so in the /System/Library/Fonts/Cache directory there are a **** load of fonts. but i never seen any of these fonts in use on my iphone 3gs. will it be safe to remove some of these fonts to free up some space on my phone? i am on a 3gs 3.1.2

what fonts can i remove?

i mean this file alone; STHeiti-Light.ttc, is 26mb.

please help me with this.

Thanks :)


--- Update ---

I think you should keep those. I messed around with those earlier in my time with my iPod, and it went into a infinite reboot. Luckily I could access SSH and restore my Fonts.

They are the default built-in native fonts that may be requested by a webpage or app. Best to leave them alone.

^You might not see any problems especially since that font is used rarely but awnted is righ those fonts are called upon by appstore apps. When the app calls on the font it may just be blank or it might cause serious issues

Yeah you guys are right. But i'm pretty sure all it would do is make those wierd symbols like when you go to some jappenesse website and you just see [] [] [][ ][ ][ ] kinda stuff.

If you really wanted to mess around with fonts and stuff, you could open up the CGFontCache.plist and change the directory of some of the fonts you wish to remove to a font that you don't remove so it'll think you still have it even though you don't. It will end up displaying properly most likely but may look off since it is the wrong font
