I know I may be doing the most STUPIDEST thing ever, but since people are having trouble out there, I'll see what I can do.

FIRSTLY : Modding the minecraft.jar file can cause save files to either become corrupt and/or irreversible to stock formation once you've played the mod, then potentially uninstall the mod. Always back up the whole .minecraft folder (Users/yourusernamehere/AppData/Roaming/.minecraft) (Also, if you want quick access to the AppData folder, in Windows 7, type %appdata%, and it will open the window at that directory.

SECONDLY : Moddin in general is NOT supported by Mojang, meaning you are on your own if you fuck up with the minecraft.jar folder. Don't come crying to me. (well you can)

Alright. Let's get going!

So I am assuming at this point that you have already downloaded the mod you would want to use in minecraft SSP/SMP, so we're doing the actual installation process now.

Step 1 : Open the mod folder, and you should get a bunch of gibberish (mainly .class files and named folders.) Keep that wondow open for now. You will need something like 7zip, WINRar, or any zip supporting program for this process.

Step 2 : Go to the following directory ;


And open the .minecraft folder.

Step 3 : Goto the bin folder, an locate the minecraft.jar file. Right click, and click Open with... and pick your zip program.

Step 4 : Now for the easiest bit. Copy your mod files to the minecraft.jar window you have opened. It should copy a few seconds to copy the files over.
IMPORTANT : For the FUCKING LOVE OF GOD PLEASE DELETE THE META-INF FOLDER. It has caused whinging and other shit.

Step 5 : Close all windows etc. and launch minecraft. If it goes to the mainscreen (With the Play Singleplayer Tabs etc) then you've most likely did it correctly! If you get a black screen, you may need to try the process again.

Hope you enjoy getting mods on your minecraft worlds and creepers!
