    I was wondering, is there any way to change the font via WinterBoard? like placing the font file inside the theme folder somewhere... or didn't they still implement that? I how to change the font manually but it would be cool and faster to change it via winterboard.

    Hmm... you could just downloaad a new font from Cydia, ssh into your device and copy the font into the Themes folder. Dunno if that'll work, but I say give it a try!

    If you want to replace the Default System Font:

    1. Make an Info.plist in a Theme Folder.
    2. In it, make a key "Font-Name-Helvetica". The value is what ever font you want it to be.
    3. Activate in WinterBoard.

    Some time ago, I saw a package in Cydia I think was made by spoonforknife, which added several WinterBoard Themes which changed the font for you.

    Yea i saw that package but it just change the fonts from the icons, not the system font.

    I also tried what you sad but i couldn't got it working, here is what i did.

    I tried a few variations of the code but still wasn't able to get it working.Hmm i tried it with Helvetica and it worked, so i guess i can't use it with LockClock font. Thx in advance for the help.



    Nvm I got it working i just had to change "LockClock" to ".Lock Clock"

    OK then. Try experimenting with the Saurik Theme included with Winter Board. That changes every single bit of text.

    lets hope it works. But nothing so far ):, i guess it just supports the original fonts i mean fonts with names that already came on it.
