So, apparently, even though my S22 is rooted, I can't put fonts into that folder.
Is there an easy way to work around the read-only state of the system dir? The normal routes don't seem to work anymore. I can't mount it RW.
Super annoyed by those new restricted android systems, that don't even allow write permissions for a root user. What good is having 'root' status, if it isn't really root? Who invented that nonsensical idea? Must be google.

It's RO only since A11.
