    I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to import new system fonts to this ROM or is there a program I can do this from?

    There should be a font pack in the kitchen. Once you've flashed that go to settings, display, screen display, font style

    It's a specific font I'm looking for though, how can I add them manually?

    The GS2 will use FlipFont files, so search the Android Market for the one you're looking for in that format.

    I did try that but it doesn't have the font I'm looking for. The font I've got is 'NeutraText-BoldSC' and it's currently in a .otf format. Is there a way round that or do I have to choose from the list?

    FlipFont format files can be installed directly as mentioned. A .ttf font can be renamed to replace the existing default font(s) in the device, but I don't know of any way to use .otf files.

    Do you know of a way to convert a .ttf to Flip Font format? I could probably get the font as a .ttf instead of a .otf

    If you have it in .ttf, then rename it to DroidSans.ttf (or DroidSerif-Regular.ttf is it's a serifed typeface), copy the existing one as a backup and then overwrite it with the new replacement. After a reboot the new font should be in use.

    I think that's how it's done.

    I know this is a bit late, but my internet hasn't been working so not been able to reply. Where would I find the 'DroidSans.ttf' file to overwrite it? I did a search on my SD card with hidden files shown and it didn't show up.
