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.

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.

If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?
If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
