BytaFont 2.1.1 released Thu, 20 Feb 2014 19:21:19 +0000 CK fonts.]]> 0 BytaFont 2.1 released Wed, 19 Feb 2014 16:20:43 +0000 The main feature we have added is the capability of setting a custom font for the lock screen only using a cydget.

Since iOS 7 uses the same font for lock screen and system, it is not possible to customise the lock screen alone via BytaFont 2 as you used to do via BytaFont 1.x in iOS 6.
Nevertheless, since this is really a top-requested feature, we took the inspiration for a workaround from this post on

Now using BytaFont 2.1 and Cydget you’ll be able to display a specific font just for the lock screen.

How-to use
  1. install “BytaFont Cydget” (ModMyi repository) and activate it in Cydget settings (open Settings > Cydget > Lock Cydget Order, select BytaFont and respring)
  2. run BytaFont 2.1 and select the new option Lock screen (tab More)
  3. select “BytaFont” as Cydget and the font you prefer as Font
  4. tap Save and exit BytaFont
From now on, whenever you want to change the lock screen font you just need to repeat steps 3 and 4.
BytaFont lets you choose all the fonts ported to iOS 7 available on your device and you can also use your own fonts (just for lock screen!) even if they haven’t been ported to iOS: just copy the font file (e.g. ttf, otf) in /var/mobile/Library/MyFonts2/Unported (do not create subfolders) and the font will appear in the list of the available fonts for Lock screen. If you use invalid font files the lock screen font may not show up properly.

If you want to revert to the original lock screen, just unselect BytaFont from Cydget settings and respring.

You can also use a custom cydget, as long as it is BytaFont compatible, i.e. it contains the BytaFont tags.
If you select a cydget that is not BytaFont compatible, you’ll get the error message: “Invalid cydget!”. Please notice that if you use a custom cydget instead of BytaFont you need to activate it in Cydget settings and respring (step 1).

Don’t hesitate to email us if you come across something that’s not working properly or if you have any suggestions. ]]> 0
How-to make a BytaFont compatible cydget Wed, 19 Feb 2014 16:20:27 +0000 @font-face src descriptors that you want to be customisable, as in this example:

@font-face {
    font-family: 'BytaFont';
    /* BytaFont { */src: url('/System/Library/Fonts/Cache/Georgia.ttf');/* } */

BytaFont will simply replace the source path with the font picked by the user.]]> 0
