When you search for it online there's a zip file you can download. It will contain the different versions of that font.

Unzip the folder, pick the one you want, and then using the iFont app you can install it.

Once it's installed, you need to "turn it into an APK" and that allows you to then install and apply for your system wide font.

Good luck

huh?

You only need iFont to install it, not need to convert it to anything.

iFont will install the .tff file as a system font for you.

Simply follow the instructions in iFont.

I used ifont and I still had to unzip the file and then turn it into an APK using ifont to install it.

Yes, use a root file browser. Rom Toolbox Pro is my favorite.

I used CWM recovery to flash some fonts from here and they all worked fine.

The only issue is that you can lose root due to the nature of the CWM recovery when rebooting the phone.

you can download the file and open it with 7-zip and pull the fonts out and push them to your system/fonts folder using root browser or something of the sort, and it should do the trick

DONATE TO ME
Crazy thing is that the Roboto font is in there... LG didn't remove it, they just masked it out for some reason.

No, it's called Roboto in /system/app but it is NewSansGothic. You can name any font you want Roboto-Regular.ttf and it will be the default font. I also replaced it with a custom font but it's still called Roboto-Regular,ttf in that directory
