so, i recently tried to install zombe's flymod, and now, my minecraft launcher is stuck at the "Minecraft Updating, Done Loading" phase with the loading bar not quite at the end. i tried erasing my old minecraft.jar and downloading a new one, but it is still stuck. so i took out flymod, tried it again, still no progress. so then i tried to launch it in the browser. still nothing. i have a mac, so im not sure if that might have something to do with it. but im really stuck, kinda mad, and i really just wanna play again. please help me!
I'm having the same problem. Right now my minecraft won't even load, tried deleting everything and let it download fresh. Only problem is it only downloads the Bin folder, nothing else.
Anyways I found a solution to this problem. I just kept the minecraft folder as a folder and put .jar on the end of it. So instead of compressing the folder in a zip and then making it a jar I just left it as a folder and added .jar onto the end. For some reason it works, at least for me.
