    Hello,
    I tried messing around with FontSwap without luck, because of the 3.0 incompatibility. Now, when I try to change fonts by replacing the Helvetica.ttf and HelveticaBold.ttf + Restarting the device, the font stays the same.

    Anyone has this issue and what is the fix?

    Well that makes no sense...so if you replace Helvetica.ttf and HelveticaBold.ttf with another font and replace them in System/Library/Fonts/Cache (I think) and respring they have to change... try this.

    I tried this yesterday, and yes it works flawlessly. Idk why it woun't work on fontswap, But if you do it manually, it'll work. Good Luck.

    Yes it really makes no sense and I'm totally stuck:

    Here is the font that I have which can't get replaced. It's almost as if my iPod would use another font as the default one, instead of Helvetica.

    I believe that is the font you get if you check the Saurik theme that comes with Winterboard...hm a while back someone else had this problem...don't remember what the fix was. Go into Winterboard, change the theme to something else (not Saurik and not what you have) respring then reinstall Winterboard (that's just a complete guess btw).
