    Change your font the easy way using Metamorph!!
    SkaggzFont0.9.1

    0.9.1 is out now!! I added a few new fonts and removed some that were not working/ugly. I also fixed the bug requiring you to manually extract the files. You can now extract using Metamorph!

    Click HERE for samples of the included fonts!!

    Ok, I finally figured it out and am now able to change fonts on the Droid using Metamorph. I pulled some fonts off my PC that looked like they wouldn't be too small to use on the Droid and made a Metamorph compatible file. There are 21 fonts plus the stock Android font. Here is how to use it:

    * DOWNLOAD the .zip file onto your phone. 4.4 MB

    * Open Metamorph and select 'Pick Theme'

    * Find the downloaded .zip file within Metamorph's file browser.

    * Select the 'SkaggzFont0.9.1' file

    * Metamorph will begin to extract the file and launch the update UI

    * Scroll and select a color you want to use **DO NOT HIT THE APPLY ALL BUTTON**

    * Hit the 'Apply It!' button when it pops up.

    * Then hit 'Yes' to reboot your phone

    Once your phone is finished rebooting (it might take a little longer than usual) you will have a new, custom font. It's that easy!

    To change your font again after you've ran it once:

    * Select 'Existing Theme' in Metamorph

    * Select 'SkaggzFont0.9.1'

    * Scroll down and select the 'SkaggzFont0.9.1.thm (green icon)


    Try it out guys and let me know what you think. I'm open to any type of feedback. If you want a font installed for the next update, tell me about it.


    Download Link: SkaggzFont0.9.1.zip 4.4 MB

    disclaimer: Use at your own risk, yada yada yada. Always have a current, stable, nandroid backup file. I'm not responsible if your phone dies, explodes, goes swimming directly after eating, tries to have sex with your dog, or even calls your boss in the middle of the night to tell him that you tried to have sex with his dog. I did not create any of these fonts, I just pulled them from my PC and compiled them into a file for use on the Motorola Droid. Fonts have only been tested on the Motorola Droid, so I have no idea what will happen if you try them on another phone.

    I look forward to hearing from you guys!
    ENJOY!

    Yes. I added some in the 0.9.1 file. The 0.9.0 version was originally released on the DroidMod.org forums for testing.

    Thanks very much for this Skaggs, this keeps getting better and better.

    Side note: LOL @ the Techniza font for using "NTV" as it's & sign.

    *Edit* I agree about the Droid font, it has been the only font I have ever used beyond stock, and I hated it. I understand why people like it, but I have trouble reading it quickly.

    Haha! That's funny...

    Anyway, this didn't work for me. Using Pete's Bugless Beast .5 attempted to use the Droid font. Attached is a picture of my settings menu after reboot...(everything in metamorph appeared to be fine)

    Seems like there's really not a whole lot of metamorph stuff that'll work with bb .5 and/or 2.1 roms...quite sad...

    This is great. Where do I send my donation for your efforts to make our font changing lives easier?

    I've had minimal luck applying anything other than Pete's modded smoked glass theme on bb. 5. Think I already posted that, but I can't believe its THIS difficult to theme out a 2.1 rom. Haha!

    Great job on this Skaggz. I hope you add an italicized Times New Roman font on the next update, bro. Thanks again! :)

    You know you can add it yourself, right? It takes about two minutes to add any font you want to this. No need to wait for someone else to do it for you.

    Do we just pull the font files from our computers and put it in the metamorph folder?

    Rename them to DroidSans-Bold.ttf and DroidSans.ttf, put them in a folder with a unique name, then edit the THM file to point to that folder also.

    Not every font on your computer will work on your Droid. One of the beauty's of Skaggz tool is he does all that work for you to test them out. I was just saying if you had a font you wanted and didn't want to wait for an update, you have this option.

    I had the same problem. I got stuck in the boot screen (moving between the initial white Droid icon and the red flashing light) and was not able to get into the PC at all. Fortunately, the last theme that I updated was an update.zip so I was able to reboot in recovery mode and place the previous theme back on there, which seemed to fix everything.
