    That one was quite funny, actually . But, thinking about it, it could be interesting to see how it really looks.

    What's the font in the last text screen?

    edit: NVM, it's Magda right? It doesn't seem to work on my phone: I installed it in the fonts cache as the MarkerFelt fonts you named it as default and used Winterboard to change my icon labels to MarkerFeltWide but that didn't work. Then I changed the names to Helvetica and HelveticaBold and installed them as that but then i got the SWOD until I replaced the old Helvetica fonts. Just wanted to let you know this for your own development, I just wanted to see how the font looks on my phone so I really don't need it badly.

    Since a lot of you asked me how to convert the fonts to be usable on the iPhone, here it is: a very quick how-to.

    The fonts are TTFs, optimized for small size (they lack a lot of info, I guess some crossplatform stuff that Mac OS X does not need). There are two versions, the ones in /System/Fonts (original, unmodified TTFs, with copyright intact) and the ones in /System/Fonts/Cache (optimized for size and minimal info).

    Files and font names are mapped in CGFontCache.plist, which is a binary plist; it can be decompiled and edited with various tools; in Windows the easiest way is with Total Commander and T-PoT.

    The system seems to accept any font, optimized or not, it's just not aware of it until it's mapped correctly in CGFontCache.plist). You can add fonts which will show up on the various applications (book readers for example) by adding them to that plist.

    For the UI and Safari fonts you need some tools to change the internal font names, though. I use FontLab 5 to copy font information from the original fonts. After opening both original and my custom font, I use Copy... from Font Info to sync font names, styles and font identification. Some fonts need slight adjustments to Ascent/Descent values to look OK on the iPhone. Generate, replace originals.

    You can also copy/paste only some glyphs from custom to originals.

    If the UI crashes, you still have access to the filesystem and can undo anything (if you bothered to make backups, that is; did you?).

    Very simple stuff, really. Knock yourselves out.

    Let's be clear about this: the NeoTech adaptation is not mine, it's made by Gaurav Giri (gaurav’s rants Ľ About). I just linked it here because it's so cool. He also made a custom keyboard to go along with the fonts.

    How does one go about requesting a specific font? I know its a hard deal for the fact that if you fulfil one, you more than likely be flooded with thousands more.

    I have this great font I would love to use...I'll try out your how-to 1st and see how things work out.
    They can be a great people, Kal-El, they wish to be.
    They only lack the light to show the way.
    For this reason above all, their capacity for good, I have sent them you... my only son.
