Cham language in Android 4.4

Cham script display on google search engine
I have modified Android 4.4 CyanogenMod 11 ROM for adding Cham font and keyboard. Cham rendering working well in both reorder and ligatures. Thanks to Google team. You can find my custom rom for Galaxy Nexus here.

The Android 4.4 CyanogenMod 11 ROM is for the Galaxy Nexus I9250 model only. Verify device model number by navigating to Settings > About Phone.

Back up data and settings using a recommended custom recovery tool, like ClockworkMod (CWM) or TWRP, as it creates a complete image of the existing phone setup. In Recovery, choose Backup and Restore and tap Backup.

Ensure the device is unlocked (not locked to a specific carrier) and rooted with latest ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery (v6.0.4.5) installed. Alternatively, install CyanogenMod 10.2 Nightly which includes CWM recovery v6.0.4.5.

Adding Khmer font to iOS devices

There is not Khmer official support in iOS devices yet, but iOS 7 allows you to add more custom fonts. The document for how to create a file to install custom font can found here.

I have created one file to add Noto Sans Khmer, you can download here from your iOS devices.

I tested and see the custom fonts work on facebook, youtube apps and for display song title in Khmer. Thanks for Andrew Cunningham for reference.
