    Try actually helping the person before saying something so unhelpful.

    @Flav0rflave

    Did you try putting fontswap back in? Do you know what font swap does? Maybe try reversing the process.

    do you think it could be from messing with the permissions on the fonts folder?

    well then how do i fix it? if it was from messin with the permissions?

    EDIT: ok i am relieved to say it went back to normal, i did what tesla said to put fontswap back on, then i set all the permissions for fonts to 755. it took like 3 minutes to boot up but it works now.

    Find the fonts folder and repair the permissions for it and the contents.

    The iPod is probably trying to access the fonts to render the text on the screen.
