    Is there any way to change fonts without using BytaFont? I saw the Avenir font in one of the homescreen threads and really want to use it system-wide, but it's not supported by BytaFont.

    I can actually find Avenir in the system fonts using iFile, and I can copy it...I just don't know where to put it so that I can change it (either in Bytafont or another tweak, etc.)

    Can anyone help?

    An interesting question.

    I dont like bytafont as it replaces the original iOS fonts.

    You then have to re download the iOS fonts to get them back !

    No you don't, just hit 'Restore original' and it's back.

    BTW Blasto2236 i have Avenir working fine through Bytafont.

    The Avenir in Cydia uses a different app and I can't find it when searching inside BytaFont. Where can I get it?

    I've read something wrong when researching bytafont then.

    Thank you for clarifying.

    ;)

    Oh ok I don't have that repo that's why. Any chance you can upload it to Dropbox or somewhere?

    Just found a problem with this Avenir, the font doesn't seem to change on the lock screen clock whilst using Forecast or in Notification center.

    Did you ever figure this problem out? I have the same problem with forecast. Weird thing is I can change the font of the lockscreen clock fine, but when I install forecast, the LS clock font reverts back to stock Helvetica. Is forecast pulling the font from somewhere else?
