Lockscreen font help needed please

Recommended Posts


I have been on a mission to try and get the defy lock screen looking like the stock android one.

So far I have managed to get the sliders and the layout the same but am stuck at the last hurdle getting the clock in the clockopia font.

You can't change it in the framework-res.apk layouts and because it currently uses a generic system font I can't just change the font in the fonts folder as that will change everything to clockopia. So I have decompiled android.policy.jar to look at the lockscreen.smali but I can't see any references to fonts or setting the typeface.

I would really appreciate some hep and direction on this one.

I have attached the decompiled lockscreen java.

I take it that I need to add something like this in somewhere but I am no Java dev:

Typeface tf = Typeface.createFromAsset(getContext().getAssets(),"fonts/Clockopia.ttf");


But I extracted the lockscreen.java out of the android open source project and I can't see where the clockopia font gets set.

Could someone with the full open source project please do a grep for clockopia and see where it is set?
