As a rule, developers create various modifications (improvements or additions) for games that have received high user ratings in order to simplify the passage or add some interesting details to the game. Today we will tell you how to install mod apk on Android.

How to download and install modded apps?

Mods (from Lat. Modificatio, i.e. change) for games are applications mostly written by third-party developers or individual amateurs, who use specially developed programs. People usually distribute mods written for fans by fans free of charge, either unlike add-ons to existing game created by the developers of original game or by third party Company on behalf of the developer.

Therefore, if you decide to download mods for your favorite games not from Google Play, then first you need to go to the main settings of your smartphone, open “Security” menu and check the “Unknown sources” line in “Device Administration” section.

Additional instructions

Then download the required .apk file from proven website like and move it to the SD card of your Android device. Now open any file manager, for example, ES Explorer or a standard file manager. Open “Download” folder, find your file in it and click on it:

After that, a window will open in which it is necessary to select “Install” and then proceed according to the proposed installation instructions. Sometimes, if you need Internet connection to install a specific mod, you may be prompted to use some of the smartphone’s functions – just allow it.

In addition to the installation itself, many applications need a cache – additional files that are required for the application to work correctly. Such applications are located in the archive together with the .apk file. The cache size can reach several GB. Be sure to free the needed amount of space before app or game installation.

Troubleshooting if errors appear when starting the game

If at the start of the BL you see an error like the one noted earlier, then double-click “Ignore” – the game should load and work. Such a message means that author did not write uncritical value in one of the files, which does not in any way affect the performance of both components.
Also, some additions (in particular, alternative routes for the same character) may be incompatible with each other, so one of them will need to be removed to fix the failure.

What to do if the mod is unstable (freezes, crashes)

When installing modifications, it is important to understand that they are created by enthusiasts, so stability problems are inevitable, especially for global mods like replacing pictures or adding new characters. There is only one solution – wait for the developer to release the corrected version.
