    DoubleH,

    When you download and unzip fontswap, make sure that you are only putting in the folder with the app, not the folder with the folder of the app inside of it. To check, open the folder you are trying to add. If it has another folder inside that says "fontswap", only add that folder to the applications folder via ssh. Then, there is a chmod you need to do via terminal to make it work on 1.1.4. Just search the MMI forum for "fontswap chmod," and you should be able to find it.

    SSH into the phone via Winscp. Then, remove the fontswap.app folder and place into the applications folder on the iphone. From there, you need to look for the chmod post in these forums, and input the commands through terminal.

    Anyone know why font swap wouldn't be changing my font? I've restarted, but can't figure out what else to do.

    Set permissions on FontSwap (inside the FontSwap.app folder) to 6755, set all other files inside that folder to 755. Make sure the permissions on the FontSwap.app folder is also set to 755.

    This is how I got mine working.

    Also check that your iPhone Fonts folder and the Cache folder inside it also have permissions set to 755
