Showstopper how did you change your font that's really sweet!
09-12-2010, 10:00 AM #922
I downloaded the Blade2 font from...
Blade 2 Font | dafont.com
Change the font name to Helvetica.ttc and HelveticaNeue.ttc, install into system/library/font/cache...be sure and backup the stock helvetica font.
Then I went into the widget clock and weather and changed the font to Helvetica.
Try this at your own risk...I can only tell you what worked for me.
And this was added by Tristan...
HOW TO CUSTOMIZE FONT without FontSwap
1. Go to
iPhoneRuler | Category Archives: Fonts
and find an iPhone4 COMPATIBLE Font. There are 37 pages and those that are compatible have a little blue/white iOS 4 in the upper right corner.
2. Download the .zip file and unzip
3. SSH to /System/Library/Fonts/Cache and RENAME the Native Fonts in the folder that you are going to replace. I always just put a "1" in front of the file name so it moves to the top of the folder.
4. Drop in the files from the newly unzipped folder, they are already named properly.
5. Repring and all fonts will be changed.
6. DO NOT close your WinSCP or SSH manager until AFTER you get a successful respring.
WARNING: Make SURE you are replacing the correct file...there are files with .ttc and .ttf with same names so be careful.
NOTE: If you get a non-compatible font and your iPhone keeps rebooting. You will see the Apple logo then the spinning loader icon will show. When the loader icon is up, delete the Helvetica file you just dropped in and remove the "1" from the original file, renaming it back to its original status. Do this for all files that you changed/dropped in. It will only work if the loader icon is showing so if the apple goes white again, stop and wait, letting WinSCP keep attempting to reconnect until it does so.

Thanks ShowStopper for adding the WARNING.
As I once tried that and ended in an infinite boot loop,but fixed with the help of iPhone Explorer cuz I made a backup first.
Remember people,try this at your own risk,ShowStopper isn't responsible if you screw things up,he just shared helpfull info on how to change the font manually,BACKUP FIRST.
I was thinking on the new LASER ANIMATED LOCKSCREEN:
Why limit the small framed wallpaper to just one image?...
Why not making a slideshow?...
A lockscreen that shows the actual wallpaper in the background,and a slideshow in the frame...
And better yet,why not add some........!!!....???
That will be awesome.
DONE:but not now,let me save the best for later.

When I first tried this, I was stuck in the boot loop as well (spelled the file incorrectly) an thought OH ****! Thank goodness for ssh! Lol

Sorry that yesterday I wasn't with you guys...and girls...
Don't know what happened,don't know if mmi was down,or AT&T network was problematic.But I couldn't enter at mmi.But was strange cuz I was able to enter to google...???...
This morning I saw you guys was able to enter and posted comments,why I couldn't ? Don't know.
Also,I know I'm delayed in the next update,it's just things are slowing me down.Work/daughter school/house/...and I have to finish my dedicated server website,where I'm going to post themes and mods.
But I promise that I will update the theme with more skins for native apps and one more HTML goodie.

Looks good ArDott, I would remove the app names so that you could see the wallpaper better, otherwise to blasts point it might need more transparency, looks good

It's wacky that jailbreak me.com has been installing diff versions of cydia. My cydia has the @2x icon. Some people don't.

Hey, anyone know if you can add the year on the lockscreen so it says something like 13, September, 2010 or something?

I want to donate for this theme but just want to know a few things???? I downloaded the Alien Lockscreens and Wallpapers and like them, but I would like to use some of those images to customize my personal screen without the slider bar and logo. Will I be able to get those raw images upon donation?
