    Is there a simple way to change the font style on my rooted eris? I am running plain jane T2 2.0 right now. I really like the ROM so far (works well for me), but the font style is difficult to read at times.

    Thanks!

    I downloaded Type Fresh, but can't figure it out

    I should have mentioned I did that already. Now I'm just confused how to get it to work. I also download And explorer too. (thanks for your quick reply and help)

    Read the instructions on type fresh and now i'm waiting for my phone to reboot. It appears to be stuck on reboot. Is this normal? I'm able to run other apps still while it reboots.

    Still having no luck with Type Fresh. I can't get past the rebooting process. Any other suggestions to changing my font style?

    you could try my .bat it comes with 21 fonts that you can use.
    T2NoobBat.zip
    this is run from pc, phone must be plugged in with debugging on. Then run the .bat and follow the instructions.

    Thanks T2noob. I'll try your's out later when I have my usb cord available. The constant rebooting is very frustrating.

    I had a nightmare changing fonts on my rooted Desire. Finally managed to get it working using ADB. I tried Type Fresh and it just didn't work. There seemed to be no way of getting write access to the /system directory with the phone booted, so had to use ADB in recovery mode.
    Instructions are here:

    Hope that helps

    First of all, thanks for ROM. I've tried others, but this one definitely works the best for me.

    Ok. So. Very sorry to ask this, but can you explain in simple-not-sure-how-to-flash-terms how to do this? I have download both the Default font zip (which I cannot believe i didn't notice before) and the T2NoobBat zip.

    Do i just flash the default zip without creating a back up nand? Do i just load it and reboot? There's a simple answer I'm sure.

    Done. Too easy! Thanks. I just wasn't sure. Now someday I'll want to try your other zip. Root is awesome!
