    Welcome to the thread dedicated to fonts.

    Change fonts system wide!
    Flashable font packs!

    I have a passion for fonts. The first thing I do after flashing a rom, is a font pack. For many years I have collected many many cool fonts that make android system stand out.

    I want to start with a few flashable packs (I know, old school) and then, maybe, switch on to AROMA file installation. Why starting with flashable packs? Because AROMA requires a lot of time, and first lets see if the interest for fonts around here will justify that.


    The packs will change the sytem fonts completely!!!

    Ho to flash:

    • If you have applied any font with the theme engine, please restore to default fonts.
    • Reboot into recovery and flash one of the packs of your choice
    • Reboot.

    I tested these in kitkat based roms. Don't use these in lollipop.


    Revert to default kitkat fonts:
    Download here

    Revert to default L fonts:
    Download here
    Lets start with some popular fonts:

    Open Sans -
    The OCD healer!
    ChocoCooky - Sweet smelling font!
    Exo - So nice exo-looking
    Rosemary - Herbal font remedy!
    Architects daughter - From a fragile hand!
    Helvetica - The x fonts!

    Eurostile - Square-ish


    Verdana - Green and friendly
    To do list:
    1. Add as more fonts as we could possibly use :)
    Enjoy! Feel free to attach screenshots, share thoughts, make requests (I hope I can satisfy each request). Every constructive criticism is welcomed.

    Stay tuned for more to come! ;)

    Can this thread contain fonts that are good in general? Like a good font in pictures or typing. :p

    Thanks. Rosemary is not that one. With screenshots I intend proper screenshots from the actual use of the font.

    I.E.

    Thank you. I am currently using the font that comes with the Levo theme engine. I am not sure which font that is. But these are also very nice.

    I have more than 100 font packs that I will gradually upload. Packs meaning all variants of the fonts, bold, italic, thin, condensed etc. This will result in complete font change for the system. It will be hard to find places in thw system where the font isn't changed. Just try for yourself and see.

    You need to make those fonts work on your system, and you need many variants of the font for a full replacement...

    This thread is not an equivalent to dafont.com or the like.

    I hope you appreciate this.

    Inquiry: When you change font, to what extend does it change fonts? Is it just the Android menu's or also pages that you browse?

    Never thought about changing the font actually, until I saw this thread.

    It will change everything. Even the pages you browse on chrome.
