It should have every symbol that the original DroidSans fonts have, but I can't guarantee that I don't need to tweak a few of them. They were automatically created by Fontforge using the new letters, so the orientation and positioning of the various modifiers might not be ideal.

- Boot to recovery
- Press Alt+X to get into console mode
- Press <Enter>
- Type the following commands:

mount -rw /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
mount -rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /sdcard
cp /sdcard/newfont/* /system/fonts
umount sdcard
umount system
reboot

+1 Worked perfectly!
Now I have my Star Trek movie font!! (for now!)

Am I understanding correctly that I can use any TT font and rename it and follow the instructions for the Home+Power button reboot?

I use the three buttons to reboot, then hold down the home button.
Then follow those instructions. I have multiple folders on my card, all the names renamed. You can put two copies of the font in there; and rename one DroidSans.ttf and rename the other DroidSans-Bold.ttf

Yes, use what ttf you want. Not all come out clear when small.

Fantastic, thanks! I keep tweaking it and updating the files, but this version seems to work fine for now. I'll let you know when I've made an incremental improvement that warrants a new update.zip (if you don't mind, maybe I'll have even figured out how to create such a thing myself by that point!).

It makes me smile to think about other folks out there using this font on their G1. Thanks for the feedback and screenshots!

I'm working on two refinements of the fonts right now:

1.) I need to double check all the math and points locations for consistency of character height and stroke width, etc. The version I'm using right now has some inherited discrepancies in that regard (from resizing it several times) that cause some weird formatting issues every once in awhile. Not catastrophic, but could be better. I plan to apply these fixes to the latest versions of the font already uploaded to make it look cleaner and more consistent across the widest possible range of sizes, etc. I've also fixed some of the oddball characters with accents, umlauts, etc.

2.) I'm going back to the original logo images I can get my hands on and measuring the letter heights, widths and stroke sizes and will generate a new font based explicitly on these dimensions. The goal with this font would be to create a font that when the word "ANDROID" was presented in bold, it would look exactly like the official ANDROID logo, and all other letters would be consistent with those metrics. This will likely be a larger project and may not be all that useful on the phone for a daily driver font (so to speak).

Glad to see some folks are finding it fun/useful!
