    So I followed this guide here:
    Mounting /system partition in read-write mode in Android at Black God

    and then this guide here:
    How to change fonts in Android without font management tool? at Black God

    to install a custom font and now my phone wont boot past the "M" screen. I'm not really sure what to do to revert back to the original font to fix it if this is possible at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    (BTW, I didn't use adb to change the fonts, I used a terminal emulator on my phone to rename the files)

    Since you are rooted, try a factory reset or reflash your rom

    Hmm, I guess I am trying to avoid that since I know what is wrong, I guess if someone could help me get back into the system folder through adb to simply rename the font files again I could avoid reflashing and losing settings.

    I got it actually. Using adb pull and then push. Thanks for the help.

    well firstly can you get into your recovery? (Power and x 5 seconds) Im sorry but the only way your going to be able to do anything is if you flashback. (please tell me you made a backup before you started messing with system files?) If you dont have one then reinstall rom. (the entire reasoning is because if you cant boot your phone up then how are you going to get into system files? And im sorry about the other way, ADB isnt my cup of tea) Reinstalling rom isnt that big of a deal... i do it all the time, the only thing i really care about saving is my sms and i have a sms backup tool.

    Hey Jarllax,
    Could you please explain further what you did to recover here. I did the exact same thing. I thought I had the permissions on the new fonts set as they were supposed to be, but apparently not. My rooted (unrevoked3) HTC incredible won't get past pretty much the same place as you were seeing.

    ilikemoneygreen if i need to reinstall rom as you state, (I can get into recovery) , how would i start going about doing this?

    lol WOW this was a bump. Its only from august i guess.
    Only thing i can tell you guys who happen to start changing system files is to make a backup. Then reverting inst such a bad thing. Ive had to revert back many times from changing something just like the font. (bootloader many times) sometimes the OS just doesnt like it, and wont start all the way. (trolls attack, gremlins suddenly appear... lol fill in the blank.)
