Hi guys, here is a little guide how you can change the terrible LG emojis to the original Google or iOS ones.

Credits by me! Confirmed that it works with other devices also.

If you want to change it do it like this manually:


Root is required!!!

  1. install a android file explorer like Root Explorer or similar file explorer with root permission
  2. download the NotoColorEmoji_Google.ttf or NotoColorEmoji_IOS.ttf from my webspace
  3. copy it to /system/fonts/
  4. rename the NotoColorEmoji.ttf to NotoColorEmoji.old
  5. rename the NotoColorEmoji_Google.ttf or NotoColorEmoji_IOS.ttf to NotoColorEmoji.ttf
  6. change permission to rw-r--r--
  7. reboot and have fun with the new emoji
  8. hit the THANKS Button















Download Emoji:
Google Emoji
iOS Emoji
LG Stock Emoji

All Files as ZIP-File (Emoji.zip)

Nice guide, but it might be a good idea to call them "emoji" in the title, which is their correct term (whilst smilies are not far off the truth, these actually go beyond what was traditionally called a smiley)
