Hello all,

I want to address an issue that is bothering the users of Android since G1. The android OS does not support complex script rendering.

The issue has been addressed in Google Code:
http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=4153
http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=5925
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=564480

But Google Engineers have yet to come up with a solution. Most probably the issue is caused by patent restrictions. Most vendors give support to regional languages in their regional firmware.

Now some users of Arabic had same problem. By replacing libskia.so and other files, it was possible to add arabic support to a non supporting firmware.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=749620
http://forum.androidspin.com/showthr...rabic-Support?

Again sridharrn suggests that Indian Firmware for X10 Mini Pro supports Devanagri and Bengali Script out of the box. (http://sridharrn.wordpress.com/2010/...od/#comment-36)

So I was wondering if some one could devise a hack that could enable the Cyangenmod (minicm) to support Devanagri and Bengali in browser.

This is how the present rendering look like:



And if suitable, could this thread be moved to the dev forum?

we need devs to look up for this problem. Only a build of CM7 Pro based on the X10 Mini Pro Indian rom could solve the problem...

there were many scripts available in Official Latest update for SE mini
it even showed Sindhi script which is rarely showed

it supported to type Arabic, Persian and other scipts

CM version still supports Arabic but not completely

i saw samsung ace firmware supported Urdu too

it will be nice for porting 2.1 language database to CM7 but lets hope developers do it, i am not a programmer otherwise i would do it

Can any of the users who have an indian vanilla firmware of X10 Mini pro please post an image of their firmware here? We could compare it with a UK firmware and try to figure out which of the files are different

is the Singapore version indian? this thread has the singapore version:
