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.
- version 0.1
- version 0.2
* Initial release
* changed system mounting to busybox for multiple device support. earlier it was supporting only ext4.

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.
