    I found what font file to modify for the area of the Music Player where you see your song information

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    (make sure you have the same font you want for the song info currently installed)

    Open up an SSH Client
    Navigate to /System/Fonts/Cache

    Copy the following files to your hard drive:
    - Helvetica.ttf
    - HelveticaBold.ttf

    On your hard drive:
    Rename Helvetica to HelveticaNeue
    Rename HelveticaBold to HelveticaNeueBold

    Copy the renamed files to /System/Fonts/Cache
    (if any warning show up, make sure you press "overwrite")

    Restart your SpringBoard.
    You should be all set.

    Im not going to miss my one chance to tell you youre wrong.
    So...

    YOU'RE WRONG!

    READ THE WHOLE THING!

    I *clearly* mention to rename both files, then copy them back.

    Thank You =)

    This is great.

    Is there any way to increase the size of the text? It really frustrates me that the text is so small.
    I have googled for hours and can't find a hack or Cydia app that fixes this.
    It seems like such an obvious thing.
