iPhone Dhivehi Quran Translation

After much hacking away at the iPhone's file system over the last two days, I've finally managed to get Unicode thaana stuff to display properly on the iPhone iOS 4.x

THE BAD NEWS is that people using older 2G iphones running 3.x firmware are still outta luck on the unicode front. I'm working on it though...

anyway as a by product of the aforementioned success, I've managed to put together a little hack that'll add the Dhivehi translation of the Quran (as found on http://presidencymaldives.gov.mv/quran ) into the alQuran app from alMubin.com

the package will be available from afxals cydia repo at m0bi.com/cydia so just add that up and you'll be good to go. also depends on afxals thaana package for iOS, and erica utilities. Also you'll need to have alQuran installed. *if you needed me to tell you that then....well...what the hell..?*

here are some screenshots of it in action! (I KNOW that the text appears on the wrong side...I CAN fix it I just chose not to for reasons of...elegance lets say)

on the licensing side, since this will inevitably "mix" with non-free code, I am releasing it under GNULesser/LGPL




Now if you're curious on how I got the "dhivehi" to appear on the keyboard selection popup ... well let's just say I'm working on it.

How to download this app for iphone 5?

SoE said...

Anon:I can only get it to work in iOS 4+ due to issues with thaana.

Farhan: you can install alquran and then the tweak from cydia. It should be available on a few repos. I am no longer actively working on this..
