Sinhala font installation on Sony Xperia V (Android)

You can install any Sinhala font from your mobile itself and use it in any browser you like with following instructions.

Preparation:

1) Root your device.
I rooted my Sony Xperia V (LT25i) with "towelroot" tool. No need to run complex scripts, just one click is enough.

2) Download a Sinhala ttf font to your phone and rename it to "DroidSansFallback.ttf" (or get a renamed file from here)
I have put this font file to "/sdcard1/DroidSansFallback.ttf" in the beginning.

3) Install a terminal emulator app from Google play store", I used this "terminal emulator"


Procedure:

Open the terminal emulator app and run the following commands in the given order.

1) Get root access
#su

2) Grant super user access to terminal emulator in the pop up window.

3) Get read/write access to /system
#mount -o rw,remount /system

4) Copy DroidSansFallback.ttf file /system/fonts
#cp /sdcard1/DroidSansFallback.ttf /system/fonts




































Now you can open your favorite browser and read Sinhala text, I used Firefox browser to test it.
