    I'm only getting it to work for LockClock and Notes, no System font replacement. Anyone else? :confused:

    yeah system replacement isnt working for me either.
    Now when i type a password in instead of making the letter a little filled in circle (after typing the next letter) its a big block in the way :/

    I haven't used fontswap, but when I had my 3GS, I manually went into /system/library/fonts/cache/ and then switched out the Helvetica (system font) with the font of my choice. However, that was using a .ttf file, and I went in and tried to do it again, but it looks like the iOS4 on this iP4 is using a .ttc, which is an entire collection of fonts for Helvetica, versus one font for bold, italic, thin, etc. I'm guessing maybe that's why fontswap is not working.

    Same with me but I actually find the blocks pretty neat. I like them.

    Welcome to a couple months ago when we had this same problem on the 3G and 3G S. The system font is now in a ttc format which includes many fonts.

    Decoding of this format and reencoding with your altered fonts needs to be figured out.
