    Hi guys i have a little problem here tried to actually search for similar issue but nothing came up hence i'm creating the thread. So i changed the default font on my iPhone 4 with another compatible one and everything else seems to use the new font except the home screen app labels? any ideas what might be causing this?

    FontSwap doesn't fully support iOS 4.xx yet

    Provide the fonts names you used, with extensions. I'm guessing you installed something that needed to be a TTC so it wasn't substituted?

    The font names used on the iPhone 4 are:

    Helvetica.ttc
    HelveticaNeue.ttc
    LockClock.ttf
    MarkerFeltThin.ttf
    PhoneKeyCaps.ttf
    PhonepadTwo.ttf

    The font "Helvetica.ttc" is used for the app labels.

    I think the app names use Helvetica.ttc so just place another copy of the HelveticaNeue.ttc you put in System\Library\Fonts\Cache and name it Helvetica.ttc and respring.

    PS: Make sure you make a backup of the original

    That won't work. Different style fonts are required in each package.

    No. You need to use a font package intended to be "Helvetica.ttc" on an iPhone 4.

    What font are you using? Is it intended for an iPhone 4??

    im using neutraface 2.. and that would mean i need the helvetica.ttc cause i already have the helveticaneue.ttc for the same font.. it is iphone 4 compatible cause i can see it in the settings for example..
