    Change font only?

    Noob question:

    Running SS v4.3. Perfect, except would like to change the font only. Any thoughts on how to do this?

    I at this point have no font-switching capabilities in SS - however, I just checked out 'Type Fresh' from the market and it makes it pretty easy to change fonts - check it out!

    Perfect.

    The Type Fresh app wasn't really an improvement over this method which was too tedious:

    Grab desired .ttf
    Copy it
    Rename 'DroidSans' and 'DroidSans-Bold'
    Place them in /system/fonts on your phone, overwrite the current DroidSans.ttf and DroidSans-Bold.ttf
    Reboot

    I'm pretty sure all you need to do is replace the fonts in the /system/fonts folder to whatever you like. I've tried a couple from my computer with success (Arial, Tahoma, etc.)

    I used Root Explorer from the Market to copy the fonts from my sd card
    - I think any .ttf will do
    - fonts must be renamed to match what is in the /system/fonts folder (DroidSans.ttf = system font, DroidSans-Bold.ttf = system bold font, etc.)
    - permissions on the .ttf files must match what is already there (rw-r--r--)

    Like I said, I've done this on my phone without any issues. Just rename the current fonts on your phone with a .bak extension to keep them in case you don't like the results.

    Just make sure you make a nandroid backup first and have some fun!

    It says that TYPE FRESH is only for ROOTED PHONES.
    I don't know what that means but it won't work on the Droid X.

    How can I increase the fonts then?
