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.

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
