Hey guys, since u all can see that the "original fonts" of G1 is same as other phone and surely "boring". So i think it will be unique if G1 has the other kind of fonts. So here where mine come from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=480328
Well because i dont know how to take out the front so just download the theme down and install it. After than u can install a different theme over it and the fonts will be there still.
Or u can try to delete the framework and app inside the folder and install it (dunno if it will work because i never try it)
And if anyone else got any kind of fonts that can install in G1 please post it here for sharing.
Here below is some pic about my fonts:

Not sure of compatibility but i know that some fonts dont look right if they are too small. One example i can think of is segoe ui. it is a very nice font but doesnt look right below 8.

Font doesnt bother me, it is very legible and clean and matches most themes.

Thumbs up
I've done that too. What I really want to do is just make a bunch of update files that only contain the font to be updated. That way it doesn't take long to update and it would be a rather small file that people could hopefully swap out even if they have apps installed and such as opposed to having to having a fresh install of RC33...

It took me about a week just to get the nuts to root my phone to begin with and I'm down to 1 so I don't even have a test phone to mess up.

I'm going to read over the theme creation threads a few more times and see if I can do it alone. I will post my results to you sir!

Thank you!

Question though. Can I just replace the TT font files with a different set of them and re zip it? That sounds way to easy but I hope so. lol
