When you download Meteor, you can choose one of two options:

  • Release: this version is updated less frequently, but is preferred if you don’t want to update often.
    You can download it on the official website;
  • Dev build: this version is updated frequently, can have some bugs, but often has less than the release.
    You can get this version from the official website, the #dev-builds channel in the Meteor Discord, or by compiling the source from GitHub.

Disclaimer: If your antivirus flags Meteor as dangerous, it is probably because it is an executable (JAR) file.
If you have any concerns feel free to check the source code located within this repository.



To play Minecraft, you’ll need to have the compatible version of the JRE (Java Runtime Environment).
Usually Minecraft downloads it automatically, but if it doesn’t, you should get it from Adoptium.
The current version used by Minecraft is v17.

XUnsafe cracked launchers

Avoid using closed source third-party launchers (TLauncher is a common example).
Since nobody can look at the code, the developers could insert malicious code, that could potentially harm your devices.
We do not provide support to cracked users in any way, as they do not legally own the game.
