I tried to flash your Nokia Pure zip on my GSM Galaxy Nexus but I got a Status 0 error in CWM recovery.

Edit: I ended up getting it to flash by cooking up a new updater-script and using the update-binary from an AOKP ROM zip.

Thanks for letting me know. Could you please hit me up with the files you used? I'll update my ZIP.

Thanks for the Nokia Pure font. I didn't use your zip (just copied the .ttfs over manually) but it's a nice looking font. The stock ICS Roboto font is nice itself, but a little change never hurt!

No problem!

Here's the fixed flashable zip:

And here's a flashable zip using Segoe Light and Segoe Regular:

Thanks, I've updated the OP. Does your Segoe Light/Regular work on ICS? Did you modify the metadata to have Regular show up as a bold font?

Yes and yes. I also plan on making one with Segoe Regular and Segoe Bold.

That's sick. Are we talking about Segoe WP? I think it's the prettier version of Segoe for phones.

Thanks for the clarification. If you don't mind, since you're willing to customize the fonts for us, I will select a font I'd like you to fix. Especially since on the Mac there is no free software to do what's needed, it's like $100, a lot of money to simply fix a font!

It's just Segoe Regular. Is there any noticeable difference between Segoe and Segoe WP?

Yes, Segoe WP is slightly "friendlier"/softer in its pseudo-serifs. Here's a good comparison: http://viziblr.com/n...-typefaces.html

I think the numbers in Segoe WP are especially prettier.

Yeah I agree it looks a little nicer. I found a pack which includes Regular, light, semilight, bold, and semibold, but no italic forms.

Edit: I can't find Segoe WP Italic forms anywhere. Maybe they don't exist...

Edit2: I guess I will have to substitute the regular Segoe Italic variants.
