Lightbulb [Guide][UPDATED][10/8]Change Xperia L System Font

Hello,
Finally, i figured it out, how to change system fonts?
No need to download any app
Check Screenshots
Updated 10/8
Now you can Change font both of System+Apps
Tested only on Stock Roms

  • Change Whole Device Font


  • Requirement
1.Root
2.Text Editor (I use ES File Explorer to edit for .xml file)


  • Instruction
1.Download any .ttf font according to your choice from google or Dafont! For test download this font Angry Bird Font

2.I assume you've downloaded AngryBird font now change font name "angrybirds-regular.ttf" to "Roboto-Regular.ttf"

3.Move your font into "/system/fonts" replace and set permissions to "rw-r-r" (Before replace font Backup your old Roboto-Regular.ttf)

4.Now, Download Attach file extract it and move to /system/vendor/etc and set permissions to "rw-r-r"

5.Reboot your device.


It's very easy download any fonts according to your choice and rename your font name "Roboto-Regular.ttf" move into /System/fonts, set permissions to "rw-r-r" Done!

Feel free to try it and report back which effect you see.

bro you need to download it read instruction carefully. check instruction no.1 there's link for "angrybirds-regular.ttf"
download and move your "angrybirds-regular.ttf" "/system/fonts" and set permissions to "rw-r-r"
then go to "/system/vendor/etc" Open "system_fonts.xml"
You only need to change name.

Does it only change the system and launcher ? I don't see any change in apps like snapchat, ask.fm etc.

Phone: Sony Xperia L (C2105)
Rom: FXP CM 11
Rooted: Yes
Bootloader: Unlocked
Past phones: Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 -> Vodafone Smart 2 -> Sony Xperia L

Nope!
Only .ttf font file supports.
