Did you restore your firmware before jailbreaking your device, if not an you just clicked restore from backup, your device will write over the files you previously had and in some instances not show those files. You will need to restore to 3.0 firmware then jailbreak.
Wow that system font substitution sure looks neat! Is that from installing the package “Kate > System Font” thru Icy? Is that the DejaVu font? Could someone confirm please? 🙂
Its the Neotech font from Fontswap!
