    • Hello all users I got the real trick of miui to use fonts go straight to settings-wallpaper-find more-and next is u can see a T option with in a box and touch that and u can set ur desired font.. Happy fonting…?

  3. No “T option” in MUI8. Or, did you mean 9?

    I’d love a font pack– that doesn’t require root.

    Where’s Xiaomi in this? How silly NOT to offer something so basic?

  4. Hi,
    I already received the confirmation from xiaomi but I still got the “Themes from third-party sources not supported”.

    I also try to find the T option with a box in the wallpaper page but could not find it.

    Your reply would be much appreciated. Thank you!

  5. I changed my font using these tricks but after my phone updated to MIUI Global 9.5, it’s not working anymore
