    Favum font change

    I just flashed the Favum 1.1d ROM and am wanting to change the system font. I installed Font Installer from the Play Store, but whenever I installed the font and rebooted, nothing changed. Is changing the font not possible with the Favum ROM?

    Well it looks like they do have them... check out Font Installer. It just won't actually change my system font for some reason.

    I've never tried the font changers, but if it's geared for Honeycomb, I don't see why it wouldn't work. You can always manually change them. It's fairly easy to do, but be cautious. If you try to change a system font, and it doesn't go well, be prepared to reinstall your rom. Take a look at the various fonts under the system directory and go from there.

    Just a thought, xm, might you need to clear the dalvik when you change the fonts? They may be cached there and might require that for the change to "take".

    Is there any way to install fonts manually to this location? Or do they even need to be in this location?

    I think Font Installer installs the fonts directly from the app...
    If I were to manually install, would I need to rename the font from .ttf?

    You could try to use metamorph to push the files. So far I've got it to work with most anything.

    Installing fonts on Android isn't the same as for Windows. You can't just drop a font into the folder and it's installed. You have to replace an existing font with the one you are wanting to use.

    For example, I changed the statusbar clock font. To do this, I had to find the font I wanted to use, then rename it to "androidclock.ttf" and transfer it to the font folder, thus replacing the original font. To further complicate matters, I also had to do the same for "AndroidClock_Highlight.ttf" and "AndroidClock_Solid.ttf" for it to work properly. There are many fonts within this folder. You'll need to identify the component you want replaced first, then replace it as above. You'll have to use a file manager such as the included Solid Explorer, and you must change the permissions of the file for it to work.

    Danvee might be right. Whenever you install anything that changes system files, it's a good idea to wipe Dalvik and cache too.

    I've used Metamorph to change icons, but not fonts. I'd assume it works the same, but I can't be positive, as I've not done it.

    Well that's a bit of a pain. I'll try it out and get back to you.

    By the way, AWESOME ROM.
