My CFW has custom icons for power button menu included.
Not all fonts do support those icons and since the release of the official PixiEnablers (including Nokia Fonts), I get many requests about the "broken" icons.
In this tutorial I am going to show you different ways to fix them.
whats the problem?
I used modified (default) fonts for my latest CFW, to make the power button menu look better.
The picture on the left shows you how it is supposed to look like with the icon mod I applied.
On the right, you can see a screen shot of my CFW with changed fonts. The fonts that were used, do not support all symbols (all of them are broken, except for "restart", different fonts may have different/no symbol support).
Btw. thanks to Thorsten for the screen shot ;)
There are several ways to fix this problem, choose the way you prefer below...
remove power menu icons by flashing
The easy way is to remove the custom icons. If there are no additional icons, new fonts can't break them.
To remove the icons you need the following tools:
-my CFW files
-remove power menu button symbols.rar (Nokia N8 only)
-remove power menu button symbols for translations.rar (Nokia N8 only)
-this package is optional in case you are using full translations by nekeule
Just open the ROFS2 from my CFW and insert the files from the package above. Save the changes to the ROFS2 and reflash your phone.
In case you are using full translations by nekeule, you need some additional files for your language from the second package.
Use the files for your language only (e.g. *.r03 for German, a full list of language codes is available here) and insert them in ROFS2 or directly into the ROFS3 by nekeule, it makes no difference.
If you are already running my latest CFW version, you can flash the
firmware using "update" instead of "refurbish" in Phoenix. That way you
should be able to keep your current apps, settings and personal data.
But I highly recommend to do a backup anyway, in case something goes wrong!!
alternative to flashing
Some of the files from my package should also work from C:\ drive .
To get rid of all icons without flashing you need additional tools like Tweaks, Rompatcher and probably Sysap.exe on C:\ (which includes domainsrv.exe).
-will work without a problem (its for "Restart" icon only)
-can also be modified with Tweaks & Sysap-Plugin
-only for profile names, profiles can be renamed in settings in my CFW
-probably requires modded sysap.exe from c:\
I don't want to go into any more detail with this method.
Some of the tools I mentioned above can harm your phone. If you are not careful with them, you end up reflashing anyway...
This is for experienced users only.
add symbol support to your font
This way is more complicated than reflashing, but its the only way you can have new fonts and the modified symbols.
There already is a tutorial about this on daily mobile, so rewriting it makes not much sense.
Here is the link for this solution:

Of course you can bypass all those steps, if you are able to find your favourite font with the symbols already integrated ;)
