How to install PocketBDcraft for MCPE on iOS

For iOS6 and iOS7.1, installing a ResourcePack in Minecraft Pocket Edition requires a jailbreak. If you want to use PocketBDcraft, be sure to read the following guide which describes step-by-step everything required to jailbreak and install PocketBDcraft on you iDevice.

For iOS7.0.0 - 7.0.4 (and iOS5 or earlier), you can install PocketBDcraft without Jailbreak thanks to iFunBox (Free version).

READ THIS BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE

iOS jailbreaking is the process of removing limitations on iOS.
A jailbroken dev running iOS can still use the App Store, iTunes, and other normal functions, such as making telephone calls.

The legality of jailbreaking depends on countries and conditions.

Restoring a device with iTunes removes the jailbreak.

DO NOT Jailbreak your device if:

  • you don't know what a Jailbreak is
  • you don't have enough time (~10-15minutes)
  • you don't want to follow a step-by-step guide with lots of bullets

The process of jailbreaking is highly frowned upon by Apple and Operators. BDcraft simply provides this information to help users installing PocketBDcraft on their device knowing that Minecraft PocketEdition do not support ResourcePacks yet. We do not encourage that ANYONE jailbreak their device. It has potential to void your warranty, and as it is unsupported, can render your device unusable.

Prerequisite

  • 5-10 minutes of your time!
  • A computer running Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.6 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64)
  • iTunes installed
  • An iDevice (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch) with iOS 7.0 up to 7.0.6 (You can check in your Settings > General > About > Version)
  • An USB Cable to connect your device to your computer
