Install Malayalam font on android


Even after the release of new version of android, android developers still haven’t yet fixed complex script rendering or Malayalam language support. Here is one patch which will install Malayalam font Meera on any Ice Cream Sandwich based ROM.

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

  • version 0.2
  • * changed system mounting to busybox for multiple device support. earlier it was supporting only ext4.

For Android 2.3 or less


To type Malayalam in android, you can use Varamozhi app by Jeesmon Jacob. It is available in Google Play Store.

If you have any suggestion, or require any other font. Please comment below.

UPDATE: Added <=2.3 package.

  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!
