Credit goes to Ayman Al-Sanad who helped create the localized version of the OS.

According to vRaMi, the solution successfully added Arabic support to an HTC myTouch 3G (Magic 32B) allowing the device to support Arabic in most of the applications.

To do so, you need to flash your device with the latest custom Cyanogen 4.2.13 and restart.

If you know of any other way to enable Arabic on Android, we’ love to hear about it. Shoot us an email at [email protected]
