    Hi Sridhar,

    Nice to see your Blog, being a Kannada fan I am very happy. I am Deepak & stay in California USA. I recently bought Samsung Galaxy S2 from AT & T, as you know same problem of Kannada fonts. I am not able to read anything wrt Kannada news paper, Facebook & everything. I tried Opera Mini, it works fine but I want to make sure that it works fine with out doing anything as you explained earlier. I am not sure how to go the root of the phone to make the changes.
    Kindly request you send me the procedure how to change the .ttf file for Kannada fonts.

    Thanks in Advance

    I am trying to get the kannada font support for Android ICS. I rooted my Xperia Neo L phone which is running Android ICS 4.0.4 and installed Kannada font (Lohit-Kannada.ttf). I have also included the Lohit-Kannada font as family-set in fallback_fonts.xml in the framework. After that, I am able to see the kannada fonts render in browser but the complex script is not supported. Glyphs are not rendered in proper way, though it is just readable. Other indic languages like Tamil, Hindi, Bengali etc renders perfectly but my language is not rendering properly. Someone suggested me to go thru this blog. http://androidandsandu.blogspot.in/2011/12/how-to-add-indian-languages-to-android.html But i’m not able to find out where to make those file changes. I mean where is that lohit-fonts directory, where is the android.mk file? I’m not able to find those folders or those files in my phone. Any help please?
