    Default [Guide] Change your iPhone 4 System Fonts
    Fontswap doesn't work for system fonts but you can still change them!

    1. SSH into your phone and navigate to /System/Library/Fonts/Cache
    2. Rename HelveticaNeue.ttc to HelveticaNeue.ttc.backup
    3. Copy the HelveticaNeue.ttc font file from one of the folders linked below to /System/Library/Fonts/Cache
    4. Respring your phone and you're done!

    Warning - if you don't know how to use SSH do not mess around with this.
    These fonts have been formatted for iPhone 4 use only.

    There are 16 different fonts in the link below.

    Do you know if downloading an old font for fontswap and doing those same steps will work on a 3GS on 4.0.1?
    We're all just toymakers in the game of life.

    Will this method work for iPad too?

    I found a font from iPhoneruler called Sansation that I want. It says its (iOS4 / iPad) compatible. Does that mean its "iPhone 4" compatible? I want to install it on my iPhone 4, but I don't want to screw up my phone by mistake.

    yeah,you're right.

    The fonts have to be formatted specifically for the iPhone 4 resolution so don't try this with just random font files.
