Custom iPad Font In iOS 7

BytaFont 2 allows you to install a custom font on your jailbroken iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. There are many custom fonts available for iOS 7. BytaFont 2 is a free Cydia tweak that can be installed on your iPad (or iPhone) to change your iPad font. Custom fonts are available through Cydia, just browse the font section of Cydia for nearly 1,000 custom fonts. Bytafont adds a new icon to your iPad and allows for basic or advanced font customization.

If you installed and used BytaFont 1.7.1 with iOS 7 you need to go back before installing the new BytaFont version:
  • be sure to restore the original fonts (via BytaFont if you applied a font via BytaFont or manually if you applied the font manually)
  • uninstall BytaFont 1.7.1 via Cydia
  • now you can install BytaFont 2 from Cydia and new fonts from Fonts (BytaFont 2) section; we recommend to use ModMyi source as usual, otherwise you’ll miss our updates or you may experience installation issues
Below are a few examples of the different fonts available...

Answers to common questions received via email/twitter

  • Does BytaFont 2 works with iPhone 5S? Yes, we had positive feedback about that
  • Are fonts in “Fonts (BytaFont 2)” section compatible with iOS 7.1? Not yet, we are working on it
  • Can I use the fonts in old Cydia “Fonts” section? Nope, they won’t work with BytaFont 2. iOS 7 compatible fonts are only in “Fonts (BytaFont 2)” section
  • Dialer is not skinned, why? The dialer cannot be skinned via BytaFont: it is an image
  • The lock clock and notes are not available in the advanced tab, why? iOS 7 uses the same font for lock clock, notes and system, so when you change the system font the lock clock and notes change too
  • Why does the new Cydia section, Fonts (BytaFont 2), contains few fonts? Porting takes a lot of time, please be patient: we’ll add new fonts almost every day
  • After installing BytaFont 2 there is no icon in the springboard, what can I do? Just restart your device
  • I get a black screen when I start BytaFont 2 for the first time, what should I do? If your device is quite slow (e.g. iPad 2, iPhone 4) it is normal, just wait some time and let BytaFont finish the back up of your original files
