    You can add the fonts (iPhone prepped) yourself , just SSH to "var/mobile/library/Fontswap/Packages" and just throw the font into its own folder using the respective directories for the type of font.

    I'm using the Simpsons font on my phone with Buuf2 theme and its teh great.

    i want to know too, if anyone got other fonts to work...


    "Don't add in more fonts yet. Some work, some, for a seemingly random reason cause a spinning wheel of death. Pulling fonts from my mac, I couldn't find any common denominators.

    Then there are the fonts that work some places, but not all. Like Comic Sans MS. It will work in notes andon the lock screen, but if you set it as your system font, it will cause the Spinning Wheel of Death."

    I auume that means chanfging the file names of the fonts to what the stock fonts would be ie: helvetica for system font. I also believe you need to change the name of the font within the font file as well. If you open the ttf file of the modded fonts, the font istelf appears to be the font desired but the name displayed is the stock font name. I have papyrus for all my fonts, I used a free trial version of fontcreator to mod the ttf file.

    But isnt that the whole point of font swap? It automates that process.

    You can't just copy & paste any font off your PC:

    Either throw a request at someone who's doing the process or knock yourself out .

    Yes it does, but you need a font to swap too. Think of the same idea as themes for Winterboard. FontSwap is packaged with a few fonts. I personally am a bit mental about things "matching". FontSwap comes with papyrus as a system font, but I wanted it for my lock screen clock and notes too.

    I understand that there will eventually be additional fonts that will be able to be downloaded from Cydia but in teh meantime, I fixed it for myself.

    Honestly I love this app. Kudos to the developer. Also if you add the xsellize source into cydia, they have a font mega pack for font swap you can install which adds TONS of more fonts.

    I was hoping for a 'pack' of fonts that are ready for the iPhone! It's just a pain to load it completely to see how it looks. Then again, it's better than SWOD...

    I have xsellize on my Cydia, but I have yet to find any font packs. Could you either post or PM me the source you are using so I can make sure I have the right one??

    You need to be a registered user on teh xsellize forums and there are instructions on adding their Cydia repo. it involves adding your forums registered name and password to the repo address.

    Download the "Defused" font (I believe it can be had at ispazio repo) from Cydia and use FontSwap to apply it.
