1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

Can we change fonts with root as it currently stands?

    ^^ Awesome !

    Very jealous

    Back to my original question.
    I'm assuming that we can't adb push to /system/fonts or can we ?

    It is very risky to do this since we can not make backups.

    ahhh, but with the leak of the SBF, it is no longer risky!!! :D

    I just finished fiddling with this. The way I did it was with the Type Fresh app.

    [APP] Type Fresh - change your fonts! - xda-developers

    You also need to get the andexplorer app, as he mentions in the link above. All you do is adb push the font you want to use to /sdcard/Fonts. Once it's there, you can open the Type Fresh app on your phone and press the font you want to change, DroidSans is the one used for a majority of everything, and it will let you select what font you want to "replace" it with. BACKUP YOUR ORIGINAL FONTS THOUGH. This app has a feature to do that. I backed up before I even put other fonts on the sd. From what I understand, there is a risk due to some fonts not playing well with some other things. Do this at your own risk. Neither I nor openback are responsible if you brick your device. Thank goodness there is now a fix for that anyway. Thanks to openback for the sweet app.

    Below is a shot of the Android font I am using. I also have a Harry Potter font (sorry, kind of a dork) for my messaging. :D
