In a couple of threads I've seen some really nice looking fonts being used in the UI but Fontswap in Cydia Does not seem to work when downloaded. Is there anything I'm doing wrong or are there any other alternatives to Fontswap that will be easy to use? Thanks! :)

Try an application called BytaFont. Super easy to use, and you can just download different fonts from cydia and the app itself. :) great stuff!

Know of any fonts on Bytafont that are close to Papyrus? I am currently using Abuse font, but I don't like it too much.

I was under the immpression that this can be acccessed from sprintomize 2
You can, but you are limited to the fonts in Springtomize. BytaFont has a much wider selection. Having said that, though, having both is best as if you have the font changed to one in BytaFont, you can still access the font color change options via Springtomize. :D

I have Springtomize. It will only allow me to change the Icon Fonts to Papyrus. Wasn't able to find a setting in Springtomize that would allow me to change the fonts system wide.

used Skia back in iOS 4. it's not in the fonts folder in cydia anymore. something to do with the licensing. now using istok web.
