft PE will begin
  • Don’t forget to apply the texture pack in the map settings, or the global settings.
  • Done!


You may have problems installing .mcpack textures. In this case, you should use the second most popular installation format – ZIP or RAR archive. Read the instructions to help you:

  • Go to the Texture Packs for MCPE section and download the texture pack that interests you.
  • Use the explorer built into your phone, or download the file manager. We recommend using the convenient File Manager (Google Play)
  • Open Explorer (or file manager) and find the downloaded ZIP or RAR archive on the device
  • Next, select the archive, click “Advanced” – “Extract” and unzip all the files where it is convenient for you
  • After successfully extracting the files, you should see the folder
  • Copy the folder. In the file manager that we recommended to you, you need to use a long press on the folder, and then click on the “Copy” button
  • Open the folder /games/com.mojang/
  • Open the resource_packs folder or create it if it doesn’t exist
  • Paste the copied folder into resource_packs
  • Launch Minecraft PE. Open “Settings” – “Global Resources” and activate the downloaded textures.
  • Done!
