[Solution] - How To Enable Hindi Font Display On Android Devices

Rooting your android devices offers many benefits and comes highly recommended for enabling custom hacks and tweaks, Google Android 2.3.3 does not support non-english UTF-8 scripts like Devanagari by default but luckily if you rooted your device we can simply hack the operating-system to install custom fonts and enable display of languages like Hindi in default system applications.

Posted below are the download links and step-by-step instructions how to enable Hindi display support on Google Android 2.3.3.

After I did this hack, yes the hindi/devanagari scripts show fine but the chinese/korean/japanese characters do not show anymore from websites like http://jp.msn.com or in apps with any east-asian characters. I need the android stock DroidSansFallback.ttf again.

Hello friend.. the android font file you needed is available on below provided weblink.
Weblink: http://we.tl/4WvoZOP2IX
I was having this file so i updated on this online document transferring website. This link would work only for next 7 days from now. So you shall have to download this file before same. Chao..

Does rooting and replacing the font files, completely change the display which is normally in English ? Or does it enable us to toggle from English to Hindi for typing only ? I don't want to lose the English menu.

It only enables you to view content in Hindi written in Devanagari script. This would not change the English user interface display.

Please advise me what to do to read hindi font in micromax a84 android version 2.3.6.
