How to change the font of an Android smartphone: the prerequisites
Changing the font of an operating system is not something that happens every day, and you need a few privileges to do it. The typography of the system is stored inside the files of the system and to modify them you must have a smartphone root.
Scan your calligraphy or choose one
The first step in using our script as the font of the system is to digitize it. For this we will use an online tool named My Script Font.
- Download documents in PDF or PNG to digitize your writing.
- Fill the grids with your most beautiful writing. It is advisable to use a fine black tip pen. It is very important not to leave the frame under penalty of seeing the letters cuts.
- After writing all your letters, scan the document in a good resolution (between 300 and 600 dpi). You can scan it with your Android smartphone.
- Go back to the website and upload your document. You can change the name of your typography.
- Leave the TTF format and click on 'Start'.
Once finished, you will get a link to download your file:
If you do not want to use your own script, you can download other .ttf fonts to the Internet.
Change the typography of your smartphone
Before pasting your calligraphy, make a copy of the original font of the system inside IFont in My> Factory Font> Backup font. Then install IFont.
Save your TTF file in your smartphone. In the iFont app, enter My> My Font. Click on the red letters 'click this'. Look for your .ttf file, select it and click 'SET'.
Your device will reboot and you will finally be able to benefit from your own calligraphy within your smartphone. You can also use others if you do not like yours.
