You cannot detonate it since it is in creative mode. Just like how you can't craft or use the furnace in creative.

BTW, to get pocketinveditor, you need android. Also, its reely annoying because i cant jailbreak my iphone without a password…3<

As of so far, it seem that minecraft does not want you to use tnt in creative mode....there is no way to detonate it yet without flint n steel.

They don't add flint and steel in creative because then people can easily go to the nether

no becuase you can not just dig strate down you will hit bedrock and if you are in crateive mode you can brake it and then you hit the end of the world doing down so there you go

Yep. it was dead scary! I was digging an underground house and I thought "One block deeper" I dug too far, and ended up making a funeral for Stevie 1 and Stevie 2 (I fell down the hole while trying to bury it)
Guest said: 12th Mar 2013, ID #263135 | REPORT
I was diiging too far also. In creative youvcan fly through the hole. If you fall through catch yourself fast
Guest said: 19th May 2013, ID #283936 | REPORT
you can go to the nether reactors work on survival
Guest answered: Added 25th Sep 2012, ID #541106

yes but it is hard to create tnt because you must kill creepers which i can do by the way. Although i have made tnt on survival and killed a load of creepers and i was like ha creeper now you know what its like to be blown up. I also showed a skeleton what it feels like to be shot with a bow and arrow
Guest said: 7th Jun 2013, ID #288551 | REPORT
But y would you make nether portal when its so hard to get obsidien in survival mode
Guest said: 2nd Aug 2013, ID #302025 | REPORT
What I did was get pocket inveditor and spawned a creeper where I was. Since I was close to the tnt, when it detonated itself it also detonated the tnt. All you have to do is go to "edit entities" in pocket inveditor and spawn 1 creeper. Your location is the default coordinates so you don't have to type that in.
I started doing that a lot, but eventually it just stopped spawning in the creeper. Sometimes I ended up with a bunch of cows insead of a creeper.

Guest said: 29th Nov 2013, ID #323163 | REPORT
Minecraft PE doesn't have the nether, I've made the portal and used flint and steel on it and nothing happened, I also tried lava, yes this was survival mode I just duplicated obsidian and lava buckets bc there was only one lava flow on the map -as of 0.7.6-

Um no you have to go on survival and build up to tnt and flint so you out of luck man see ya later

Guest answered: Added 26th Oct 2012, ID #546901
Hate the non-detonatable TNT on Minecraft PE. Before it was released, the guys who made it showed them blowing stuff up in creative mode, probably to rub it in our faces.
Guest answered: Added 30th Oct 2012, ID #547760
Next update adds the nether, or so it's rumored. At that point they will probably add flint and steel to creative as well, since there wouldn't be a reason not to anymore.

Minecraft will release flint and steel later on. In the meantime, detonate a TNT in survival. Make TNT with 5 gunpowder(from creepers) and 4 sand blocks. Also, get flint and steel with flint and iron ingot. They are both t the crafting table so don't worry.

No there is not a possible way to light TNT on creative mode. The only way to destroy things is with the other blocks, or the weapons given.
Guest answered: Added 26th Dec 2012, ID #559459
I know it is not possible in creative mode but, you can jailbreak your device but it is probably dangerous to the hard drive

To blow up the tnt (or light it), simply set the tnt on the ground, (or wherever you are setting it), and place a redstone torch next to the tnt it will than light the tnt and kaboom. Problem solved

Someone said you had to fall on it. Yeah... No. It's probably better to wait for 10000. Years for the update instead of installing this useless jailbreak thing. I have an iOS no duh it won't work.
Guest answered: Added 20th Feb 2013, ID #572283
You cannot
Guest answered: Added 28th Feb 2013, ID #574110
There is no possible way to use TNT in Creative mode. So far it can be used as a decorative block on Creative mode only. They also do not have flint and steel because people would try to create the nether portal, and complain that it wouldn't work. This of course means that there is no nether possibility yet. Redstone is useless on the iOS version because it is a very challenging accomplishment for Mojang. Therefore, eventually, it may take some time before any redstone related things are made. Also, this is the same reason why buckets don't exist.

Guest answered: Added 24th Mar 2013, ID #578498
If you are using Minecraft PE on an Android device, you can download PocketInvEditor to change your world from creative to survival to use the TNT on what you needed and then change it back to creative. You can even edit your inventory on survival through the app or even replace certian blocks with other blocks. And then there's alway modding your game.
Guest answered: Added 2nd Apr 2013, ID #580588
U dnt need TNT! If you want flat ground use a seed.
Guest answered: Added 10th Jun 2013, ID #591816
If you play minecraft pe in android download UTK app download a mod free crafting,you can craft anything you want in survival mode

Guest answered: Added 13th Aug 2013, ID #600618
It's not possible to light TNT in creative mode (version 0.7.2)unless you're Jailbroken and installed a mod called flint n steel in creative and it replaces you hoe with flint n steel and a hoe combined. You use MCPEpatch to install it.
Guest answered: Added 7th Nov 2013, ID #607755
I have 4 nether reactors on one world and 3 on the other(on survival)

How do you go to the nether whithout using feel and steel
Guest answered: Added 9th Jan 2014, ID #613883
Use 'lava'. Place the TNT on the lava flow and it explodes.
Guest answered: Added 11th Mar 2014, ID #619500
A-Place on lava flow some may destroy but then become lighted.
B-Just use flint and steel by holding it and clicking it.
Hope this helps! =D
