    Change fonts?

    Is it possible to change the font in either of the themes for bugless beast to look like the android font from Smokeless Glass V6? Maybe through metamorph or update.zip? I found a theme modifier but couldn't find any fonts or if it was compatible.

    This is what I use to easily change fonts on the fly, including restoring the stock font.

    SkaggzFont - Skaggz Hackz

    You will have to convert the .thm file to the newer .xml if you have the newest version of MetaMorph. Here is what I used in case you aren't familiar with writing .xml files:

    [RELEASE] Metamorph - Theme Control File Upgrader - xda-developers

    Hope this helps!

    In Rom Manager under JRummy you'll find "Goodies" and "Scripts". Once both is installed you'll type in "su" then "scripts" It'll show all of his available scripts you can use which includes about 20 fonts. Type the font you want and "rb" (reboot).
    This will not overwrite Pete's scripts, it will just add to them. I've gone through about 10-15 different fonts so far.

    Although these automated ways are great, I'm just going to try to tell you whats actually going on.

    Your phone needs to be rooted

    Your fonts are kept in the /system/fonts directory.

    What you want to do is to change the DroidSans.ttf and DroidSans-Bold.ttf to whatever font you want. The secret is to rename your desired font to DroidSans.ttf and DroidSans-Bold.ttf and simply replace the default files with the newly renamed files. This can be done with MM, adb, or any update method, but this is what is going on.

    I personally prefer the Zegoe.ttf font for both the regular and Bold font. I think it looks great. Another popular choice is the Droid System font.

    Cool, Thanks. I'll try this. I'm trying to learn multiple ways of doing things. I'm all for automated but, I do like learning the manual way of modifing things. It helps me understand more of how this phone is set up.

    Where could I find the fonts to use with this method?

    I would start with the Skaggz mm theme, however any .ttf file will do. Because a lot of .ttf files are copyrighted (ie Microsoft) I'm not sure I can point you to any specific links, however I found a bunch on the internet and on my computer (M$,Ubuntu).
