YOUR DEVICE MUST BE ROOTED!!

Hello guys,
After trying few days, I'm able to made a font for 100% render Sinhala letters. This font named as "Sinhala Potha". Because it's based on "Iskoola Pota" Unicodes So I'd like to share this to Sri Lankan Android users. I personally checked on Xperia Jelly Bean device, and it worked 100%. Also this font should work for ICS too.

Caution:
You do everything at your own risk!!
Make a backup before flash!


Click here to Download V2
V1: Download

Easy method
-Download the zip
-Flash via CWM

-Copy files to "/system/fonts/" using "Root Explorer" or any other File manager able to access root

-Reboot
-Enjoy!

PS: This font not support for non-english (GREEK/LATIN) letters, also has some missing gylphs in this font. I try to fix this problem in future.
