How to install a DJB font to your iPhone or iPad

So you’ve scrapped an untold number of layoutsholiday decorations, an organization system out of egg cartons, and even a toilet paper tube countdown calendar. You’ve maybe even altered your iPhone or iPad by jailbreaking it and decking it out with all sorts of awesome tweaks. Well, did you know that you add a DJB font to your jailbroken iOS/Apple device.* 

This tutorial is for instruction on installing the DJB Brewhaus Special font. It is the only font available at this time to use, but more are coming soon!
  • Open Cydia on your jailbroken device search for “bytafont” and install.  
  • Go back to Cydia and search ‘brewhaus’, select it and click install.
  • Return to bytafont (you’ll have two options)
  • Select “basic” on the bottom of the screen (from the two options)
  • Select “DJB Brewhaus Special”
  • Select “yes” when the prompt appears.
Your device will respring and Darcy’s font will be everywhere bytafont adjusts your font.  If you wish to pick and chose where Darcy’s font appears go to the “advanced” tab on the bottom.

 *Disclaimer: I enjoy serving a vast audience of font users. I am not a jailbreaking expert, and I’m not playing one on this blog post (but there are those in the vast interwebs who might have an answer for you!). I am not giving advice on the merits of jailbreaking or instruction on how to go about jailbreaking.  If you choose to jailbreak your device, you accept the inherent risk associated with it.  I am not liable for anything that may go wrong during the jailbreaking or restore process.
