thank you very much man, using JB now omg its siiiiiick. very very impressed with Google Now, but to me I don't feel it's significantly faster or "buttery". Are you using any custom launcher or just touchwiz?

I use stock. It is smoother and less lag.

greenld: so just backup apps with Titanium Backup and NANdroid?
sorry a bit new to the whole android thing :S


Which ever way you'd like :) the more back up you have the better. Never a bad thing to have more than one backup of backup :)

Good luck buddy. I'm loving the smooth JB right now (not justin bieber sorry)


If we do this....what happens when Samsung release the official JB to us?

Install from Market store and it will work. I you copy the fonts to Fonts folder and did not link it correctly then it won't work and if you stuffed up the fallback or replaced some fonts in there with your new one then it could potentially stuck in bootloop.



Best to do it from Play store if you are inexperience. Then just go to language and input to change your font type

This is official JB from Samsung. But it is not official Jelly Bean for Vodafone NZ. You'll have to wait a long time for Vodafone one to come out (LH1 update took almost 2 months and still nowhere to be seen). With Jelly Bean update from Vodafone, you would have to wait at least Hmmmm... 3months from now? My guess is probably sometimes in November or just before Xmas. So don't hold your breath just yet buddy.

To copy to font you'll need to either replace the system fonts or adding it into systemfont.xml or fallback_font.xml. Once you set the font family right then it will show up on font list in Settings.

But if your font is not the unicode font then it could make your phone stuck in boot screen. So it is dangerous if you do it that way. And you'll need root to be able to replacing or moving stuff to system folder.

Android does not gives you these freedom like Windows/Linux/MAC computer does.

Setting > Language and input > Samsung Keyboard > Continuous input [ ] 

And you shall get your continuous input on your keyboard.
