    Found a font that has Emoji enabled and would like to try and install it.
    Or has anyone found a way to get emoji to work with rooted phones ?

    Haven't tried... but if you're rooted, you can get to the fonts. They are stored in /system/fonts

    You can put the font there, and hope it appears in standard font selection menus. Or, worst case, you can replace an existing droid font (back it up first before you replace).

    you'll need to use adb or the Root Explorer app to do this.



    here's the list of fonts I see:

    drwxr-xr-x 1 0 0 2048 Aug 8 00:59 .
    drwxr-xr-x 1 0 0 2048 Aug 8 01:00 ..

    -rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 191032 Aug 1 2008 DroidSans-Bold.ttf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 190044 Aug 1 2008 DroidSans.ttf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 35908 Aug 1 2008 DroidSansArabic.ttf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 3640264 Aug 1 2008 DroidSansFallback.ttf

    Not to dig up an old thread, but did you ever get it to work? Please share the font if you did! :)

    Thanks buddy
