    How can I change the font on CM to the droid font found in adamz smoked glass? I can't seem to find the ttf files but I read that I could use rootexplorer to replace the files like I do a bootimage? Not sure if this is correct but sounds right. I have found many threads on google about the font I want but no links to the actual files.

    I found the font I want. i have two ttf files. One regular and one bold. Can I just rename them to droidsans and droidsans bold to replace those two files with root explorer or maybe just rename the zip file containing the two ttf files to update.zip and use rom manager?

    thanks

    You do as you first said -- rename them to DroidSans.ttf and DroidSans-Bold.ttf (using exactly that capitalization and the hyphen before bold) and use Root Explorer to replace the same files in /system/fonts. Don't forget to change the permissions so that they read "rw-r--r--," then reboot.
