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.

Agree'd, Bytafont works fine in 5.1.1. Using Avenir Light font right now. >__>b Purdy lol.

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.
