Unhappy [Q] [HELP!] How to build Samsung Flipfont apk in eclipse ?

Hi, i have problems to build a font apk in my Samsung S4.

i have setuped my font project in eclipse. But after i build it in my phone, and select my font( Settings -> Display -> Font Style ),
it alert error : " This font is not supported.Contact the font provider. Uninstall this font?".

yet, i have set the apk packname to "com.monotype.android.font.mysamsungfont",
and placed the mysamsungfont.ttf mysamsungfont.xml file properly in assets/,
and i have sign my keystore.
( i tried to sign so call testkey.pk8 testkey.x509.pem to my apk, but it alert the same error )

do i have to sign a special key store to my font apk??
(PS: i can use iFont to force to select my font.apk in Root mode, but i cant select the font in settings... )
But i don't want to use it in Root mode.

Help me, pls...

It doesn't matter if you built font package correct or not. Samsung has predefined list of font provider and names of fonts. Everything else will produce "Unsupported font" message. You need to patch SecSettings to allow to use any font package.
Samsung Galaxy S4 SHV-E330S: Optimus ROM (TW 4.4.2) & Kernel. CPU OC 2.7GHz, GPU OC 645MHz, non-KNOX bootloader, UHD/SM/360 Camera.
Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9500: Optimus ROM (TW 4.3), Perseus Kernel. CPU No-OC, GPU OC 700MHz, non-KNOX bootloader.
Past models: Samsung Galaxy SIII SHV-E210K & GT-I9300, Samsung Galaxy SII GT-I9100.

because it's certified by Samsung.
