    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?

    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.

    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!

    I just wanted to note to others trying to apply this, the password is “” 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.

      Glad it worked for you, it seems like our editor added a CAP A in the beginning of the password which is creating issues for others.
