Tips and Warnings

• This mod is compatible with OptiFine, Liteloader, Forge and Vanilla Minecraft.

• This mod changes .class files, therefore it is not compatible with some mods.

• Fly mode is disabled by default, you need to enable it through keybinding in controls menu.

• Some key binds might conflict with each other, so you will have to set them unique.

• Xray Mod is frowned upon by many servers. It is considered as cheat, so be careful.


  • So many mods gave me a black screen for 1.4.6. Use this one, it finally works. Thank you whoever fixed this mod.

    • you probably forgot to delete Meta-Inf. i made that mistake a number of times, and my screen was black. but as soon as i deleted it, it worked. glad this one does.

  • The mod works great but im on a server and all of a sudden i cant see anything! idk what happened i tried hitting “x” and “r” but nothing changes! everything is see through

  • This mod won’t let me see water now that I have downloaded it. Anyone have any clues to how this problem might be changed, and I have tried all the controls.

    • @tyrenth If u have optifine, thats the case. It does work with optifine

    • to fix the water problem and still get all of optifine you should:

      1. install optifine and run MC
      2. install xray and run MC
      3. install optifine again and run MC

      (this still allows you to do the zoom in feature of optifine)

  • This crashed my minecraft everytime I tried to go on multiplayer or a singleplayer map.

  • Hey I believe there is a bug where in xray mode certain redstone items act almost as if hit by water, this also include rails and ladders all becoming detached from where they were placed. This has happened twice and only when I’d look at them thru xray. Hope you can fix this, I’ll be sure to avoid my redstone for awhile. but awesome mod thanks 😀

  • redstone fider dont work, I cant finde redstone whit it

  • I’ve gotten to the page but when i skip the advristivement it dosent move. any suggestions?

    • I haven’t found a single xray download link that has worked. I’m having the same problem as you with if anyone has a working link it would be helpful!

  • great mod but it always crashes when i try to use it with reis mapmod i also have forgeloader and tmi but i cannot play with reis map mod installed at the same time as this is

  • I downloaded it and followed the directions but when i when into my world and tested it it didn’t work. I even tried the hot key.

  • with the update (the 1.5.2 update anyway) when you use a redstone circuit while in x-ray mode all of the redstone items pop off the ground. other than that awesome mod, and works wonderfully.

  • HOW IN THE HELL do you people get it to work? I have a totaly clean version of mine craft (no mcpatcher or whatever) works perfect but when i open up the jar and replace the files and delete the meta thing it stops at the loading screen :(.

  • You guys sound like you need to get Magic Launcher. Just download Forge or ModLoader and the X-Ray Mod and if you want, the Fly Mod, then once you’ve opened it, go to setup. Press add. Go to your downloads in the explorer thing it gives you. Then pick forge/modloader. press done. Then press add again. This time it will bring you to the downloads. Choose the X-ray mod. Press done. (If you got the Fly Mod then do the same.) Then enter your username in password once your done with that, and then play! Bam! You’re done!

  • So, the xray mod works fine in survival…is the fly mod supposed to let you fly in survival? because hitting F does nothing for me?

    • You need to hit f then double tap the space bar just like you would fly in Creative.

  • FlyMod_v040(1).zip Not working in 1.5.2 for me, please try harder ;o)

  • I’m flying, by holding space bar…but how do I get down?! Tried pressing F key but doesn’t deactivate flying?

    • Nevermind got it! double press space bar to activate and deactivate! sorry I’m new~

  • It doesn’t work for 1.6.1, it’s not bin anymore it’s the versions folder. With the new launcher you cant delete meta-inf because it re-downloads every time you start the launcher.

  • you’re installing this mod wrong.

    In 1.6.1, you have to go to Minecraft /.minecraft/versions and make a copy/duplicate 1.6.1 folder there but name it different for e.g. “1.6.1-modded”. Then open it and rename the JSON and JAR files same as folder name for e.g. “1.6.1-modded.jar” and “1.6.1-modded.json”. Now open 1.6.1-modded.json file with notepad and change the “id”: “1.6.1” to “id”: “1.6.1-modded” and save the file. Now open Minecraft Launcher, create new profile and select “1.6.1-modded” Minecraft version from the list and play.

    If the game runs smooth, go back to /.minecraft/versions/1.6.1-modded folder and extract the X-Ray mod class files into the jar.

    if you are still unclear about instructions check the install guide of modloader

    EDIT: make sure to delete Meta-INF as well or you will get black screen

  • i just patched the mods to mcpatcher. and that worked all fine 😉

    • yeah that happened to me too and so someone should make another link

  • I read the comments before me, Patching with MCPatcher works perfectly. Its a no brainer. As an admin that builds, the redstone finder and night vision modes are the only things I use, also the coordinates HUD is very handy 😀

  • can you install this with forge installed at the same time in 1.6.1? how?

  • I’ve noticed that in 1.6.1, when i’m using this mod, I got no sound

    • I’ve tested a few mods, it’s Modloader 1.6.1 that disables sound for some reason. If you just have the XRAY mod by itself then there’s sound

      • do you know how to fix the problem? would forge work in combination with this mod?

  • Can I Make A Suggestion can you make where you can change the keybinds for xray

  • I downloaded it exactly as told, deleted meta-inf folder and stuff. But It doesnt work. I was thinking, is this because of the new launcher? can someone plz explain? thank you!

  • Installing Mods for 1.6.2 on Mac, does not currently work 🙁 The natives files are messed up. No matter how well you install the mod, it will end up with a “ended in bad state (exit code 1)” or something!

  • I followed all the installing instructions correctly but nothing different happened to Minecraft. I tried x and r but they don’t do anything.

  • I am having an issue with whenever i turn the x-ray on it destroys my redstone setups. What do I need to do to correct this, or is there a solution?

  • is it just me or for everyone does it say “Sorry This Link Was Not Found? e.o? on adfly

  • is there any way to change what u see in the xray?
    if u know plzz leave a coment saying how

  • It isnt compatible with my zansminimap mod, I can only have on or the other cause if I try to do both minecraft opens okey but when I open a world i closes out. Help please! I REALLY want this mod!

  • I have followed the instructions for installing this on 1.6.2, I tried using it with MCPatcher, but the game fails to launch with the former and the latter just doesn’t seem to do anything at all.

    Does anyone have a foolproof way to get this mod to work? 🙁

  • Just installed minecraft 1.6.2 and when opening minecraft.jar I have no meta-inf folder to delete. done the rest but it does not work.

  • How do you do it on Windows 8?? i have a New pc and cant fint where to Write %appdata%/.minecraft/bin…. 🙁 help anyone?

    • There should be a sign at the bottom( Sorry I’m not much help, I play on a Mac, even though I have a PC.. My PC sucks xD) and you click it, there should be somewhere to type. I don’t know if your computer’s is at the bottom left, because my PC’s is, and I’ve seen it on other computers like that, so… Uh yeah.. Um, then just type it in and it should be set!

  • doesnt work for me.. i deleted the meta.inf folder .. what did i do wrong?

  • Does not seem to work on 1.6.2. The old Bin folder is not being used anymore since the new executable.

    The ‘minecraft.jar’ file is nog in the ‘Version’ folder, it has the same files that need to be replaced. However it has some check or something because everytime you start minecraft it refreshes that .jar file and the modded files are deleted.

    So since the new updated this x-ray mod it just worthless and cannot be applied.

    • Yes it can. Replace the 2013 in both instances in the .json file to 2012. Done.

  • I tried installing the fly mod, and when I get into the game and go into singleplayer my game crashes, and it says: java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: fly – I used the 1.6.2 link, I used mcpatcher, and I just wanted to share this problem. Thanks in advance!

  • anyone know how to install on 1.6.2 theres no bin just versions/1.6.2/.1.6.2.jar file and when ever i install it my launcher just delets it and replaces it with a new 1?

  • I got a little Problem. there is no bin folder in my minecraft folder. Can anyone help me?

  • I deleted the meta-inf folder but its not letting me drag the new .class into the minecraft.jar

  • None of it worked. I run on a mac so that’s probably it. But it installed correctly I just can’t enter any servers or worlds. Someone help please. And I only installed flymod.

  • I tried my x-ray and it works perfect, but, server that I play is protected with AntiBotUltra :(( Now I can’t use my x-ray cuz I see ore everywhere !!! Is there any solution ?????

  • I X-ray just worked fine, but i cant see diamond and jewel before i hit 2-3 block around them….that’s crap.

    What is my problem (sorry i’m french :p )

  • installation works, the mod works – you distinguish ore blocks -, but its display is too dark (you can not see the blocks below ; looking upper works). I tried playin’ with the graphics luminosity, to no avail.
    Has anyone encountered this, especially with Optifine present ?

  • The x-ray mod worked, but the nightlite didn’t, so all I can see are black cubes floating in space, unable to tell one ore from another. Also, fly and coordinate wouldn’t work either. odd.

  • If I use the xray vision in singleplayer, then all the redstone dust & repeaters will pop out and I need to pick them up and replace them. Is this a bug or something? And the “Redstone Finder” dosen’t work, nothing will happen when i hit R. And I can’t disable fly in Survival, nothing will happen when I hit F. I think this mod is better with the 1.6.4 version.

  • I wondering if it’s posible that add in a new version the frames of the blocks, cause when you are walking you can’t see blocks in your way or cliffs. Thanks you.

  • Evcerything works except be able to fly, i dont know hwta i need to do , i downloaded the 1.7.5 installer

  • i swear guy im not advertising this genuinly works and is SO SMOOOOOTH. its beautiful. also has easy download w/o viruses of link shorteners. much recommendationism
