Rooted: Changing Android Fonts

| October 29, 2010 | 1 Reply

I’ve had my Android device (Incredible) for a while now and have settled into a custom ROM, screen setups, widgets…… and just needed something to push it over the edge. Well I’m happy to say I found it. Thanks to fachadick over in the xda forums, I now have the ability to change the fonts on my device. You do need to be rooted to do this but its very easy….and addicting. There are several fonts to choose from, over a hundred currently, and some very nice ones I might add. The font you see here is called Zekton at the bottom of the 10/7 list. So far, I have had absolutely no issues and I don’t expect any. This has given me the out of the box excitement all over again. Enjoy.

And the OEM font for comparison.

About the Author ()

I’ve been a gearhead my whole life. This lead me to product and electrical design for a major auto maker. My love for design, computers/electronics and tinkering with gadgets forced the purchase of a smaprtphone when they first came out. I’ve stepped up through the ranks, WinMo, Blackberry (still have my Storm) and now an Android device. While using the Storm, I was a huge fan of themes, which brought me to WJDDesigns. I was honored to become part of this great team and could not be more proud to now be developing my own themes. I hope you enjoy what this team and our site has to offer.

  • Great article – I like that font to makes the homescreen look good…
