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.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
