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.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
