    Restore and start over is about all you can do. Unless you made backups of the original fonts and can SSH them back in.

    I have been using fontswop for ages and never had a problem. Though I do know other people who had problems with it.

    The wisest thing to do at this point is try doing a hard reset with power+home. If you do that, it should come up, but if it never does, put it in dfu mode and restore.

    DONT RESTORE!
    I had the same problem before and I fixed it by replacing the System fonts file with the original.
