  1. how can i change font of my mobile im uding spice 435staller nihance of icecream sandwitch

  2. Fantastic items from you, man. I have be aware your stuff previous to and you are just extremely magnificent. I actually like what you’ve obtained right here, really like what you’re saying and the best way wherein you assert it. You make it enjoyable and you continue to care for to stay it smart. I cant wait to read far more from you. That is actually a great site.

  3. WHEN I APPLY IT SAYS-
    “THE REQUEST OPERATION WAS ABORTED DUE TO LACK OF SPACE IN THE SYSTEN PARTITION.
    A TOTAL OF 0KB IS REQUIRED BUT ONLY 0KB IS AVAILABLE “

  4. Worked fine, except it doesn’t change the numbers in the clock of the lock screen, maybe I did something wrong because in step 4 where it says “Now open the System > Fonts and then copy all the three .ttf files from the unzipped folder and paste them into your phone’s SD card inside the folder named “.fontchanger”.”

    I copied 8, not 3 files from the zip to the sdcard folder named “.fontchanger” I didn’t do anything with System>Fonts.

    Did I miss something or does it not change the clock font?

  9. the password doesn’t work.. have tried many times.. please advise..

  10. Hi I’m just tryin to get some help if I factory reset my phone to which I’m on gingerbread 2.3.4DDkQ5 and install the the official upgrade can I still root my phone..
    If so can u tell me how please.
    Thank you

  11. Installed the font but it didn’t work on my SG2.

  12. Tested on Samsung SL 9003 and the font does not change after reboot

  13. Nice! Looks great on Optimus 2X. Thank you!

  14. I can’t see the system folder on my phone. Please help.

  15. The password is wrong so cant unzip the file

  16. I’ve tried downloading the file a few times. Each time I try to unzip it it stops at around 60% and the error log reads “wrong password?”.I’ve tried copying the password from this page and typing it in myself and also tried a lower case “a” at the beginning. None of them seem to work.

  17. The password doesn’t work.

  18. It says wrong password “Androidadvices” for the zip. Offcourse, I have tried with no quotes.

  19. Totally of topic in this article, but, is there any working 2.3.5 o 2.3.6 ROM coming to the Galaxy S? I’m still on 2.3.4, and, although it has some bugs, 2.3.5 was worse (the famous wifi issue).

    Again, thanks for all the hard work!

  20. I just wanted to note to others trying to apply this, the password is “Androidadvices.com” without the quotes, you need to insall the FontChanger (root) application. and finally, paste the font files in the .fontchanger directory in the sdcard directory. long press over the font and apply, then reboot.

    Thanks Androidadvices, the font looks nice in the Galaxy S.
