Bangla Font for Android (without rooting)

Newer versions of Android handles Unicode really well. This project is now deprecated and no longer supported.

Overview:

I have received too many requests for a Bangla Font for Android. Unfortunately Android is not so matured in handling Unicode and Complex Script and there was no way of installing new font without rooting the device, but Samsung has come up with a great way allowing installing fonts. So I have created this Bangla Font which will work on Samsung Devices or other devices with custom font support, so now you can see Bangla in Applications, but don’t get too excited, the complex script (Jukto Borno and so) may not appear correctly in some devices, also some carriers may create some problems. I have tried a lot to solve the issue but I couldn’t, well I said Android is not that matured in that way. So this Font comes without any warranty, so I haven’t published it in the Android Market.
There is a proverb in Bangla:
নাই মামার চেয়ে কানা মামা ভাল

So please try to be happy at least now you can see Bangla in your apps without rooting the device 🙂

Installation:

  • First of all don’t use Opera Mini browser for any of the steps below, use Android’s default browser.
  • Go to your device’s Settings > Application and make sure “Unknown sources” is checked. If you see any warning click OK.
  • Download the Font file to your Phone or Tablet from this link http://j.mp/banglaf .
    Either go to browser and type this link http://j.mp/banglaf
    Or Scan the QR Code below with your Barcode Scanner app and go to the link (by tapping “Open browser” button)

    qrcode

    Or Download the file in your PC and transfer to Phone http://j.mp/banglaf

  • Open the downloaded file by tapping, in your device and Install
  • Go to Settings > Display > Font style and Select BanglaFont, tap OK then tap “Restart now”.

That’s it. Now start your device’s browser and visit the link http://j.mp/bangladroid if you see the proverb (nai mama) above then it’s okay.

      Thanks.

      There are many fonts in the Android Market for Samsung, you can change the font in the similar way as above without rooting the device.

      For using the Root benefit you can replace the default Android fonts with any font.

    • Muahammad Usman

      ধন্যবাদ, দুওয়া কইরেন 🙂

  • sajib

    প্রথমেই আপনাকে ধন্যবাদ এবং এই প্রচেষ্টাকে সাধুবাদ জানাই।

    আমি Samsung Galaxy SII (Android version: 2.3.6) ব্যবহার করি। উপরের নির্দেশনা মত সবকিছু করার পর বাংলা দেখা যায় তবে পুরোপুরি কাজ করছে না, বিশেষ করে যুক্তবর্ণ এবং া, ে, ি, ী ইত্যাদি জায়গামত থাকছে না।

    • Muahammad Usman

      নাই মামার চেয়ে কানা মামা ভাল

      Unfortunately I have nothing to do at this moment due to Android’s limitation.
