    FontSwap can actually be found under this source in installer: kankon.org/kankon


    or if you install manually, for those having problems, after doing the following commands:
    /bin/chmod -R 755 /Applications/FontSwap.app

    /bin/chmod +s /Applications/FontSwap.app/FontSwap

    make sure that the following plist has permission set to 755:
    System/Library/Fonts/CGFontCache.plist

    no extra fix for 114 but don't try to add your own fonts. Your phone will crash and you'll have to restore

    I Thanked you for the info - it works fine.

    I made a copy of the file /System/Library/Fonts/CGFontCache.plist so if anything goes wrong I will just replace the file with my original copy.

    I big thank you also to the developer of this little application.

    FontSwap is no longer available via installer.

    You will need to directly install via SSH.

    Download the program from this thread.....page 4 post number 51

    to get it to work. It is firmware-independent and created by Skylar. The directions I posted are his from ipodtouchfans. Hope this helps anyone who is having trouble.

    I've done this multiple times (including last night when I restored to get customize how I wanted it)

    All things change, system fonts, lock clock font, and notes font.
    how exactly do i "setuid"?

    I just installed fontswap on my 1.1.4 manually. At first it did not change the fonts, what I did was give it 4777 permission with winscp and after that it worked great. This is the same as doing this:
    setuid
    /bin/chmod +s /Applications/FontSwap.app/FontSwap

    only from winscp without going through terminal. Hope this helps.
