Font packs for changing rooted HTC EVO system fonts zipped for flashing

Evo-fontpacks Tired of the system font on your HTC EVO? Want to change it to something that's more you and less everyone else?

If your EVO is rooted, running a 2.2 Sense or CyanogenMod ROM, and has either ClockworkMod or Amon RA 1.8.0 (custom recovery images) installed, then you can flash any of the 77 font packs that xda-developers' fachadick has packaged in convenient .zip files for us.

You already know how to flash a .zip, so the "hard" part is simply deciding which font you want. Each pack only changes the system font, so you can flash as many as you want (one on top of the other) until you find the one you like.

The stock font on the EVO is called DroidSans, so you can always go back to what you had before if you end up not liking any of the other fonts; you could also do a Nandroid backup before flashing the fonts and then restore the backup if you want to go back. Not all fonts are created equally and fachadick says that some could slow down your ROM and/or web browser, so keep that in mind while you're experimenting.

That's the Sony Sketch font you're looking at above. You can see screenshots from fachadick's blog of the Kudasai and Calvin & Hobbes fonts below, and of course you can check out all the fonts on your own EVO by visiting the xda-developers thread at the link beneath the pics.

  • Some of these fonts look great! This is one of the things I love about the Android community. People put time and effort and money into projects that will help others and the developer will likely never see any compensation. That’s why I always donate something to a developer when available.

    +1 The Android community is as talented and passionate as it is active. I never dreamed I’d purchase as many apps as I have but when I come across an app (or ROM) that is really good, and there are many, I’m happy to donate.

  • Great stuff. Wasn’t too keen on the font used in Myn’s ROM and wanted something different than stock. Changed to font Decker.

  • I haven’t flashed the file yet, but I downloaded Black Chancery. It’s probably a tad arabesque or medieval for more practical tastes, but I like it… probably because it’s a lot like my own handwriting. Lol

  • well I’ve added a font pack and it wiped out my Evo. I don’t know if I did it wrong but luckily i had it backed up. I’m newly rooted and cannot find a site to tell me from point a to b how to flash zip.. can anyone help thanks

  • I have been browsing online greater than Three hours right now, on the other hand in no way identified virtually any intriguing write-up similar to the one you have. It really is pretty importance satisfactory personally. Personally, if perhaps all online marketers along with writers produced good content while you did, the online world will probably be additional very helpful than in the past.
