How to Change Font on S60v5 mobile phone

Posted on : 18-05-2010 | By : admin | In : Applications S60v5, S^3

If you have favorite font and want to use it on your mobile, now you will find out how to do it!

You must rename fonts in this way:  s60snr.ttf, s60ssb.ttf, s60tsb.ttf and S60ZDIGI.ttf.

Connect your mobile phone to PC via USB and choose Mass Storage mode.

Find folder Resource, and in it folder Fonts. If Fonts doesn’t exist, create it. Then copy those 4 files into Fonts folder. Restart your phone and enjoy!

for download click on the image of font

If in your Fonts folder are files with different names then those .ttf above, rename fonts exactly the same as what u have in Fonts (some have this files: s60sc_c.ttf, s60tchk_c.ttf, s60zdigi.ttf).

More fonts you can find on our Forum.

If you want to make those ttf files by yourself for font you like, then find on PC where are Fonts (TrueType). On Win XP; Win 7 – Control Panel – Fonts. Choose font you like and copy it to desktop or in some folder. Then copy paste the same font 3 times. You must have 4 copies of this font. Then rename those copies in s60snr.ttf, s60ssb.ttf, s60tsb.ttf and S60ZDIGI.ttf.

Just check if in your Fonts folder are files with different names then those .ttf above; if yes then rename fonts exactly the same as what u have in Fonts.

If you want your default font back, just delete or rename folder Fonts and restart phone!

If you want more fonts in your phone you have to make more folder Fonts (Fonts1, 2..) and then when you want another font just rename this folder into Fonts( and previous folder Fonts delete or rename in something else). About hindi, you have to find font which supports hindi characters

Hello,
i have been very happy to see the fonts change on my nokia x6 16 Gb, by following all the steps from this post. i even posted before, and for this i am very thankful to u..
:-)

Now i got a new nokia C7. I followed the steps (steps given for nokia C6, since both C6 and C7 run on symbian^3) of creating 4 files by different names and storing them in Resource>Fonts…. and it was working gr8..!

Now i got my firmware updated from Symbian^3 to Symbian Anna, and it seems that it does not support different fonts other than the default one…

Please help me brother… i want to see different fonts on my Nokia C7 anna…
Thanx..
:-)

I found this tutorial…for some guys after that Ovi store and Qt apps doesn’t work.

1. Go to Ovi Store and download the latest X-Plore and Lite – Font Zoomer (the free one, not the paid one).
Make sure you got FontZoomer Lite version 2.30 as this is the one that supports the Symbian Anna devices.
2. Download Nokia Pure Font from bit.ly/purefont. It contains the mobile specific glyphs too so you won’t see any “boxes” in here.
It even contains the symbols for the Silent and General profiles (the musical note symbols).
3. Copy the Nokia Pure.ttf file from the archive to your phone by Bluetooth.
Make sure to place it somewhere you can find it easily. The root folder is okay.
4. Now open Font Zoomer and change the font to anything (either Antykwa or Thyromanes will do).
Set the Font Size and Space to the smallest possible for the Lite version as I find this will give the best result.
You can’t set the Font Size all the way down, I think you can only decrease it by two clicks of the slider but that will be enough.
5. Apply the new settings and close Font Zoomer. DO NOT RESTART YOUR PHONE YET!
6. Open X-Plore, go to Menu > Tools > Configuration. Enable Show Hidden files, ROM drives, RAM drives and system files/folders.
7. You will then be able to navigate to C:\FontZoomer. There will be a font_temp.ttf file here.
Delete this file and then copy the font you wanted to use to this folder. Rename it to font_temp.ttf.
So if I wanted to use the Nokia Pure font, I will copy Nokia Pure.ttf here and rename it to font_temp.ttf.
8. Navigate to C:\FontZoomer\fonts and delete font.ttf if it exists.
Delete this file and then copy the font you wanted to use to this folder. Rename it to font.ttf.
So if I wanted to use the Nokia Pure font, I will copy Nokia Pure.ttf here and rename it to font.ttf.
(This step is usually not needed but do it anyway as a precaution and to ensure smooth operation).
9. Check again that everything is okay. Here’s the checklist:
– There is a font_temp.ttf in C:\FontZoomer and a font.ttf in C:\FontZoomer\fonts
– Ensure both files are identical to one another (easiest way to check: both must have same file size)
– Ensure both files are identical the font file you wanted to use (i.e. check against the Nokia Pure.ttf size)
10. Restart your phone and you’re done!

I hope it will work.

did you try to rename font in nosnr60.ttf, nssb60.ttf, nstsb60.ttf, S60ZDIGI.ttf!?
and copy this files on mem card, in folder Resource/Fonts

if this doesn’t work then try this:
make 14 copies of the font and rename them to:
arial.ttf
arialbd.ttf
cour.ttf
courbd.ttf
georgia.ttf
georgiab.ttf
nosnr60.ttf
nssb60.ttf
nstsb60.ttf
S60ZDIGI.ttf
times.ttf
timesbd.ttf
verdana.ttf
verdanab.ttf

[Reply]

I did it on my C6-01 and IT WORKS!!!
I dowloaded heiseigoths60.ttf from:
http://www.mediafire.com/?tyvohmzmmht
then via USB PC MassStorage copied it into newly created “Fonts” file, copied this single file 4 times, renamed as mentioned… and finally I can see Kanji, hiragana & katakana :D
Unfortunatelly I am missing some latin letters, but only those with accents or ‘tales’, so it’s a reasonable price for finally reading Nihongo :)

More fonts you can find on Forum…or download font that you like from the web, make copies and rename as it says in post.
