We have no sound that we will have Android KitKat (4.4.2) for our old Samsung Galaxy S2 which is still usable and well function.
Even last version of Android ICS 4.1.2 of Galaxy S2 is working enough with Khmer Unicode without root by the method is previous article but I’m still interesting to see a complete set of Khmer Unicode on KitKat.
Unfortunately Samsung will not provide any firmware update with this version on this model any more.
I decided to use custom ROM, rooted my phone and install it right away.
Now I have it!
With CyanFox ROM by following the instruction of this post.
Problems After Install
Some problems of course (but mostly solvable):
- Google Play : can’t install or update anything, the issue is about cache issue (error code: RPC:S-3), search the error code, you will find solution; it’s about clearing the Google play cache
- No SMS client but you can use Hangout or install a free one from Google Play
- No built-in radio program (I still cannot find one yet)
- Music Player: Use Google Player or install a free one (like MX Player) from Google Play
It’s built-in, no need to install any render or even font, it’s great!
If you need keyboard, I still recommend you to install MultiLing Keyboard or search for others if not like it.
How is it now?
I have used it for few weeks now, it seems fine for me but I identify that the battery is out so fast when we keep opening 3G. You have to learn a little bit on using the phone with SMS, calling, searching or adding contact etc but with first week, you will find it simple.
Of course, I still love Samsung’s ROM and its way, it comes with great built-in apps.
Let’s see later if there will be some customized KitKat firmware of Samsung some where.
My Expenses, Android App is an opensource Android application. It’s an easy to use expense tracker app with rich functionality.
I have been working on translation this app and I have kept giving the track of this translation in my forum.
It is now in the release 1.10.1 which is included Khmer translation on its UI by switching the language to “Khmer”
How to have Khmer language if no font
Khmer language does not include by default in Android and the Khmer rendering is included since Android version 4.x (Jelly Bean). And we heard that Khmer font is now included by default in Android version 4.4 (KitKat), we are waiting for it.
So to make Khmer language works for this app, you have to install the font and set the display to “Khmer”, to do so, don’t forget my old post: Install Khmer font on Galaxy S2 as following steps.
If your phone is not supported Khmer font by default, you can do as following setup
- Enable “unknown sources” installation (via Setting->Application)
- Install Khmer.apk
- Change font style
- Settings > Display > Screen display > Font style
- Choose Khmer
- Restart the phone
Only in case, you want to use the keyboard.
- Install MultiLing Keyboard
- Install Plugin.Khmer
- Make Keyboard setting

So now you can view My Expenses in Khmer language, let’s enjoy the app and thanks to the developer of this app.

Khmer Translation Status Update
I’m back on my blog now since has been away for awhile long.
Now I have been using my spare time beside working in a company to help localize some open source products into Khmer language. They are now in progress and hope to publish some update soon.
It has been already more than 3 months without any update on this main blog since July, of course, I was trying to make a general technical post or solution to my sub blog: Askit @ Osify but also do not have enough time to focus, you can also go to visit there as well.
I have also collect some interesting blogs feed to make a small app quickly which you can find it on Google Playstore
I am now still very busy with my work and study, I can’t make the blog well enough.
Thanks for supporting me by visiting, reading, comment and share any useful post to the world; I will be back soon.
