 6==Note==
 7The latest Cyanogen build (4.1.9.2 or higher) include the many glyphs! Including Hebrew and Arabic.
 8So, if you have a rooted phone, I suggest to install CyanogenMOD ROM [http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=448 get it here].

11= Option one: install fonts manually =
12==Required==
13 # A rooted Android. If you want to know how to root an Android, read about it [http://haykuro.theiphoneproject.org/?page_id=35 here].
14 # fonts (Cyanogen's fonts can be downloaded from [http://softkeyboard.googlecode.com/files/cm_fonts.rar here])

18==Steps==
19 * Connect your phone using USB to the computer.
20 * Unzip the fonts to the ADB folder, e.g., "c:\adb\"
21 * Change directory to the ADB folder.
22 * Make the system partition writable:
23  * adb root
24  * adb shell mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
25 * Copy the fonts to the system partition, by typing the following command (in this example I assume the fonts are stored on the local computer at "c:\adb\"):
26  * adb push c:\adb\ /system/fonts/
27 * We're done - just reboot the device:
28  * adb shell reboot

30= Option two: use recovery mode to install update =
31==Required==
32 # A rooted Android. If you want to know how to root an Android, read about it [http://haykuro.theiphoneproject.org/?page_id=35 here].
