Ok so recently there's been some mods I've wanted to get and apparently the best way is using MCPatcher (if it isn't please tell me otherwise), i need to put some files in "minecraft.jar" but I can't find minecraft.jar  I look at abunch of tutorials, ive wented to the folder files and made sure all hidden files could be seen. But every time this happens. I go to AppData, then to Roaming, then to .minecraft, then click on the bin folder, and it has several programs in there and only one folder, and the folders name is "natives" and nothing in there says "minecraft.jar" I've tried searching minecraft.jar in the search box but again nothing shows up. Please tell me if I'm doing something wrong!!!

(P.S. I'm using a Windows 7 PC)

Open start menu and type %appdata% press enter. Open up .minecraft and then bin, your minecraft.jar should be there, if it isn't then you have it saved to another location. To find this open the Minecraft launcher and click force update, it will tell you where you are saving it.
That sure is a nice forum you have there. It would be a shame if anything happened to it.

Did you remember to uncheck "hide extensions for known file types" while your changing the Hidden folders?  Windows by Default will hide file extensions (and every half computer literate user will change that setting when they first login), so your looking your probably looking at a file named "minecraft"

To find the "force update" button, you need to run mine craft, and before you login, click the "options" button above the "login" button :)
I had exactly the same problem as you guys (so frustrating)
