Hi/SSA ji

Mostly punjabi community have complaint about punjabi fonts or language doesn't work in Android.
That happened with me also Nexus5. Here i bring a solution to fix this issue.

First thing that must need that is ROOT(Rooted phone).

There are two ways with you can completely fix this issue. With first step it works, but not completely. It just work in browser not with facebook or whatsapp status(You cannot read punjabi status).

First Step

Instructions:
1. Download Lohit Punjabi font from http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...1&d=1397712487 and you will have lohit.punjabi.1.1.ttf file in file manager/download folder

2. Download ES file Explorer and from the top left side (see pic) go in tools and turn on Root Explorer.

5. Change Permissions for lohit.punjabi.1.1.ttf from -rw-rw---- to -rw-r--r-- by just hold lohit punjabi file for 1-2 second and go in properties

8. Insert a new XML node at the end for the Punjabi font. Insert it after last node and before <!-- Note:.......>
Code:
<family>
<fileset>
<file>lohit.punjabi.1.1.ttf</file>
</fileset>
</family>

see thumbnails if images doesn't show.

8. Save and Restart your phone and ENJOY

Now it will work in browser or might be in FaceBook.

Second Step

if it looks like this pic in FaceBook. Then try next step, Its very similar to first step.
