How can I mine redstone ore?

    According to the Minecraft wiki, it’s currently impossible to mine as of version 0.7.1. It can only be destroyed.

    Since 0.8.0 build 2, you can now obtain redstone by mining redstone ore with an iron or diamond pickaxe like a normal ore.

    It is currently impossible to mine redstone ore in Minecraft PE. Just wait until a new update comes out!

    You cannot mine redstone. I guess it would probably be just decoration and useless to mine. Try waiting for an update where redstone is actually useful. There is no possible way to mine the redstone and you would be wasting your picks. You should wait until the next update.

    You can now mine redstone in the new Minecraft PE update, but the only things you can use redstone to make is clocks, powered rails, and compasses.

    For each past version you couldn’t have mined redstone without it being destroyed, no matter what material pick axe you used. However, in update 0.8.1. you are able you mine redstone and craft it into clocks, compasses and powered rails. In the new update you still cannot make a redstone block from redstone, so to make that i guess we just have to wait. 🙁
