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

  8. = Option one: install fonts manually =

  12. # [http://softkeyboard.googlecode.com/files/usb_driver_1.6-r1.rar ADB tool], which is a part of the Android SDK.
  13. # You may need to install the drivers. Get them from [http://softkeyboard.googlecode.com/files/usb_driver_1.6-r1.rar here].
  14. ==Steps==
  15. * Connect your phone using USB to the computer.
  16. * Unzip the fonts to the ADB folder, e.g., "c:\adb\"
  17. * Change directory to the ADB folder.
  18. * Make the system partition writable:
  19. * adb root
  20. * adb shell mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
  21. * 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\"):
  22. * adb push c:\adb\ /system/fonts/
  23. * We're done - just reboot the device:
  24. * adb shell reboot
  25. = Option two: use recovery mode to install update =
  26. ==Required==
  27. # A rooted Android. If you want to know how to root an Android, read about it [http://haykuro.theiphoneproject.org/?page_id=35 here].
  28. # The update archive: you can download it [http://softkeyboard.googlecode.com/files/CM_fonts_install_ROM_UPDATE.zip here]
  29. ==Steps==
  30. * Copy the 'install_CM_fonts.zip' file into you SDCARD root directory.
  31. * Boot into recovery mode (probably pressing HOME while phone starts)
  32. * Select "Flash ZIP from SDCARD"
  33. * Select 'install_CM_fonts.zip'
  34. * Reboot your phone
