How to Install Hindi True Type Fonts on Android ?


Guys, I need to install Hindi fonts in a couple of android phones, so was trying to find out about it, from what I have gathered, I think Hindi fonts don't function on Android
It is for some senior journalist and bueracrat, so I will be happy if some of the android geeks could help me..

I tried the Opera mini trick and it works but not to a satisfactory level. I tried to copy and paste fonts to the system folder but to no avail !!

Any suggestions..
The fonts I am talking about are Mangal.ttf and Krutidev.ttf..

Thanks

Re: How to Install Hindi True Type Fonts on Android ?

well since nobody replied, I searched and experimented a bit and now I have done it...
for the use of other members I am detailing the method.. it is painless and so very easy.

Download DroidHindi.ttf from here.
DroidHindi.ttf

then use root explorer to navigate to the download folder and rename the downloaded font file as DroidSansFallback.ttf
then copy this file and navigate to system >> Fonts folder.
rename the file mentioned above there as DroidSansFallback-old.ttf or any other name so you don't accidentally delete it.
then paste the file you copied ad renamed from the download folder there.

Simple isn't it, now you will be able to view hindi websites..

Re: How to Install Hindi True Type Fonts on Android ?

Are you getting the rendering correctly means the fonts conjugation (legation)?

Re: How to Install Hindi True Type Fonts on Android ?

^^ No, the legation is not proper.. but atleast it functions..
what I am going to try is to install the mangal.ttf or krutidev.ttf.. and rename them to DroidSansFallback.ttf
then we will see, right now am busy with my pc, setting it right.
you can also try the above mentioned steps. and report back.

Mangal only has Hindi and Krutidev is not Unicode, so will not work and may mess with your system...
I followed this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=798380

I have done this:

Installing Hindi / Marathi like Devanagari Unicode Fonts on Android mobile. | chetangole.com/blog/

It does work fine. Atleast does the work of reading those non-sense hindi shayari's sent by useless nerds!
