    Unhappy Special characters on russian ROM.

    Hi, I have a china phone and the russians make some awesome roms for it, but I have a problem, even after changing the language and the keyboard, all special characters are still in russian, I speak portuguese so I need "ã" ´õ" "é" "ç" "à" "ê", and none of these show up, how do I change that? Changing ROMs is not an option, reddit and xda have failed me, help please?

    You may wish to consider third-party Portuguese keyboard apps, some of which are mentioned here:

    OP here, thanks for being the first and only person to answer something. Nope, I installed swiftkey and I don't even know why but all languages latin special characters are in russian characters, I don't know about that but does android have that "utf-8" and "unicode" option hidden somewhere?

    Or try to replace the stock keyboard such as here (although if Swiftkey didn't work, the others may not either):

    Awwwwwww yeah, thanks bro your suggestions made me think about something and I solved it by myself. Problem is the system font, "roboto" can be found on google fonts and you can download it there for use on costume roms, websites and other. The problem is, there are a lot of "optional" special characters that you can choose, latin characters, russian characters, the more you choose the bigger the file, I imagine the russian that made my rom though only russians would use the rom and "saved space" (or didn't even though about anything) and selected only russian characters. So what I did was downloading the roboto's font family on google with latin characters and replacing the system fonts using a root explorer tool (mine is fx). Russian characters gone and my rom is perfect again.

    TL;DR : fonts have hidden optional characters when downloading them, I replaced the fonts manually.
