Asian Language Support
First of all thanks for your great work Chromium. This ROM is exactly what I have been looking for.
Since my device is German, it will try to use German as default language which leads to the physical keys (except home) not working which was fixed as explained by switching default language to English.
I had to flash the ROM several times (porbably my own fault: in the beginning I didn't let it settle at all before going to the next step, that might have caused some trouble like systemUI shutting down and Nova launcher messing up the display with artifacts).
During several flashes I just happened to see the initial setup wizard one time, and then it crashed when I tried to choose another language. That made it necessary to go to the language menu manually and choose English (UK) as default after the message "Android keyboard shut down" appeared several times already.
The setup wizard should activate after the first boot after flashing the ROM, I guess?
(I am using 4EXT, performing the "format all partitions (except SD card)" option before any new flash)
Is it possible it doesn't even start when the system default language is any other than English?
In the language picking menu, I already noticed that the ROM does not display any asian languages (Chinese, Japanese, for example). Some other foreign characters seem to be supported though (maybe hebrew, arabic, I'm not sure since I can't read them).
I anticipated that would be fixed after installing Google Japanese Input which I have used before on CyanogenMod.
That however is not the case.
Strangely, the characters are there (I can input them into Google and get the search results I would expect) but they are not displayed. All I see is white spaces.
This happens in the system menu, as well as in apps and on websites.
It's rendering the ROM useless for me since I currently live in Japan...
Is there any way to get the ROM to display asian characters?
