Read & Send SMS in Urdu/Arabic

It is a well known fact that this forum has members from many countries around the globe. For those members using Arabian/Urdu as your main language, XDA member fehaan posted a tutorial on how to enable it on Windows Mobile devices.
.cab files have been tested on a HTC Wizard running WM6.5, but the developer mentions that it could work on older versions as well.

YES!!!
You can easily turn ur wm6.5 to read & write in Urdu/Arabic while at the same time send/ receive text in the same.

P.S. This method may work on early Windows Mobile versions but I have tested on my WM6.5 K-JAM.

Step-1:
Download the attached zip file Urdu-Arabic Language Support for WM6.5.zip) and extract all its contents to desktop.

Step-2:
install the cabs in their numeric order (e.g. first file is numbered as “1.Language Support WM6.5.cab” so install it first and then the cab numbered “2.***”).

Step-3 (optional):
install other keyboards with urdu/Arabic support and copy the fonts-pack to Windows directory of your Pocket PC in case if u don’t see the urdu/arabic letters on Keyboard.

Thats it!

Please reply me for any confusions/guidance futher. and if it works, send me your wishes and regards here…

You can find more information in the application thread.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office.

At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring.
