How to change the iPhone font using BytaFont

BytaFont is the latest default font changing application, now available in the latest versions of iOS. It comes in a pretty handy moment, where all the old applications weren’t updated for iOS 4+ or, those who were are too complicated to use. BytaFont is actually the simplest font changing app out there, with an easy to use interface and just a download away, from Cydia.

Talking about Cydia, in order to use this application the iPhone must be jailbroken first. If you don’t know what that means, or simply don’t know how to do it, we have several guides to help you.

Unlike other iPhone font changing apps out there ( Ex: FontSwap that has been recently updated for iOS 4.0.1 but can change just the Notes or Lockscreen font ), BytaFont fully covers all the system fonts used in the iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G. And sure beats the hell out of the manual way, where you would have to manually type several command lines and push them using SSH.

We can’t actually speak of a full guide here, because like I said before, BytaFont is pretty easy. Here is what you have to do:

  1. First, start Cydia and search for BytaFont. Once located, click on the install button in the upper right corner.

  2. Now go to Cydia -> Sections -> Fonts and install every font you like. Although some of them can be pretty unreadable, you will also find good selections.

  3. Launch BytaFont from the SpringBoard. All the fonts you previously downloaded should be visible in the main menu, along with the default font of the iPhone.

  4. Install the iPhone font you want and have fun.
