Hello everyone, I finally got my hands on another LG Ultimate, so I'll probably be around this section a bit more.

After installing SuperR's stock deodexed KitKat ROM, I noticed that Japanese Kanji were displayed in their Chinese variants. I attempted editing the fallback_fonts.xml to raise the Japanese font above the DroidSansFallback.ttf font containing the Chinese, but I found that the font I was trying to raise did not exist in the system.

Thus, I found files for the three Japanese fonts usually included in stock Android (MTLmr3m.ttf, MTLc3m.ttf, and DroidSansJapanese.ttf) and made a flashable .zip out of them. I edited the fallback_fonts.xml so that the MTLmr3m.ttf font would be first in priority, but you can change it to whichever of the fonts I included.

I enabled Japanese language by using an app called MoreLangs https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sightidea.com.setlocale to force the language change, since it isn't available in the language menu. Most apps translate, except for the Settings app, which I assume is LG custom-made or something like that(?)

This support community is amazi
ng, wow. Thanks to @rcunningham for making a central TracFone developer community!

Here is the download:
