[CWM][MOD] Indian languages fonts as zip file for flashing through CWM
Flash desi_fonts_JB.4.2.x.zip for Android 4.2.x (by ametarasu)
I was hoping that ICS will be having support for Indian languages like Panjabi but I am disappointed. Even Hindi support is in WebKit based apps and its broke in UI as well.
Since I am unable to do much in changing Android shaping engine, here is a flashable zip that installs the fonts in the /system/fonts
and updates fallback_fonts.xml in /system/etc
. Its better than overwriting DroidSansFallback.ttf as it does not break any other glyphs.
This will enable you to read the languages even though rendering is broke for Yuktakshars etc.
Currently it has following fonts for following languages in it -
If you want to see Android supporting Indian languages as soon as possible, I request all to star and comment on this issue in Android issue tracker - http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=4153
I have only tested this on my own Google Nexus S i9023 running on ICS [Android 4.0.3]. It currently works for ICS
If you want a language in the pack, provide me font file and I will update the zip. Also if you need to type in Android use this keyboard - https://market.android.com/details?i...=search_result
