If you are tired of that boring old font on your rooted Android device, and want to add a custom font that fits your style best, then you are in luck!

XDA Member Fachadick (hilariously inappropriate name) has a great thread with over 200 flashable fonts!  They all have picture previews as well as simple and easy update.zip install method.  They should work on almost all rooted Android Devices, and I can personally confirm it works on HTC Eris, Droid X, HTC Incredible,  and HTC Evo, but should work for all.

His Thread says:

Requires root.
Should work on any Android phone.
Some of these look better than others.
I starred the fonts that I personally think look awesome.

To use:
Just copy to sdcard and flash -these only change three files in the /system/fonts folder (effectively changing your main system fonts), so you can flash one on top of the other until you find one you like, but if you want to do a Nandroid backup first, that’s ok too.

This is my screenshot using the Comfortaa Font:

Head over to the thread here and check them out and flash away.
