Changing the font in the settings does not work.

Either it doesn't work or it looks exactly the same as the standard font.

if i am not mistaken you actually need to have a rooted phone in order to use this.

As the fonts are stored in the System, they are not accesible by the apk directly.
I dont believe that it will work with any stock Rom.


But someone with higher knowledge might shed some more light into this if i am wrong.
