Type Fresh – Change Fonts on your Rooted Android Device
Type Fresh, developed by XDA forum member openback, lets you change system fonts on your rooted Android device.
Originally posted by openback
This app is for systems with root access only. It offers 4 main functions:
- Apply selected TTF fonts to the system
- Backup system fonts to /sdcard/Fonts
- Restore backed up fonts from /sdcard/Fonts
- Place any TTF files you have in /sdcard/Fonts for easiest access.
Once applied, the system must be rebooted. Any ROM updates will overwrite any fonts with the default ones. Don’t worry though as your favorite fonts can be easily restored by using the backup tool in the application. Be careful to save original fonts if you wish to restore to these one day.
Type Fresh is available as a free download in the Market.
Check out the main application thread for more information.

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
