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

    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?

    Please... we need fonts. I can't buy a phone and end up using it like my grandmother. Bring those fonts. Roll `em in.

    They (techno) sh'd tell us the app to use such that we can get back the permission to access and reset the font styles that we need.
