Have an Android phone, locate Outside Thailand, what do I do to type Thai?
Chances are that your phone is not equipped with Thai fonts beforehand.
If that is the case, you will got "squares" when you typing Thai using
any Thai keyboards in the market. You have two options.
  1. Wait for an official upgrade to Android R2.2 (Froyo) from your phone manufacturer, R2.2 comes with Thai fonts installed
  2. Manually copy the Thai font files into the designated areas

Manually copy the font files into the designated areas
The designated areas for the font files is "/system/fonts" and it is the **restricted** area. You will need to gain "super-user" authority to be able to access that area. The process of becoming "super-user" is called "rooting" in Android (comparable to "Jailbreak" in iPhone).

"Rooting" precedure varies for each models. Some are not at all allowed to be rooted. Please note that some manufacturers will void your warranty if rooted unless you can roll back to the original state and make it unnoticeable by the support service team.

Please search for keywords like "your phone model" and "rooting" for the rooting procedure.

For Thai font files and the copying instruction, please search for
keywords like "Android" and "Thai font", the instructions for copying
is the same to every models.
