  • Why is Tecno removing font management from HIOS such a big deal? All

    Judging by the energy expended on complaining about the removed fonts (by recent OTA updates), it's logical to say that Tecno users do love their fonts. It would have been great to see the same zeal directed at a clamor for version OTA updates but that's another kettle of fish.

    Word on the street is that the font thing was a policy breach and had to be removed. Tecno has however promised to release an update before the end of December which should address the issue. We don't yet know if font (as it was) will be staging a resurgence or another font system will be making a debut..that's talk for another day anyway.

    This begs the question; if Tecno phone users
    can'tdo without their fonts' or find the phone 'boring' without fonts, why do we have to wait for Tecno to release an OTA update just to get a minor feature like fonts back? There are options like:
    • Deciding not to install the update (after reading the OTA release notes that tells you what's added & removed)
    • Downloading the stock rom / firmware of your previous build number and flashing using SP Flash tool (untick userdata & cache)
    • Rooting your Tecno phone before updating > extracting your font-changing apk (de-odex) or folder > Unrooting > Installing the update > Re-rooting > Re-inserting your font system
    ...among several other options .

    What are your thoughts? Why's the HIOS font so important to you and how far have you gone to get it back?

    Yes, I did come across several such cases but font changing existed (without need to root) long before HIOS integrated it. Users could move on with other alternatives (apps) instead of spamming every thread with font-related complaints

        Policy breach? lol TF does that even mean or got to do with fonts? Is that their backup story? You ever heard this occur on their fellow market brand (Eh Samsung or Sony or even Nokia)??? We've been patient enough & also heard their December promise so I'll give them the benefit of doubt that it would be fulfilled. I myself would prefer another font system upgrade but like the saying goes "If we no get font, wetin we GAIN" we want a resurgence!<br />

        Thank you for this thread <br />

            To be frank, the policy thing doesn't quite add up but there's no official statement on the matter so we all have to chew on 'dem say....'

                So it makes more sense for you to cough up N40k+ for a new phone than find a way to change your fonts on your current phone?
