1. Download ModLoader in addition to Infitools. Also download the ItemSprite API or Minecraft Forge, depending on the version.
2. Open up your minecraft.jar using an archiver like WinRar and delete the META-INF folder.
3. Place the contents of ModLoader, Minecraft Forge, and/or ItemSprite API inside the minecraft.jar
4. Take the Infitools Zip file and put it under .minecraft/mods. Alternatively you could place everything inside the Infitools Zip in your minecraft jar; either one works.
