I am searching for a good android malayalam font and yet to find something really useful. I do see that some developers are trying hard to get this done, but I am yet to see something fruitful as of now.
You need root access for the current settings to working on the phone, and that too, on very limited number of devices. I will update you all when more information is available.

Malayalam Font (UTF) Works on Galaxy Note
My wife gifted me an Galaxy Note last week. To my surprise, everything rendered perfectly when I opened up mathrubhumi.com , straight out of the box, without any tweaking or coding or installation …. I am not sure if this is part of the Android build I am using or the device.
Malayalam UTF font works fine on all websites including Facebook. It’s such a delight to see those shiny letters showing up on my mobile screen!!!!
Stay tuned for more.
