The iPhone has a couple dozen different fonts. I don't have any kind of list that says what font is mapped to
what application. I have found that if you change the Helvetica, and Helvetica Bold fonts with a customized
font, it has the single greatest impact on the look of the iPhone. So, those are the fonts we will be
swapping out in this tutorial. I will link to many other fonts later on, and you can experiment with swapping
those out with their counterparts.
The custom font I am going to use in this tutorial is called NeoTech, and is made by Gaurav Giri. You can read the article about
this font, and download the font here.
Note: This website has some other fonts in it, so spend some time reading it.
I will be using Fugu to upload the files in this tutorial. These instructions can be applied to any files you want to add to your
iPhone, provided you already have SSH installed. If you have not installed OpenSSH, or used
Fugu before, then you must read this tutorial first.
Launch Fugu and navigate to /System/Library/Fonts/Cache.
Scroll down to Helvetica.ttf and right click the file. Select Rename.
I renamed mine to HelveticaORIGINAL.ttf, so that I can go back to the original font.
Repeat this process for HelveticaBold.ttf.
Copy over the modified files to your Cache folder.
Turn the iPhone off, and then back on (or use a program that will respring for you, like PowerTool).
Here is another font called Kasper. It uses the exact same process as detailed above to install.
You can also change the font in the Notes application as well. This font is called Calibri.
Calibri takes the place of the MarkerFeltThin font. You simply rename Calibri, and place it here
There is a thread over at ModMyi which discusses this further, and has a bunch of links to alternate
