Yea, definitely thanks for this thread. I was able to change fonts with certain roms, but I've been running the stock 2.1 rooted now and this is just want I needed to make my phone still stand out! Thanks again!
ei8htohms - Thanks - used non bold font as bold - install went well. Amazing!!!!!
Way to go!!!!!!!!!
Changed font by dragging Droid fonts to "new_font" folder on sdcard.
Made "bold" font contain the same file as non-bold. renamed bold font to x -DroidSans-Bold.ttf just in cast I want to use it later.
Used root explorer to goto /system/fonts
Set permissions to rw
Changed ttf to bak for the two files: DroidSans.ttf / DroidSans-Bold.ttf
Then went to new_font folder, selected multiple copy, then copied / pasted font files - DroidSans.ttf / DroidSans-Bold.ttf to /system/fonts
Changed permissions back to read only. Rebooted. Yes!!!!!!!!

Just found this thread, awesome man, simply awesome. I have a question, does anyone know how to resize a font to fit better on the Droid. I tired a TTF font, but it is too big in some applications. any help would be appreacted. Thanks
It's been a long road to the GNEX!!! But its been worth IT!!
Not sure if the Font changes work with FRG22 Roms. If you're stuck at the "M" - pull your battery and try again to boot. Might have to reinstall your ROM over itself to get back to the original fonts. Or if you can Boot into Recovery (Holding Pwr+X), then try to restore a backup that was prefont change. I've been burned, so I do a backup before a mod. Timeconsuming but saves time in the end.

Oh well, guess that's out for me. :/
EDIT: Well holy hell, I forgot to put .ttf at the end of the file names I was replacing the original text files with... lol so I did it correctly and rebooted... it works.
EDIT AGAIN: Wow... it LOOKED like it was gonna work fine but all the text is clumped together and I got a force close message in the Mms.apk. Awesome.
