well, this is probably not an coinsidence. I have seen your BGRA8888 quirk, but this doesn't apply to Android actually.
I fixed it like someone fixed it for iOS:

    public boolean isFormatSupported(PixelFormat format) {
        GLFactory glFactory = ES2Pipeline.glFactory;
        switch (format) {
            case BYTE_RGB:
            case BYTE_GRAY:
            case BYTE_ALPHA:
            case MULTI_YCbCr_420:
                return true;
            case BYTE_BGRA_PRE:
            case INT_ARGB_PRE:
                if (glFactory.isGL2() || PlatformUtil.isIOS() || PlatformUtil.isAndroid()) {

It would be great, if you could pass the changes to me as well, since I have a backport (java6) from a backport(java7) running over here ;)
Otherwise, it could take a while.

Although google discourages to use them since they aren't part of public api. It can bring all sorts of compatibility problems (harfbuzz implementation has changed in recent android releases for example). Yes try pango if you have time to spare and share results please.

Hhm, this sounds like quite some work. Pango would probably the fastest way to do. Do you know
where I have to place it?
