Hi folks. This is my first thread on XDA. I'd like to share, not a new trick but I find it's quite useful. Here I make a batch script to change font in my Xperia U. I think it might work on any Xperia.

Simply install via CWM. In case it fails, just put it manually through respective file/directory (/system/fonts) and give rw permission.

Make a backup before modding

To make your own, HERE THE TUTORIAL
For full experience in JB, you need also replace the RobotoLight varian. Those packs contains only Roboto Regular & Bold and SOMA Regular & Bold.
Nonetheless, IMO those fonts are enough to replace almost whole UI

SOME OF COLLECTIONS:
Reindexed (10/22/13)(Still in progress....., will attach some screenshots) :

Noteworthy, Sweet Lily, Veteran Typewriter
Black Canchery, Gosmick Sans, A Dark Wedding, Cardinal, HTC Hand, Miss Smarty Pants
Helvetica Condensed and Helvetica Light
Cheeky Rabbit, Open Sans Regular
Jellybean font
Futurama Bold
Bradley
Century Gothic, DejaVu Sans, S60 Sans
Tabitha
Ar Techni, Chinacat, Neuropol X, Optimus Princeps, Polo Brush, The Pirate Bay, Times New Roman, Zekton, Zypher (Twilight)
MozTT (Firefox OS font) and SoMA
Advent, Cally, Droid Logo, Droid Sans, NewsGoth, OfWildFlower, Roboto Condensed, SchoolBell, SegoeUI, Simpsons, Sovba Regular, The End BB, Xpressive
Comforta, ForstCrush, LifebEach, Walkway
Love n Passion
Contemp, Ubuntu Light, Ubuntu Regular
BatesShower, Comic Sans, ORIGINAL font, roboto Light, SegoeUI, Sony Sketch
Opificio, Helvetica Neue, Rosemary
Exo
ChocoCooky, Arial, Arial Narrow


PS: I only mod the font's name to be compatible with stock ICS (ENGLISH). I can't make support for non-english moreover if the font hasn't got, also for some missing gylphs. About square bug in SYMBOLS key, it because different encoding. I don't really understand about this. but some fonts from WINDOWS have this, but not with UNIX/LINUX font.
