    hello all, is there a tweak or app that allows you to change the system fonts and is compatable with iOS 5.1.1. I remember font swamp working a year or two ago. Not sure if it still does. Thanks for the help.

    BytaFont is awesome. It supports 5.1.1 and there are a TON of fonts to choose from. You can search for fonts via the bytafont app itself or via Cydia. It's great.

    I love checking out new fonts. Been using Ubuntu titling forever now but I'm getting bored. I just looked up avenir but I only see it for fontswap. Where can I get it for bytafont? Any idea?

    I know the repo I found it on, but I know it's not a repo that the mods would like. I'll PM you.

    I believe I found it but its asking to install an available upgrade-- GUI-GPG-SEC "Required Setup Configuration file"

    Is it smart to install this? Only using this repo for the Avenir font.

    btw, it really sucks that iPhoneruler hasn't ported this font--yet.

    I replied, I think the font your looking at is for an older font program. As for the GUI thing, I think it's just something for their repo.

    I noticed the Avenir font is missing some font styles. It's not apparent in most apps but I noticed the font isn't applied in Instagram and Sparrow.

    I meant the actual font styles (i.e Bold & Italics). If you open up an app that uses one of those styles, you'll notice the stock Helvetica font is still used.

    Hmm, I'll actually have to look. I haven't noticed it. :/
