9 posts in this topic

How would I go about installing that font onto my G300? I presume I need root?

Need to be rooted as the font directory is on /system. Adb push the file or use font changer app.

Toge64, here's the link to the fonts (i'm not supplying them), and if you've rooted your phone here's the instruction:

  • Extract the fonts that you've found to a directory on your SD card (any folder name will do, just so long as you can find it)
  • Make sure you have a file manager that will allow root access, personally i use the paid version of Root Explorer
  • Copy the fonts that you require using the file manager of your choice
  • Navigate to the following directory /system/fonts/, and make sure that you set the read/write for the directory to write
  • Paste the fonts into the directory
  • Then, reset the permission of the directory to read.

Should work (works on mine).

Otherwise, you could use Go Launcher Ex, put the fonts into the font directory (which is part of the Go Launcher directory on the SD card), and use them from there.

Your choice. Just hope I've helped a bit.

Just installed Roboto font through Rom Toolbox which has a font installer. Just download it through Rom Toolbox itself and install. Simples.
