    Well no its time to change the font on your phone :D

    I used this app Type Fresh – Change Fonts on your Rooted Android Device | xda-developers

    Just follow the instructions and install the other program it asks for and its takes around 20 seconds to change the font and you can use any font from any site like this one 1001 Fonts .com

    Just download the windows TTF version, move it to the fonts folder that is put on the SD card by the above app and then open the app choose the font you want click "settings" "apply and the phone will ask you to reboot it and there you a new font on your phone :D

    It means getting to the core of the OS to do tweaks and customizations and stuff.

    Root access-- This will allow you the owner/user to delete Sony apps pre installed on phone. Will allow you to install your choice of Home apps, and delete default one. Will allow you to do complete back up of entire phone rom kill the rom and have it there to repair if you delete the wrong things. Root will give you the freedom to make the x10 your phone.

    Try it out guys

    After your phone is rooted

    Install TypeFresh and AndExplorer, a must for rooted devices. Currently using them. Yes, I came from XDA-Developers.

    You don't have to root to have more screens, you can just use a different home launchers such as ADW (upto 7 screens) or Helix (5 screens). You can use an app like Home Switcher to choose which one then to set as default, on my phone it shows Home (SE own), Timescape and ADW. I actually use ADW with 5 screens.
