    Can the font for the lockscreen clock be changed ?

    I've searched and can't figure out how, if it's possible, to change the font on the lcokscreen clock

    That's the only occurrence of the font I want to change.

    Anybody got any ideas ?

    Thanks, Cyn~

    I know it can be changed as I've had a theme that changed it...however, it did change that font for all occurrences of it. Though, the only places it is used in system files are the lockscreen clock and the clock app, AFAIK. Widgets can use that font too, but I think you could leave a copy of the original font to use with widgets.

    The font is AndroidClock.ttf in /system/fonts. I just cracked open that theme and looked at what he did to change it. It looks like he just renamed the new font to AndroidClock.ttf, and the system uses that one instead, so I think that's all it would take. I would think you could leave the original AndroidClock.ttf in there too, but rename it to AndroidClockOrig.ttf, or something like that. That way you can still use AndroidClockOrig if you want to use the original clock font for widgets, etc.

    Other than that, I'm not sure where to actually change the font for just the clock...

    I'll have to try again, had a bad day yesterday... bootlooped the phone 3 times before I figured out I'd copied a .zip into systemui.apk instead of the folder where I usually store them.

    I tried to install a replacement font by creating a flashable .zip with the renamed font is system/fonts, musta FUBAR'D that too..

    Was kinda hoping for an .xml edit for the Widget, who knows maybe I'll find it eventually

    Gonna see if I can flash a replacement font without screwing it up...

    Thanks

    Yeah, hopefully someone will chime in with that or you'll find it...I haven't gone very deep with the lockscreen yet, so I'm not much help on that front right now.

    But good luck with it cyn!

    Well I'll be dipped (haha Dippa) - I must of been having a REALLY bad day yesterday. I renamed the font I wanted to use and put the renamed fonts in a flashable .zip and viola!

    Nice thing about this is it doesn't appear to have been used anywhere else... that I've found anyway

    Dippa and kryptykk like this.

    No Worries... I have used AbsoluteSystems to change the default font everywhere else from time to time, but it wouldn't change the clock, and that's the one font I absolutely dislike.

    all good... now off to work on my other Toy, the R1.
