    Well, so i was looking how to change the fonts on my ipod, and saw this

    basically says that smeone will be porting fonts to the ipod, and then i was a post by Manic Nimrod.

    I used his font, Dicotme, and replaced Helvetica.ttf from /system/fonts/cache.

    now my springboard wont show up, i tried respringing and rebooting.

    am i screwed and have to restore or can i save the situation somehow?

    i have a backup of the font i replaced

    I think you're best bet would be to restore.


    Changing the font has always caused people problems.

    If you restore, and backup the old font, you should be fine.

    i changed back the font to the original using iFunBox and it just worked.
    Like 3 seconds after i changed the font, i was looking at my lockscreen [HAPPY FACE]
