Now it's even easier, a special thank to @ngame Developer of FontChange

It works with Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile

READ CAREFULLY:
DO NOT USE OTHER FONTS WITHOUT BEING EDITED, CAN BE YOUR APPLIANCE OCCUR IN LOOPING INFINITE AND YOU BE BOUND TO A RECOVERY


Obs.¹ have done Interop/Unlok

Obs.² Enable Full FS Access

Obs.³ Having a registry editor (I recommend the CustomPFD 0.5)

NEW METHOD


1- With the Full FS Access mode connect the device to the PC and navigate to the C: \ This PC \ Windows Phone \ Phone \ Windows \ Fonts and paste the fonts source (attached at the end of post)

2- Edit the following records (note the value before editing so you can return if you do not like)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - STRING

PATH = SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts

KEY = Segoe UI (TrueType)
VALUE = segoeui_fontname.ttf

KEY = Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)
VALUE = segoeuib_fontname.ttf

KEY = Segoe UI Light (TrueType)
VALUE = segoeuil_fontname.ttf

KEY = Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)
VALUE = seguisb_fontname.ttf

KEY = Segoe UI Semilight (TrueType)
VALUE = segoeuisl_fontname.ttf

3- Restart your machine and see the result.

Default values of the keys, tks @ngame

KEY = Segoe UI (TrueType) = segoeui.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Black (TrueType) = seguibl.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Bold (TrueType) = segoeuib.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType) = segoeuiz.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Emoji (TrueType) = seguiemj.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Historic (TrueType) = seguihis.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Italic (TrueType) = segoeuii.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Light (TrueType) = segoeuil.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType) = seguisb.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Semilight (TrueType) = segoeuisl.ttf
KEY = Segoe UI Symbol (TrueType) = seguisym.ttf


TUTORIAL Editing Fonts by @MrMHK

1. open your font editing software (I'm using FontForge, just search for it, it's free)
2. open your fonts - the original Segoe and the other that you want.
3. copy from your font to the segoe: in FontForge hold shift key the drag from ! to ~ for full "English" letters, after selection just use Ctrl+C for copying.
4. go to Segoe font and select the same letters you have selected previously then use Ctrl+V for paste.
5. after the pasting done, on the Segoe font windows, goto File > Generate Fonts. make sure the type is TrueType then click save. igonre any caution and continue saving.
6. use the original tutorial to copy and use the new font in your Mobile.


Tutorial add EditingFonts.zip and Roboto font, tks @MrMHK :good:

Edit: add full fonts.

Do you add more fonts to use in w10m?

if you have a particular font in your mind I'll try to make it for you :)

I think these are samples of fonts that the author has placed, because they look good on Windows 10 Mobile, and you can use all fonts in Windows\Fonts folder.

be careful if you use a font that is not an edited-segoeui you risk your phone and may have to do a hard reset or WP8.1 recovery via PC

hey, ok iv been struggling
i got interop unlock, full FS unlock too
I navigate to the folder, paste the font, it says cannot copy

:/

use PC, don't copy from the Mobile File Explorer

---------- Post added at 04:58 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:54 PM ----------

so u mean, we can modify any fonts by setting options as per screenshot and it will work? or what? pls explain :)

let's call your wanted font "x.ttf" then you have to open the segoeui.ttf and x.ttf with a font editing software then copy the letters from x.ttf to segoeui.ttf replacing the originals after this save your new font and be sure it's TrueType then follow instruction to use it
