Hello, My friend got this great idea of creating custom fonts to load on my iPad. He SSH'd them into var/mobile/Library/MyFonts, without me knowing. When he resprung it, it will no longer boot, I just get the spinning wheel over the GP logo. He didn't know that fonts had to be compatible with iOS4. Is there anyway i can fix this, I can SSH into my iPad still, but I'm not sure how to fix this.

I've already tried that, I'm using BytaFont, so I deleted the folder he added, that didn't work. Then I copied a font folder that is compatible, renamed it to the one he created. Still no luck.

Yep, Its kinda annoying because its the result of someone else, and the fact I might have to restore and lose my JB.
Also when I plug it in the charge, it keeps making the charge tone over and over. It turns on apple flips to the GP logo, then after about a minute so, I get the wheel of confusion.
I've read some articles about this happening to iPhones, but I'm running out of options.

Perhaps try to uninstall bytafont? SSH as root and type apt-get remove com.ipr.bytafont perhaps that will fix it. Otherwise PM me, and I can send you my fonts folder (stock) for 4.2.1And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix
