Personalize your Device with Font Changer for Android
XDA member martino2k6 has provided Android users with a very easy tool to modify the font of their Android devices. Font Changer does exactly what its name suggests, it easily allows anyone to change the stock font of the device to anything that they want. The app is nowhere near as much of a hassle as what changing the fonts actually is. Simply drop the fonts in the application’s folder, wait for the app to recognize it, and boom! You got another font to choose from when customizing your device. The process is pretty much automated but it has a few requirements such as root and busybox.
If you would like to try it out, make sure that you leave some feedback for the dev.
You can find more information in the application thread.

Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
