Why should you use Android Oreo and EmojiOne fonts?
Android Oreo and Samsung Oreo come with redesigned emojis that are way better than those of iOS.
EmojiOne, the open source emoji standard, isn’t too far behind with its all-new 2017 pack. Their font features a whole other kind of emojis called the “decal-sticker”.
Here’s a preview of this font.
You can download any of these fonts using the links below.
These new packs will give your device an entirely new look. My personal favorite is the decal sticker style and I highly recommend you use this font.
- Important – These fonts will not work without jailbreak or a functional file manager.
Download Emoji packs
- iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
- EmojiPort Cydia tweak
- Filza file manager (iOS 10 or above)
- Bytafont (iOS 9 or below)
How to install Emoji packs on iOS [with jailbreak]
Step 1 Install EmojiPort tweak from poomsmart.github.io/repo. Any third-party or custom fonts will not work without this tweak.
Step 2 Download the ZIP pack of your choice from the links above and unzip the archive.
Step 3 Open Filza file manager. You can download this app from BigBoss Cydia repository if you don’t have it.
Step 4 Backup the following files by adding “bak” at the end of the filename. Backing up stock system files is important and gives you something to fall back to just in case something goes wrong.
Step 5 Now transfer the [email protected] file you extracted in step 1 to /System/Library/Fonts/Core using Filza.
Step 6 Respring your device.
The exact method also works with iOS 11-11.1.2 firmware but I am yet to test EmojiPort those versions.
Step 1 Install BytaFont tweak on your Apple device. Remember, version 3 works for iOS 9 whereas versions 2 and 1 work for iOS 7-8 and iOS 5-6 respectively.
Step 2 Add this source to Cydia – https://vxbakerxv.github.io/repo
Step 3 Open BytaFont and go to Swap Mode > Emoji and tap on the requisite font to enable it.
Step 4 Restart springboard.
Step 5 To uninstall this font, simply open BytaFont again and restore the backup.
