    Not yet. Its pulling from fonts installed in the phone in System/Library/Fonts. There must be somewhere where the iPhone is seeing which font to use. Just gotta figure out which file is telling it which font to use.

    just a thought but can't u just replace the font with another font file but just renamed in the original font file.

    for example: yourcustomfont.ttf gets renamed to helvetica.ttf . then replace the helvetica.tff in the iphone. wouldn't this method work?

    but I guess for the people who are just wanting to change just one specific font for one part of the phone, this wouldn't work considering the iPhone uses that same font for something else.

    I'll actually try what I just said above later tonight and post my findings.

    So I did it.. I tried changing the LockClock.tff font with another one. After reseting my phone, the apple logo was all that appeared and the loading image was all there was. Oh, and my phone just kept buzzing.... iPhone is now f*cked up... I'ts currently restoring with iTunes now. -_-.. All my dam mods down the drain. Oh well, I was thinking of changing my theme anyway. lol

    So there ya go... don't try to change your fonts people. -_-" ..

    Actually, I'm going to try it one more time. I'm not gonna go for the lockclock.tff anymore, I'm gonna try the helvetica one or something.... Be back in a couple of minutes to post my findings

    I renamed about 15 of them with my custom font, but nothing happened after loading them and resetting the phone. i did LockClock, and helvetica, all of htem. also i hope this is stupid of me for saying, but i noticed you wrote tff as the font extension, are you using that? because it's supposed to be ttf. if you used the other one that might be why it got jacked.

    Good news itzwill, did you manage to change the fonts? Is it something related to Cache folder and CGFontCache.plist file?

    I looked through every file on my iPhone and could not find where I can change the system font. No clue about Helvetica, I could not even replace Helvetica.ttf with HelveticaBold.ttf (I changed HelveticaBold.ttf to Helvetica.ttf and overwrote it, iPhone detected that change and closed the applications that use Helvetica font)
    Anyone has any progress?

    Default original fonts
    Hi,

    I have a Thai version of the Iphone and they replaced the font with a Thai one, so all french characters are replaced by Thai character. Does any one can send me the original fonts ?


    Thanks

    the font details are not in the name but in the metadata stored in the font file itself. Kinda like how iTunes handles song data, you can edit the song details from within iTunes and name the mp3 file something completely different.

    you have to find a way to "RIP" the (.ttf) fonts you want and recreate them with a file name the iphone uses.
