[quote name='xaueious;7604]Get adb working' date=' then you can do those shell commands using adb shell. Fonts go into a folder on your sdcard according to those commands.[/QUOTE'] DearI try that already ,but it say system file read only , i don't have access to make changesso for that i ask for ROOTDo you have other way.Thanks
[quote name='ZilverZurfarn;7806]If I try to rearrange the commands to be entered' date=' I get this - The idea is to copy the fonts from SD to /system/fonts which wont work, as /system is readonly regardless of root or not. Only way to do it is to add the fonts to a /system image, and flash it to your pad. (Which again makes me wish for /system on a writable file system.)[/QUOTE'] HelloYou are right , i think like you say , but now i need to check the imgfile which pro can open it and rezip it again , then update my pad with it.i will let you know if i sucessregards
Yes you are right , i try to modify the img , but can't , it's not opening , i try many software , but it's encrypted .so , need to try other way of modify the boot img.thank u

That means we need to modify init.rc in boot.imgBut we have not been able to modify boot.img because there's some sort of CRC on it.

Wait I'm confused now. So you can't push to the /system partition at all? This wasn't what I thought. The system partition should be writable somehow. Did you try adb remount?
yes , but the same , not successful.most of the method on the internet i try lcukthanks 4 trying

You don't need to change boot.img just to add some fonts. In the hybrid rom thread there is a post by me how to modify the system.img. You can just change the fonts there.
RogerCould you put the link here and share the info , plz
