When we talk about customization Android OS always comes on the top of the list. The freedom of customization ranges from SystemUI to lock screen and RRO layers. However, one thing which many users don’t consider is that most of the customization requires root access.

If the user doesn’t have root, he probably doesn’t have much freedom of choice. This means that the user can only change stuff like wallpapers or use third party launchers or apps to expand its range. But this can lead to significant performance drops and low battery life in some cases.

nstall Fonts on Huawei Devices with EMUI 4.X and EMUI 5.0

Same is the case while changing fonts. Not everyone likes the default font that comes with Android. The user might want to change it according to their own taste or liking. However, doing this without root on some devices can get challenging. Nevertheless, I’m glad to mention that now users can change their fonts without root if they are running EMUI 4.X. As you might have already realized this is for Huawei users only.

As EMUI 5.0 users must have noticed that the Font Style option is missing under the Display option. There is a way to get it back and the best part is that this does not require root access. Read ahead to find out.

How to Enable Font Style Option on EMUI 5.0

  1. Make sure USB debugging is enabled under the developer options (A quick Google search will tell you how to do this).
  2. Make sure to install the System-Wide ADB drivers (HiSuite drivers are also recommended).
  3. Connect your Huawei device to your PC.
  4. Hold Shift + Right Click» Open command window here.
  5. Type adb devices and hit enter (You will be prompted to accept the RSA key on your phone if doing this for the first time).
  6. Then, type the following command:
    adb shell settings put system hw_hide_font_style false

    and hit Enter.

  7. Finally, reboot your device.

That’s it! Now you will be able to see the Font Style option under the Display menu.

Note- There is a bug in EMUI 5.0 which prevents changing the Font Style. The Font Style will only change if the system language is set to English (UK, US, etc).
