Now add Punjabi or other regional language to Android 4.x (also to some stubborn devices)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/gene...d-4-x-t2917481

Angry on boxes in facebook,twitter etc. instead of Punjabi?
well some solutions r here:

If you don't want to root your phone then
option 1= install peacock browser form market(free). (tried on Motorola DEFY)

Option 2=install opera {worked greatly on Redmi 1S}
1. Type "opera:config"(or try "configpera" or "about:config") in address bar.
2. Scroll down and look for 'Use bitmap fonts for complex scripts' and select yes.
3. Click save.
4. Enjoy

These two options are only limited to these browsers,you need to open the fb,twitter etc. in these browsers.

option 3 {working greatly on Moto DEFY CM 7.2 but i'll not be responsible for any damage happend to phone}

1. Root your phone. (will void your warranty) {try this step at your own risk}
2. Download 'FX' from market and install root access from within the app.
3. Download 'DroidSansFallback.zip' attached file.
5. Open fx explorer and locate your file, extract it, copy the font, go to #/System/Fonts, then replace {backup this original file} already existing DroidSansFallback.ttf with the copied file. make sure you click on Lock Icon(in top right corner} before you paste font in fonts directory.
6. 'Permissions' should be rw-r-r.(to easily see this,change the view to list}
otherwise long click on copied file,select permissions.
7.after this successful copy operation, again click the lock icon to lock the system files. sometimes it shows an error. in that case, just hit back button, try here again.
8. if not successful in upper step, hit the back button one more time. now if u find the lock icon to the already locked state, unlock and then lock it.
9.exit the app.
10.immediately Reboot your phone and hit thanks!

To write in Punjabi,
install Gurmukhi Keyboard from market.

Oh interesting, thanks for making a walkthrough like that!
The only other way I've seen it possible is through apps like Panini Keypad

Anyways, thanks though, this is great!
