Replacing default Samsung Emoji emoticons with Google Emojis on rooted Samsung Note 3

Your device needs to be rooted for this to work!

First, connect the mobile on your computer with USB-cable. Download, extract Emoji_Google and copy NotoColorEmoji.ttf file to the device SD-card.

Open an adb-shell on the mobile as root:

adb shell

Remount /system, so we can copy the file:

mount -o rw,remount /system

Rename the old file for backup purposes:

mv /system/fonts/NotoColorEmoji.ttf /system/fonts/NotoColorEmoji.ttf.old

Copy the new file in /system/fonts (your path may vary depending on where you saved it) and set the correct permissions:

cp /sdcard/NotoColorEmoji.ttf /system/fonts/NotoColorEmoji.ttf
chmod 644 /system/fonts/NotoColorEmoji.ttf

Remount /system as read-only again:

mount -o ro,remount /system

Finally, reboot the device.


Yay, Google Emojis appear!
