    Welcome to Android Forums, vsokha.

    Here is a link to a web site which specializes in the Khmer unicode font as applied to Android and other devices:

    Khmer Unicode and Android OS --- [ Nokorsoft: Fix Khmer Unicode for Mac, PC and mobile phones ]

    That particular issue seems to be a new one, so it is a work in progress, perhaps you can get involved and help them perfect things for the Galaxy Tab by testing and doing bug reports for them.

    Good luck. Please return to Android Forums and report how things are going so that others may benefit. :)

    It has no way yet to get khmer unicode on android due bug report by developer but we still remove the block sqare by doing so.
    1. Root your device by using Z4Root (google to find it)
    2. Download Khmer unicode ttf file and save to any location in your tab (if you can't find where to download you can copy this ttf font file from your pc "Khmer OS.ttf")
    3. Download and install Root Explorer (google to find it) run this root explorer and copy your downloaded khmer os.ttf file to paste in system/font "make sure that you have touch mount R/W before touch PASTE
    -after copy this ttf file then cut or delete one of the file DroidSanFallBack or DroidArabic from the font folder.
    -rename Khmer OS.ttf to DroidSandallback.tff or Droidarabic.ttf

    I just know that is using Limon font so you can repeat the step #2 by copy Limon S1 file to system/font and delete AndroisThai.ttf from the system/font then rename your copied limon s1.ttf to AndroidSTHAI.TTF

    DONE and enjoy

    Come again if you can't root your device. Do at your own risk..

    hi, i am a new android user.
    why i can not change the the user to user root, just only when i stay in root folder is ok, but when i go to system folder, i cannot change to R/W. it shows only R/O. that's why i cannot copy font to paste.

    Ok try to remove both (z4root & root explorer) from your device and reboot
    make sure you have copy khmer os.ttf & limon S1.ttf file to your tab.
    1. Install Z4Root but do not run it yet
    2. Install Root Explorer
    3. Run Z4Root and root your device as temporary root when you will see a message that your device is rooted until reboot (do not reboot your tab otherwise your tab will unrooted)
    4. Run Root Explorer go to folder where khmer os & limon s1 font is stored then touch and hold on one of them (in my example I touch and hold on khmer os.ttf then select copy)
    Go back to root folder then system/fonts touch on mount R/W then paste the font to this folder
    Delete an unused font DroidSanSArabic.ttf then rename khmer os.tff to DroidSanSArabic.tff
    5. Repeat step 4 to overwrite limon s1.ttf with DroidSansThai.tff
    6. Download Mozilla Firefox from the market and enjoy your web surfing

    I have done this with own tab and friends' tab with a issue.

    Hi all,

    Sorry for being quiet for few weeks,

    Okey, please bear in mind that DAP-News and Kohsantepheap are using the Limon S1 font not Khmer OS (khmer unicode).

    As you've mentioned that you can mount R/W then it's meaning that your device is rooted

    Ok let try this again.

    Download this font, extract and copy to your device.

    Using Root Explorer to delete DroidSansArabic & DroidSansThai from /system/fonts (make sure you mount R/W)

    Go to the font folder that you have downloaded and copy one by one DroidSansArabic & DroidSansThai to /system/fonts
    Download Mozilla firefox from the market then reboot your tab. Done.

    I have done this many time with my tab (Froyo 2.2) and few of my friends' tab, HTC Legend and Samsung Galaxy S also no issue.

    Now I am searching to root my Nexus S GingerBread (2.3.4)

    Default browser won't viewable for the khmer font so you have to download Mozilla Firefox or Dophin browser.

    Download Phum Keyboard from market then you will able to type khmer but bare in mind that the font is not fully render due to no script for unicode.
    Download Khmum Browser it give you full view of khmer font for all website
