Install 1060 Fonts on Samsung Galaxy Devices (Lollipop/ MM/ Nougat)

9

Android is all about versatility and customization and if you have a rooted device, you can customize it in a plethora of ways. Usually, we use 3rd-party launchers, icon packs, wallpapers and widgets to pimp our phone’s lock and home screens. You must have seen people flaunting awesome home screen setups on different forums and social media.

Customization on Android, however, is limited to just the home and lock screens. We can change the look of the user interface via a theme, a custom ROM or mod. Yet another way of adding a pinch of spice in your device’s customization is applying custom fonts and today, we’ll tell you how you can enjoy not one or two but no less than 1060 custom fonts on your phone. As the very title of this post states that the fonts provided here can installed only on Samsung Galaxy devices because they are compatible with FlipFont that comes pre-installed on Samsung phones and tablet devices.

In the past, we shared a number of font packs for Samsung devices, but none of them work on Android Marshmallow and Nougat firmware. If you own a Samsung phone with the latest firmware and want to enjoy more than a thousand fonts, you’re just where you should be.

These are just 4 examples! Now imagine having 1060 fonts installed on your device! Even if you change your phone’s system font every day, it will take about 3 years before you can enjoy them all.

Anyway, without wasting any more time, let’s proceed to the real thing.

Prerequisite:

  • Since the SamsungSans fonts package is available as a flashable zip, your phone must be rooted with a custom recovery like TWRP installed on it.
  • In case you own a rooted Samsung device without a custom recovery, you can still install the SamsungSans.apk file by pushing it to /system/app/ directory and fixing the file permissions.

Installing 1060 Fonts on Samsung Galaxy Devices (Lollipop/MM/Nougat)

Method 1: Flashing via TWRP Recovery

(This method didn’t work for me on S7 Edge running Nougat, but it worked on Marshmallow.)

  1. Download the SamsungSans_V6.zip file and copy it to your phone’s internal or external storage.
  2. Turn off your phone and reboot it into the recovery mode by pressing and holding the Volume Up + Home + Power buttons together for 5-7 seconds. To reboot your device into the recovery mode easily, you can use apps like Reboot Manager or Quick Reboot.
  3. The first thing that you should do after getting into the TWRP recovery is to Backup your current ROM as a safety measure. You can easily restore this backup in case your device is caught in a boot loop.
  4. Having backup up your ROM, go back to the main menu in TWRP and tap the Install button.
  5. Now navigate to SamsungSans_V6.zip and select it.
  6. Install it and then reboot your device using Reboot> System option.
  7. When your device boots up, go to Settings> Display> Font. On Samsung devices running Nougat, you will find the option to change the font under Display> Screen zoom and font.Fonts on Samsung Galaxy Devices
  8. You can now choose from 1060 custom fonts. Enjoy!

Method 2: Pushing the APK file to System/app

If you have not installed a custom recovery on your Samsung device, here’s how you can install the font package.

  1. Extract SamsungSans_V6.zip file. You’ll find a file named SamsungSans.apk inside it.
  2. Copy the APK file to your device.
  3. Install a root file manager app if you have not one installed already. You can use apps like Root Browser, Root Explorer, ES Explorer, or X-plore File Manager. In my case, I used Root Browser.
  4. Open the root file browser app and navigate to the storage where you copied the SamsungSans.apk file. Tap and hold the file and select the Copy option.
  5. Now go up to the root directory and go to /system/app/ directory.
  6. Paste the copied APK file in the /app/ directory.
  7. Now scroll down to SamsungSans.apk and tap and hold it.
  8. Select Permissions and set the file permission for the APK to RW-R–R– (0644) as shown below and select OK.Fonts on Samsung Galaxy Devices
  9. Now exit Root Browser and reboot your device.
  10. When your device boots up, go to Settings> Display> Font. On Samsung devices running Nougat, you will find the option to change the font under Display> Screen zoom and font.

  • True bit in this case it’s a matter of “install them all or none at all”. No selection in the matter. See better what I’m trying to point out?

  • The more the options the better! I have them all installed on my phone but like only 27 of them. The font package has been developed over years and the dev has included all fonts he could get and also those requested by others.

    You are not forced to install them. 🙂

  • Why would I want over 1000 different fonts clogging up my phone? That’s way to many.

  • You are right!
