Question [Q] Install Custom Font Via Apk Font

Dear, all
Can someone post a guide/tutorial how to install custom font on our lovely LG Optimus G Pro? I don't want to use "push to system/font" method. . When i was using Galaxy S3 mini, i can create a custom .apk font (Flip Font) file via decompile/recompile other .apk font. But when i install those .apk font to OGP, the font doesn't show up on display setting.
So, please anybody can help? Thanks

Not sure if you're rooted or not, but have you tried RomToolbox? I use it to install my fonts, and it works great. The only time I haven't seen it work is when I try to install a "bold type" font. Other than that, it has worked for every font I have used.

It won't work on kit Kat. Rom tool box I mean. If you want some flashable fonts, there's a thread somewhere on here that I made. Either in general or Q&A. Someone posted a link and now I got hella fonts. I'd you're on 4.4x that is

I'm using KitKat.. Beanstalk 4.4 (latest one).. RomToolbox replaces the fonts on it.. I tried Carbon and a few other roms, and RoTB only replaced some of the fonts.. I rem the fonts you shared with me @Nigglenuts.. Those are great, and I'm sure the OP will find one he likes..

Unfortunately, My OGP is not rooted yet. But i'll give it a try if i decided to root my phone in the near future. But thanks anyway.
