Default [APP] Font Changer 4.0.4 [29/09/12]

Description
Font Changer allows you to change the font on your Android device. Some (most likely people from the HTC Desire forum section) may be familiar with an older version which required flashing an update, however these two versions don't require it (check the requirements section for more).

Basically you can put your TTF fonts in /sdcard/.fontchanger/ (location can be changed in the settings) and then you can apply a font once they have been found by the application (inside Font Changer there are more detailed instructions on how to do this). You can also set the fonts individually using the advanced mode. It works just by copying the selected font to the system partition and overwriting the current font. Backup is automatic, although occasionally it breaks resulting in the need to fix the fonts manually or with an update (usually the cause of messing with the fonts alongside with Font Changer).

Font Changer used to only have a paid version for the past few months, but with the new Market changes I have decided to add a free version. While most cancellations happen within a few minutes after purchase, not all do... and 15 minutes is just too short! Plus some people are not in a country where they are allowed to buy paid apps. Anyway, that's my reasoning.

The application should be removed from its settings to restore the default fonts and density. More information can be found on its Market page and inside the application.


Requirements
  • root
  • system write access (aka NAND unlock or S-OFF)
  • busybox
  • custom recovery (not a requirement per-se, but highly recommended in case something goes wrong)


Reviews

Coming Features
  • Fix up setting custom website for preview
  • Set dark/white theme
  • Rework UI for the font picker
  • Rework UI for the density changer
  • Need some icons for the Basic/Advanced tabs
  • Add more fonts to be replaced in Basic mode
  • Check font integrity
  • Shake for a random font

OK, done. Although if your signature is correct and you have a GT540, Font Changer doesn't have support for it yet as I need some information to identify the device (the person with a GT540 who was helping me has gone somewhat quiet and I haven't managed to finish it without his input).

Lol. Allright. Good to know. "None support" does not mean "does not work for GT540", correct? I'll try it anyway so...

1. There are multiple rooting methods for the GT540, and some of them work with Font Changer and others don't. I'm afraid I don't have any specific information on this. If 1 works, then check out 2.
2. The GT540 uses different fonts than the default Android ones. I know which ones and already have the code in the application to make it work, however all I need is to identify the device for which I require someone with a GT540 willing to help.

Anyway, feel free to give it a try and see what will happen.

OK, your one works because you have CM which uses default Android fonts

You're welcome.

Version 1.7.1.3 has been released, per-user request.

It is now possible to specify in the settings whether the regular font should be used to replace the clock, or whether the default clock font should be used. Some ROMs make use of the clock font, others don't, so the option may not have an effect for everyone.

Doesn't work for me on rooted GT540 with stock Android 2.1 update. I am willing to help with any testing.
