I'd like to be able to read ?BBC ??????? - ????? ????? in Farsi.
I would love to find a way to read /write arabic as well, not just in texts but on web as well, any one knows anything about this please ?
I can't find the article anymore but I think you just have to be rooted and it isn't a simple process like just downloading a font pack or something.
How ? i am kinda stupid so if you can help me finding any articles or something that would take me thro the whole thing, step by step, i'd really really really appreciat it.
If I could find the article again I wouldn't have posted this, haha. Are you rooted?
i don't know if i am rooted or not
how can i tell if i am rooted or not ?
i know there is a good article here about how to root your phone, is that what you are looking for ?
what do you do after you root your phone ? where can i get the font packages from ?
the font package let you read/write or just read ?
Like I said already, I don't know where the font packages are. But if you don't know what root is, you need to do a LOT of searching. You're not rooted if you don't know what it is. There is a guide in my signature.
okay good, i can't do any of this at the moment as i am at work will probably do it wednsday tho my day off
so if you please ran into the font package please consider share it with me on here, thanks buddy.
Sigh, I can find the font package but can't get it to install.
I haven't gotten around to trying this myself yet, but I know "fontflasher" is in the market, I think it was around 3 bucks though. There are manual instructions here:
How to change fonts in Android? - Black God
But I'm not sure that's what you are looking for. I haven't come across anything for adding additional font support, I think these two just replace all fonts in the phone.
The problem that you have there is that the article was written almost a year ago, about 7 months before the Droid came out...so I think I would run into the problems I have been having, ie - not working.
I contacted Pete to hopefully get it included in the next ROM update so we will see what he says.
The font files are in the system/font folder. I replaced just one of them, and it turned out well. The trick would be finding all the necessary fonts to complete the set. Here is a setCPU shot.
