PSVITA Font Installer v1.0 Released

Today developer cxziaho has released a new homebrew named Font Installer v1.0 for the Playstation Vita. Check out the release notes, changelog and the download link provided below.

Release Notes:
An app for installing the fontRedirect plugin, and selecting fonts using a GUI. Hopefully it isn't too buggy, but if you can do better please feel free to rewrite it!

Important Notes
Currently, the fontRedirect plugin causes certain games to crash on openening them (Gravity Rush, Ys 8 JP English Patched and Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 for example) and I wont be able to fix this for a while. This is not permanent, just uninstall the plugin. If you manage to fix this, submit a pull request and I will accept it! :)

fontInstaller reads fonts in ux0:data/font/, which can be either .otf or .ttf. It reads up to 256 font files before stopping.

Getting Started
Install the VPK file, open it and wait for the plugin to be installed. Add fonts to ux0:data/font/ and open the app again (this can be done before initial install as well). Select a font in the app and press start, then your enter button, CIRCLE or CROSS. Your Vita should restart with this new font, and will keep this font unless you boot without plugins or change font.

Assuming you have the VitaSDK toolchain:
Before this, install my custom libvita2d Fork which adds font info functions (make then make install).

git clone
cd fontInstaller/module
mkdir build && cd build
cmake ..
cd ../
mkdir build && cd build
cmake ..

Your config.txt is backed up to ux0:data/font/backup.txt, so if this corrupts it for some reason your config will be there.
The current font name is stored in ux0:data/font/config.txt so you can change that directly.
