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

Nathan

+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.

Great font!
I really like this font. I have been using it since you posted it and I really enjoy looking at the phone now.
