Default [MOD][ZIP] Samsung + LG color emoji for 4.4 KitKat

I'm creating this thread to provide the Samsung and LG custom emoji created for their respective 4.4 firmwares. This will change your stock emoji look to Samsung's or LG's system wide!!

The zips contain the ttf emoji file for the OEM, along with a fallback_fonts.xml edit to point to the new emoji file, and should work in any AOSP/CM or similar ROMS. Simply flash one of the following zips in your custom recovery

Scroll to bottom for screenshots!

Samsung Emoji
Download zip for Samsung

LG Emoji
Download zip for LG

in case you have issues, don't have/want to use a custom recovery or have a ROM/firmware other than AOSP/CM, you can extract the ttf file from the zip and manually apply the mod.

To manually apply the mod, you need to edit the fallback_fonts.xml file in your device located in /system/etc with Notepad++ or a root browser.
Search for:

Code:
     <family>
        <fileset>
            <file>AndroidEmoji.ttf</file>
        </fileset>
    </family>
and add these lines before for Samsung emoji:

Code:
     <family>
        <fileset>
            <file>SamColorEmoji.ttf</file>
        </fileset>
    </family>
or for LG Emoji:

Code:
     <family>
        <fileset>
            <file>LGColorEmoji.ttf</file>
        </fileset>
    </family>
Now to finish applying the mod simply push the extracted ttf file to /system/fonts set permissions to rw-r--r-- (very important!) and reboot.

To remove the emoji mod look for the following in the fallback_fonts.xml file for Samsung emoji:

Code:
     <family>
        <fileset>
            <file>SamColorEmoji.ttf</file>
        </fileset>
    </family>
or for LG emoji:

Code:
     <family>
        <fileset>
            <file>LGColorEmoji.ttf</file>
        </fileset>
    </family>
simply delete these lines, save, reboot, and you will be back to how your emoji was before. If you have any question, need help, or if this thread needs further clarification, reply to this thread and I will try to help out or make edits where needed.
