Anemone allows users to install themes on iOS 11 but it also contains all the necessary files to run fonts. Here’s how you can download and install fonts on iOS 11-11.1.2 with Electra jailbreak.

Is font installation possible with Anemone?
The Anemone version that comes bundled with Electra toolkit has the anemonefonts.dylib file. This file allows you to apply and run fonts on iOS 11.
Coolstar removed this dylib file in beta 9 because it was purportedly interfering with some other process.
Therefore, applying fonts will work only if you are using a previous beta like beta 8 or 7.
There are no substantial changes for the end user since beta 7 so you can use either of these versions.
If you aren’t using any of these versions, delete the current version from your device and sideload the older version.
I recommend using beta 8-2 as it’s the latest version that’s older than beta 9. You can download beta 8-2 here.
Once that’s over with, just grab the right ZIP archive using the links below. As of now, I was only able to upload 7 fonts to my Mega.nz cloud storage.
- Warning – Fonts will not work properly if you are using Electra beta 9 or above. You must manually place the missing files (download here) to this location on your device – /bootstrap/Library/SBInject/.

Step 3 Click on Login to start transferring files and other data.
Step 4 Download the requisite ZIP archive using the links above. Ensure you have Mega’s mobile app installed prior to downloading.
Step 5 Extract the .theme folder present in this archive to any drive on your computer. You can use 7Zip or the inbuilt archive utility of Windows.
Step 6 Navigate to this location on WinSCP – /bootstrap/Library/Themes and drag the above .theme folder to this location.
Step 7 Once the requisite folder is present in this location, you can apply it via Anemone.
- Download the font of your choice and extract it via ZipApp App Store application.
