I have been trying to figure this out for days now. A world of mine that I made a very long time ago in MCPE (back when glass, bricks and shears were unlimited and worlds were limited to 256 blocks in size--can't remember which version I created the world in) somehow got frozen in time. I'm trying to fix that without enabling cheats so that I can still earn achievements in the world. I tried NBTedit and NBTExplorer on the level.dat file, but both have failed. Nothing else I've tried has worked either. Please help.

Sadly, you have to use cheats on it to fix the time cycle.

Fix anything that could've went wrong in the world. Here are some commands to help you:

/gamerule dodaylightcycle true
/alwaysday false
  • A note. If your world was created with cheats disabled, open your game to LAN and enable cheats from the in-game menu. A quick and easy way of going about this.

  • @GipsyD you shouldn't need LAN on to enable cheats
