How To Install Custom Fonts:
? Copy the desired font (zip) file to your phone’s internal or external SD.
? Reboot your device into CWM/TWRP recovery mode.
? Do not forget to backup your current ROM before trying the fonts.
? In the recovery mode, select the“Install” option (in TWRP) or “install zip from sdcard” (in CWM).
? Navigate to the font zip file, select it and confirm the installation.
? When the font is flashed, “wipe dalvik cache”
? Finally, reboot the device.
Your phone will reboot and you will see “Android is upgrading…” message on the screen. You should now see the newly installed font applied to your device.
NOTE: Flashing any of the fonts ZIP pack will not add new fonts to your device. They would rather replace the original fonts found on the system/fonts directory of your device. That’s to say, you’ll be able to use just one font at a time. If you wish to try another font, you’ll have to flash it again.
