This app is for systems with root access only. It offers 3 main functions:
  • Apply selected TTF fonts to the system
  • Backup system fonts to /sdcard/Fonts
  • Restore backed up fonts from /sdcard/Fonts
Place any TTF files you have in /sdcard/Fonts for easiest access.

In order for Android to reload its system fonts, the system must be rebooted after applying. Also, most ROM updates will overwrite your fonts with the default ones while installing. To easily restore, simply find a set of fonts that work well for you and then select Backup fonts so that you can restore them later. Be aware that this simply overwrites any existing backup you have, so you may want to save the original fonts elsewhere if you think you may need them.

It can be downloaded from the Market, or directly from the Downloads section of the github repository

Also, I'd like for my app to reboot the system on its own, but programming for root seems to be a bit tricky at times. If anyone wants to lend a hand, all the code is up up at http://github.com/openback/Type-Fresh

The app logs errors, so could you post the relevant portion of your log?

Hehe. If you have adb installed, then run "adb logcat" and it will show you the log. Then you can run the app and see what it throws in there.

Hey OP, if you need help getting root, check out my app I made a while back. It gets root then runs raw shell commands. Should be what you need.. direct link. I posted the whole Eclipse workbench so you can see the code. There's more than enough comments to see what to do.

I got the error could not remount too.
I think this is the relevant section of the logcat

Code:
I/Type Fresh( 1619): Remounting /system rw
D/su      ( 1628): 10107:10107 net.pixelpod.typefresh executing 0:0 /system/bin/
sh
E/Type Fresh( 1619): Error remounting: "Usage: mount [-r] [-w] [-o options] [-t
type] device directory"
E/Type Fresh( 1619): Could not remount, returning
I/NotificationService( 1033): enqueueToast pkg=net.pixelpod.typefresh callback=a
ndroid.app.ITransientNotification$Stub$Proxy@458ed0d0 duration=0
D/dalvikvm( 1107): GC freed 2286 objects / 120776 bytes in 118ms
Also, off-topic, what theme are you using for the notification bar in the screenshots? It's nice.
