    I just downloaded a bunch of really cute fonts specifically meant for a phone, but I'm clueless as to how to transfer it to my phone from my computer. I'm not interested in the font apps available on the Market because none of them seem very endearing. Sadly, google doesn't seem to have very many tutorials for the tech-dumb Droid users.

    Please help out ignoramus here:)
    Or if I happened to miss a previous thread regarding this issue, could someone direct me?

    lol. It makes me smile to hear you say that. Sorry if I'm oh-so-conspicuously using this reply as a thread bumper.

    I scoured the forums to check if bumping was legal and couldn't find anything. (In my defense I waited for a week?)

    First of all, you need to be rooted in order to change the font.

    Before we continue, is your phone rooted?

    As long as you carefully follow the instructions, its almost impossible to brick your phone

    If you can change font with open home, it will probably only change the font on your homescreens, not everything else

    Yeah it will change the fonts on all app names and things that arent in browser or the fonts on anything while its running. Pretty much just your main pages for looks I guess.

    I realize this thread is old, but I can't find this information anywhere. The topic was dropped when the original poster said they weren't rooted. So, how does one with a rooted Motorola Droid change the font? Thanks for any help that can be provided.

    I would love to know this information as well. I am rooted running Project Elite V2 at the moment.

    Can anyone please give step-by-step instructions on how to change the font for the system?

    Just install Font Installer app from the android market. Start it and it will automatically download a ton of apps. You can choose which one to install.... and all done!!
