Wrong Fonts in Leaked Windows 7.8 ROMs Causing Bugs

Windows 7.8 has been a pretty big deal since it was first shared on the site. In just a couple short weeks, there have been successful ports to the HTC Titan, the venerable HTC HD2, and the HTC HD7. Developers and users alike have been able to play with the newest version of Windows for their devices. Of course, leaks and ports do have their issues, and Windows Phone 7.8 is no different.

Fortunately, this problem is really easy to fix. XDA Senior Member Budniu has posted a fix to a very annoying and sometimes hard to spot font bug for Windows Phone 7.8. Budniu managed to capture some screenshots of the bug. It doesn’t affect performance or how the phone works, but it is kind of annoying to see letters randomly appear in a different font. The fix, of course, is to change the fonts. As Budniu explains:

If you want to display them properly we need to copy the downloaded fonts to the Windows folder on the device overwriting the old ones and spftreset device. Fonts, whose we need call:
SegoeWP.ttf
SegoeWP-Black.ttf
SegoeWP-Bold.ttf
SegoeWP-Light.ttf
SegoeWP-Semibold.ttf
SegoeWP-Semilight.ttf

To help out, the thread links users to the font pack, and installation involves overwriting the old files. It’s a silly bug, but at least there’s a simple solution. For more details, check out the original thread.

Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
