1. Go to our texture packs section and find a pack which you want to download. Try the ones which have been recently added or updated. In this example we will be using Faithful PE. It’s basically a high definition version of the Minecraft textures (64×64 resolution instead of 16×16).

2. Download and install ES File Explorer (or another file manager of your choice). Open the application and go to “Download”.

5. Select where to extract the file. In this case, we will select the second option: “Current path”. Then press “OK”.

 

6. Once the extracting process has been completed there should be a new folder in “Download”. In this case it is called vanilla.

7. Long-tap on the vanilla folder to select it. Then press “Copy” in the bottom menu.
