Installing keyboard language in Android 2.3


The first thing you will need to do is download the language pack for your language which I will suggest that you access this link that follows to get them:

You will then need to transfer the language to the root of your storage card. To do the transfer, you will need to copy the ‘.zip’ file as it is, and you do not need to extract its contents. Once you have done that, you will need to reboot your phone in recovery mode, and you have to do that while keeping the power and volume down keys pressed.

Once you have entered the recovery mode, you will need to take a nand backup, and thereafter you will toggle off signal and then verify first using the menu options. After you have done that, you will then go back to the root of the recovery menu, and from there you will need to ‘Flash ROM from SD Card’ which will enable you to select the language pack that you had transferred to the phone, and lastly you will reboot the device.

Installing keyboard language in Android 2.3


The Samsung P1000 Galaxy Tab runs on Android 2.2 Froyo and is upgradable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Since it is upgradable to version 2.3, there should be no problem on the operation of the device. When you setup your Android device, you select a specific system language which sets the language for menus and messages. This language you selected will also be the default input language.

But in Android, you don’t have to stick to only one language for your keyboard. The user can select multiple languages and then easily switch between them. If you already updated your device to Android 2.3, here’s how to select a different language. Go to Settings. Scroll down and tap “Input languages”. Select the additional languages you want to enable.

Once you’ve done that, if you are composing a message, just swipe the space bar to either left or right to switch between the languages you selected. On the other hand, if you want to install a language pack, here’s how to do it. First, download the language pack for your language from the list below:

Once downloaded, copy it to the root of your memory card. Copy the ZIP file as it is, don’t extract its contents. Restart your device in recovery mode by holding the volume down and power buttons simultaneously. Once you are in recovery mode, make a nand backup and toggle off signal verify first. When you are done, go back to the start of the recovery menu then select “Flash ROM from SD Card” to select the language pack you copied.

Verify by following the instructions. Once the flash is finished, restart the device and you are done.
