FontSwap Update – Fixes Default Alignment Issues

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

FontSwap The update to version 1.5 of FontSwap does a few things. First off, it adds a new Restore Default Fonts option which allows you to change all fonts back to default at once (instead of having to go into each option and change them back to default one at a time). It also fixes the default alignment issues. Now, when you go back to the default system font, the badge, time…etc are all aligned correctly. YAY! [Read more…]

Fix For FontSwap Alignment Problems on 3.0 Firmware

FonwSwapJust a quick update about the problems we were having with the alignment of fonts on 3.0 firmware. The other day I noticed that when I set my system font back to default with FontSwap, the alignment was off on my badges, clock, toggle switches and more. Even after uninstalling the app I still had problems. I figured out that if I used the stock font from 3.0 firmware and SSH’d it in the “default” folder of FontSwap it would fix the problem. I’m assuming that the developer just left the 2.0 firmware font in the default folder instead of using the 3.0 font. If you need the original you can download it here:

FontSwap Font: DroidSans (Google Android Font)

FontSwapNow that FontSwap is working for firmware 3.0 I tried it out for the first time. I’ve never really changed the font of my iPhone in the past but I thought I would today. The first thing I noticed was there were only a few options that came with the app so I started looking in Cydia for some more. There were a few more but a few sources weren’t working and I just wasn’t satisfied with the choices. Then a local tweep (twitter acquaintance) posted a screenshot of his iPhone with the Google Android font. I asked him where he got it and he pointed me to the MacThemes forum. Someone who was porting over fonts had recent done the Android font. You can download it here: [Read more…]

Work Around for FontSwap on 3.0 Firmware

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

FontSwap Those of you who use FontSwap, an application that allows you to change the fonts on your iPhone or iPod Touch, probably know that the app has not been updated to work on the 3.0 firmware. When I tested FontSwap on an iPhone running 3.0, it did not crash the device (as some claim it has done) however, the fonts did not change. I did some searching and found a way to make it work manually. This method requires ssh and overwriting of files so, make sure you are comfortable with both those things before you begin. The instructions below were originally written by dazzastark (via modmyi)…I did make a few modifications to them. There is a link to the original post below the instructions. [Read more…]
