Sorry for adding the guide so late, been a little busy.

Adding Arabic support usually involves patching both Framework.jar and libwebcore.so files.

I found that patching libwebcore.so file causes crashes with the default browser, Gmail and Google reader. I've tried to patch the libwebcore.so manually and automatically using the method mentioned in this website : http://blog.devasque.com/?page_id=11
But it does not work. Also, Default android browser is buggy at best, so using Opera Mini which supports Arabic won't be a problem.

1-First you need to have your device rooted with any of the methods here in XDA. Also make sure you have the 1.1 version as I didn't try to add Arabic to 1.0 version.

2-Make a backup of your whole system using the method found here just in case: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1142983
You can also try CWM backup, but I didn't try it.

3-Download this file:
https://rapidshare.com/files/2199861...rt_for_NST.rar
Extract it, and Using Root Explorer copy the file framework.jar for /system/framework/, and copy the libandroid_runtime.so and libicuuc-arabic.so to /system/lib/
System might restart during copying files, try again after system has restarted.
Or
You can try the CWM flashable zip file:
https://rapidshare.com/files/1924264..._framework.zip
copy the zip file to sd, boot in CWM, flash file from sd.
Didn't try the CWM flashable file, but I don't find any reason why it won't work.

3- Add the Arabic font, I use the DejaVuSans. Can be found here : https://rapidshare.com/files/2414620...nsFallback.rar
Using Root Explorer copy the file to /system/fonts/ overwriting the exiting file. Reboot.
If you don't like the font, use any other Arabic Enabled DroidSansFallback.
All credits go to madmack.

All the methods are safe and all of them work.

I myself tried eded333 manual rooting as it was the only one available at that time, but I'm sure all the others work as well. Take a backup of your system in the current working state, and then the device is nearly unbrickable.

And Yes, once patched you'll get Arabic working in applications, open text files, pdfs, epubs (using Moon Reader+ RTL version or Nomad reader).

I already backed up my noo after update to 1.1
then i rooted with eduard nooter ( minmal touch - full ) using cwm

i meant which is safer for your guide cwm or manual replacing
