Default Help!!

My phone (running the latest version of FreeGS3) is stuck on the samsung loading screen. I rebooted it because I installed a new font (something I haven't had a problem with before) but it's now been stuck on this screen for a good 5 minutes. Any idea what's going on?
Phone: Sprint 16GB Pebble Blue Samsung Galaxy S3
ROM: FreeGS3 v0.1.1
Recovery: TWRP
Launcher: Nova

Pull battery and try again. If nothing works, then reboot in recovery and flash a backup or reflash rom.

Experimentation remains the best catalyst for progression.

How do I reboot to recovery? I've tried pulling the battery but that didn't work. Do I just turn the phone on normally then press something?

How did you install the rom? Didn't you boot to recovery to flash it?

Volume up+home+power while turning on. Hold down all three until you see the blue flash at the top-left of the boot up screen, then release. Your recovery will load after that.

ROM - OdexedBlue
Baseband - LI3
Kernel - Stock LI3
