Can we changed the fonts on a rooted milestone? If so, how?
Yes, fire up root explorer or any other program that lets you browse the system using a root account, then go to /system/fonts/ and overwrite whichever fonts you want. Use the same filename of the existing system font for your new fonts, then restart your phone.
Should work and remember to backup your fonts before overwriting them.
sorry i am a bit slow./...what is root finder or whatever you called it??? as i was wondering the same thing reguarding fonts.
Root explorer is a paid application that you can get from the market. I think you can find some free ones also. You can also do this by connecting your phone to your computer via USB and using the console to push new fonts to the system but it's a bit more complicated and right now I don't have the time to write a tutorial.
EDIT: Astro File Manager does the trick also ... it's free on the market.
oh ok thank you
