In my earlier post, I have described how to root your Samsung Galaxy Tab using SuperOneClick. After rooting your device you can install Bangla font to view Bangla text written in Unicode. If you are expert in command prompts, you can use the steps as described my Mehedi. If you are afraid of using command line, you can use the method I have used. I am always afraid of using command prompt as small typos often create great problems.
Here are the steps you can follow to install Bangla font:
1. After rooting Samsung Galaxy Tab, from Android market install AndExplorer. This will be used as root file explorer.
2. From Android Market, install TypeFresh. Using this we will change the fonts.
3. Download SolaimanLipi or Rupali fonts on Samsung Galaxy Tab. Usually these are saved in /mnt/sdcard/download folder on your Galaxy Tab.
4. Now open TypeFresh. It will show fonts assignments.
5. Press Menu button and tap Backup Fonts.
6. Now tap on DroidSansFallback.ttf.That will show font selection dialog.
7. Browse to /mnt/sdcard/download folder and select the font you want to use (I used Rupali, as SolaimanLipi not showing correctly).
8. TypFresh will now prompt you to reboot.
9. After rebooting, you will able to see Bangla text.
In fact, there is no difference between the method I used and that one of Mehedi. What we have done is DroidSansFallback.ttf with our Bangla font (Rupali.ttf). I have done it without entering root terminal and without typing a single command. All is done by visual user interface and using freely available apps from Android market. I hope, many Galaxy Tab users will like this easy to use method.
