Can anyone help these are not working in galaxy j7 max. M from india.
Got a Samsung Galaxy J3 Luna Pro and no way in hell to even root the phone. So do not even say to root it to get rid of the error that the font is not supported. That is BS.
I got the file to install on my non-rooted SG Note 5 Nougat (7.0), could see the fonts, but when I click one to install (apply) , get message “This font is not supported. Contact the font provider. Uninstall this font?”
If I choose no, it does nothing. If I choose yes, it wants to uninstall the apk file.
Flash the fonts via TWRP: https://www.droidviews.com/install-1060-fonts-on-samsung-galaxy-devices-lollipop-mm-nougat/
Yeah, that really helps when the phone is not even rooted and not a way to root it either. Jeez, give us something useful to do to get fonts on phone. Why even say without root?
Does it works on Galaxy J2?
It works on Android Lollipop without root.
didn’t work on note 4
If your phone is rooted, try this: https://www.droidviews.com/install-1060-fonts-on-samsung-galaxy-devices-lollipop-mm-nougat/
didn’t work on s7edge
I have tried this on my S7 Edge: https://www.droidviews.com/install-1060-fonts-on-samsung-galaxy-devices-lollipop-mm-nougat/
how to work in samsung A8?
It doesn’t work with my nougat note 5
If your Note 5 is rooted, try this: https://www.droidviews.com/install-1060-fonts-on-samsung-galaxy-devices-lollipop-mm-nougat/
Unfortunately it doesn’t work with S8+… Incompatible fonts it said…
I will appreciate a trick if it’s possible… 🙂
Wait until a root method is available for the S8+. Then install the fonts provided here: https://www.droidviews.com/install-1060-fonts-on-samsung-galaxy-devices-lollipop-mm-nougat/
It really works tried myself on S7 Edge (I am waiting for my S8+ to arrive).
The fonts were working fine in my S7 Edge and I was hoping they will go fine with the S8+ too….
Oh well, we can only wait till the MASTERS use their Magic TOUCH!!! :-))
You can now root your Galaxy S8: https://www.droidviews.com/install-twrp-and-root-samsung-galaxy-s8-and-s8-exynos-variants/
Thanks for trying to help…
Unfortunately I tried the method from here: http://www droidviews.com/install-twrp-and-root-samsung-galaxy-s8-and-s8-exynos-variants/ but all gone wrong!…
First the TWRP for the 8+ didn’t work as going to recovery the screen is dead (no touch…)
As I couldn’t restart the phone I tried the S8 link and this time the phone responded to touch in the TWRP…
Happy that I just had a wrong link I tried the rest of the instructions flashing the Magisx (in my excitement, without making a Backup…), couple of “red” messages during the root flashing fast enough to make it difficult to read and then automatically reboot to a Samsung message Saying that it need to reset the device as the security check failed and only choice the reset… Unfortunately after click in “Reset” button it din’t succeeded as had many “red” massages when it tied to reset…
Then I tried to flash the “no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip” hoping that it will allow at least the Samsung to reset the phone…
After more “red” messages during the flashing back yo the same Samsung message…
Despaired then I tried to flash again the TWRP and during one of the many tried we had a electricity “spike” in the middle of flashing it and after that I have a phone which I can only go to “download” or the dead/no touch “recovery” and the Odin can’t “see” the device even after I installed “new” windows drivers even the KIES/SMART SWITCH from Samsung…
Do you know any way to make the phone readable by the PC again? I may find a Samsung ROM to flash it then…
Sad to know. I just updated the instructions. What’s your S8’s model number?
G955F I believe…
Thx..work perfectly in my note 4 custom rom nemesis port note 7….
Glad to know!
not work on my galaxy s7
This one works: https://www.droidviews.com/install-1060-fonts-on-samsung-galaxy-devices-lollipop-mm-nougat/
Does not work on Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. You can install the app, choose a font but no matter which font you choose, you always get “this font is not supported”.
Doesn’t work on any samsung galaxy phone actually. Tried it on more than 6 models
Can you list the devices and their firmware version?
Galaxy A7000 – Version 5.0.2
Try this: https://www.droidviews.com/install-1060-fonts-on-samsung-galaxy-devices-lollipop-mm-nougat/
I downloaded it…but when i install it it says not intalled
Tried this on my SG Note 3, running on Kitkat. Unfortunately got parsing error thing 🙁
Thanks for the article. Does this work for anyone? Downloaded the file, clicked on “Install”, but it doesn’t install. I get an error message saying “App not intalled” and that’s it.
It does not slow down the phone. You are getting that error because the app is not compatible with Marshmallow firmwares. Try it on Lollipop or Kitkat and it will work like a charm.
ah sorry I missed that in your entry. So there’s no solution for Android M users without root?
Bro I need Fonts for my Galaxy A800I I was unable to get Fonts from any where on internet I think there is no Fonts available for marshmallow firmware……
On Marshmallow, you can flash custom fonts via TWRP.
I think if I will use TWRP then my phone needs to be rooted ???
Please tell me the total procedure of flashing custom fonts and the font file also…
This doesn’t work at all
Try this one: https://www.droidviews.com/install-1060-fonts-on-samsung-galaxy-devices-lollipop-mm-nougat/
Hi. Thanks for this, really good article. Does it slow down the phone to have that many fonts installed? thnx
