    This is a small, and quick guide.

    First off. Open SSH. Navigate to

    System/Library/Fonts/Cache/

    Now, before we do anything else.

    You must back up two font files.

    -Helvetica.ttf
    -HelveticaBold.ttf

    Save them somewhere on your PC, if you want to put the font back to normal, then use them.

    Now, find the font you want to download.

    There are many fonts that have been made for the iPhone here: http://macthemes2.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=16788869&p=1

    There is many being made aswell.

    Some more fonts here: http://macthemes2.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=16788685&p=1
    Even more fonts can be found by searching google.


    Now, once you have your font files, simply drop them into System/Library/Fonts/Cache/

    Respring and you are done.

    OK, i have the dicot medium font but i want it just on the springboard. I know you can do it with winterboard but Im having some problems. The problems are when I try to add the font into GCFontCache.plist. I keep messing up there.

    can someone please give me a small guide or help me out?

    Maniac,

    I have more fonts if you want them? Got them all from MACThemes.
    I also have tested them out (all of them) and made screenshots, i can give them to you

    edit: I see youve got a link leading straight to MACThemes. Wouldn't it be better if you just post all the fonts in here?

    Mario.
