To install this patch, download the zip file and flash it using ClockWorkMod recovery or any other recovery which you use.

Please note that this patch only adds malayalam font to android. It wont fix the rendering issue. You can read texts on Malayalam, but it may not be in perfect rendering form.

Change Log:

  • version 0.1
  • * Initial release

  3. Does this patch work on Cyanogenmod ROM 9?, Please help for other font as well. I would like to get Kannada font enabled same way. 

    • Yes. It will work on CM9. Please specify which font you usually use in Kannada. 

      • Kannada font is “Tunga.ttf”
        Telugu font is “Vani.ttf”

        If you are too busy to generate similar patches, please could you mention the logic behind the “updater.script” file? Or point towards a page wherein the internal working is specified? Also how the xml.p file is generated…

        I think my scripting knowledge would be good enough to get this working. Thanks in advance!
