the next version on FontSwap is now available on Cydia. it fixes the application for iPhone OS 3.0
many thanks to BigBoss and Dustin Howett for their contribution towards this release. the update also contains a few minor changes, that increase it’s usability for iPod Touch users.
IMP: you may notice some customs fonts will be not show up right [there's a slight shift in the vertical position], this is because the iPhone OS 3.0 fonts have different font metrics compared to iPhone 2.0 fonts and the fonts ported for 2.0 will not appear proper on 3.0, please contact the custom font authors for a fix of the custom fonts.
you can get many great fonts on the MacThemes forums, you can also request fonts you need over at that forum http://macthemes2.net/forum/viewforum.php?id=24
NOTE: to fix vertical shift of *Default* fonts on iPhone 3.0 copy fonts from
/Applications/FontSwap.app/StockFonts3/ to /System/Library/Fonts/Cache/
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
