so most of you have upgraded to iPhone 3.0..
trouble is the newest release breaks the FontSwap app as the applications are not allowed to run as root anymore..
i haven’t figured out a solution to this problem as yet, i’m sure other devs are also trying to find a workaround to this problem..
the app will be updated as soon as a workaround around the restriction is discovered..
for the time being you may switch back to the earlier method of overwriting files in the system fonts folder
the problem with this approach is that it’s a bit complicated for new users and involves the problem of SWOD if font files are ported incorrectly..
so keep a backup and keep wifi and ssh on to restore stock fonts in case something goes bad.
you *will* not need to do a device restore if you keep wifi and ssh on, even if something goes wrong. so it’s always recommended to keep those things as always on, on jailbroken devices.
EDIT: Dustin Howett [author of the app CyDelete] has suggested a fix for FontSwap for 3.0 and i’m going to release an update soon..
UPDATE: the fix has been released on Cydia. please update to FontSwap 1.4
