Minecraft - How To Turn Villager Zombies Back to Villagers

Thank you @Dinnerbone for the hints! When zombies 'infect' villagers and turn the testificates into villager-zombies, you can turn the back by splashing them with a weakness potion and then right-clicking on them with a golden apple (the regular golden apple, not the shiny purple variety).

My villagers, tranformed with this technique, turned back to zombie
villagers after a while, without being attacked by any other zombies...

Do anybody know why it is happening...? I did a Square shape building with
15 doors and a roof, with a torch above every door, of course a torch
inside the so builded construction, i have even planted some wheat...

Result: they turn back to zombies every time...and i am running out of

Any idea...?

I am in 1.8.3 no cheats server

golden apple on them?

If you built a village and populated it with Villagers you got from Zombie
Villagers, better play on Hard mode, because then zombies will always make
Villagers back to Zombie ones and you can cure them again.

Author Luke Pigwalker ( ago)
Zombie villagers are the best zombies ever (apart from zombie pigmen)

In my experience, the easiest way to capture a zombie villager, is to make
a hollow tube, 3 blocks high, 3 blocks wide and 6 blocks long. In both
ends, you put a door. Make the zombie villager follow you, run in to the
tube in one end, run out the other end and close both doors. To prevent the
zombie escape (in case it breaks the door), just place any block at floor
level in front of the door.

Author Carlitos PVP ( ago)
Let me say i did what you did but will the turn into different types of
villagers of just the pink one ?

Author Joel Lara ( ago)
If you play on Easy Difficulty, then they never get turned to Zombies. Only
on Hard and Hardcore Mode, they turn to Zombies every time. and on Normal
Mode, only half the time do they turn to Zombies...

Author Nathan Daniel ( ago)
It's not a purple or blue apple... It's call a golden apple for regular and
a god apple or enchanted apple for the enchanted effect apple

Author Ultra Steve ( ago)
how do you give him the golden apple

So you'd have to take him into your home, trap him in a room with no doors,
and look after him until he get's well again? hmm... never thought
Minecraft would have a moral choice system...
