Due to my Netbook giving me the finger (not literally) I have to postpone the Windows tutorial until i can get it to listen and until I am fluent in Windows Minecraft. SMALL CHANCE THAT THE 1.5 HAS SOME NEW FOLDERS AND ****. SO THIS GUIDE MIGHT BE OUTDATED TILL I FEEL LIKE UPDATING IT XD
I had originally posted a download link in the Texture pack section but I have taken that down due to legal issue of redistribution. Anyways i decided to show people how to get their [16x] Default Texture pack and including mob skins and items etc. by posting this tutorial. This tutorial will show you how to get to your minecraft.jar, extract it, take the necessary folders and .png files and install it as a texture pack for backup/editing purposes.
To get to your minecraft.jar and extract a minecraft folder from it:
Please Click and Open:
From here you want to RIGHT CLICK on your minecraft.jar file and open with a extracting program (Archive Utility)
This should then give you a minecraft folder.
What you want to do now is create a NEW Folder in a new Finder window (Location doesn't matter unless you want to install it which is clarified below. Then what you do is open your minecraft folder (that you got from extracting the.jar file) and drag the stuff you need, which is listed in "What your should Texture Pack contain for Full Editing", into your new folder.
IF you managed to drag the stuff you needed into the new folder then the folder will have everything that your original default texture pack had. Now you can edit it!
YOU CAN DELETE THE MINECRAFT FOLDER (And i recommend) CREATED WHEN YOU EXTRACTED minecraft.jar BUT DON'T DELETE THE FOLDER WHERE YOU DRAGGED YOU ITEMS INTO! (Or else you will have to do everything again)

First make sure you COMPRESS YOUR contents (Not the Folder containing all the textures folders but all the things them selves. IF you are doing this right, you should at least compress 14 items.Once you compress it you should get a .zip file. Name it what you want to name it and follow these steps.
Please Click and Open:
Then drag the .zip file into there.

Please offer some advice on how I can improve. I already know this stuff. I want to know if you managed to learn what I already know, or if you haven't or are confused. Please also point out any grammer error or typos. English is not my first language.
