    I decided to try to change the font on my 4.2.1 iPhone 4 to the uber-awesome Neutraface, but I dunno what I'm doing wrong.

    I have SSH access and followed the directions by backing up the Helvetica and HelveticaNeue ttc files and then copying over the modified fonts, but no success.

    I can get the lockclock to work just fine, just not the system fonts.

    Is it a 4.2.1 thing? I can change the system fonts on my wife's iPhone 4 on 4.1 at will.

    Hello there,

    I had the same problem and ended up putting my phone in a bootloop trying to SSH fonts. I found a really easy way to get fonts installed though, just go into Cydia and go into the Fonts folder and get the ios4 fonts. It should install Bytafont automatically including the selected font. Bytafont is an app that lets you change fonts over as you wish, and you change fonts to be only set to certain areas such as Lock Screen, System etc.

    Have fun! :D
