Mad [script] change fonts

Make a folder named FONTS in your sdcard.
Put any font file .ttf in it (only one at a time)
download and extract the script in the root of your sdcard
Run the Script in terminal emulator ( ATTACHED) on your phone or in CMD on PC

If you are using CMD first type
adb shell and than type the below code

Quote:
su
cd /sdcard
sh fonts.sh
your phone will reboot after running this script to make changes.

This script : -
  1. will rename the font placed in the fonts folder
  2. will replace:-) the fonts
  3. will create backup of your original font in your sdcard.
Cheers

EDIT : Original fonts attached just incase you want to go back

The real headache was to pick any file name and change them to Droidsans... those 4lines of script made me go through so many forums of Linux... I wanted a script in which people would had to do minimal work.. I guess I'm successful.. did you try it yet?

PS - I'll never buy the Linux OS

Yes ofc I have tried it Works good :/ but it has to be the font problem that it makes some kind of squares in stead of some letters And for example if the icon title is too long some letters are missing :/ I have to find better font
Definite success

Linux is open source You don't have to buy it lol
