Just a quick info after upgrading Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) on Galaxy S2 (Android version 4.0.3), Khmer Unicode font is not available even with boxes letter or question mark, it shows blank character with all Khmer Unicode words.

My Galaxy S2 info:

  • Android Version: 4.0.3
  • Baseband version: I9100DXLP9
  • Kernel version: 3.0.15-I9100DXLP9-CL431438 dpi@DELL176 #3
  • Build number: IML74K.DXLP9

It doesn’t show any Khmer Unicode on:

  • Keyboard: Phum Keyboard
  • On browser, other application like facebook

You can only use Khmum Browser to browse Khmer Unicode sites for website without webfont but…

Updated: 21/05

We can view website with Khmer webfont fully rendering on web page, see example with: http://ktop.com.kh/km/

See some screenshots (resolution is not good since I used low Camera)

Updated 18/07:

Cambodia Android User Group (CAUG) confirmed that they can make Galaxy SII fully work with Khmer Unicode without rooting the system. But need to contact them to install. See detail in Khmer for the announcement.

Hope, they release free version to install soon.

    I have the same problem on my SGSII. Do you have any solution?

    It seem we can’t do anything, we need to wait response from Samsung Cambodia if they will give their effort on Khmer Unicode or not. I’m still looking for some workaround solution, waiting feedback from Khmer unicode/dev. community as well;

    Hope we got some result soon.

    You can use Kie (plz download Samsung Kie), plug your phone and process update firmware. It’s safe, no issue to the phone. Just after update, you might feel that the battery is not last so long when using many program, it’s the issue of ICS 4.0.3 ~ with ICS 4.0.4 is OK but no yet for galaxy s2 (I’m waiting as well).
