Default Phone stuck at AT&T logo after font install

I'm running on 4.3 and I was installing a font using Font Installer and rebooted the phone. Everything seemed to go smoothly until it wouldn't get past the at&t logo. so i boot into recovery so i can mount the system and fix the fonts but it wouldn't show up on my pc. i tried to mount the usb storage and still nothing. i made a nandroid just to save my data and left it in the internal storage. my phone killed my micro sd so i couldn't place it there. the only choice i had now was to use odin to restore the phone. i got into download mode but my computer no longer recognizes my phone so now restoring it with odin is no longer an option. so now i really have no idea what to do. :/

EDIT: finally got odin to recognize my device by countessly reinstalling the drivers through KIES

reflash 4.3 and you'll be fine, just next time try an easier app that does not need ROOT
try myfonts from the play store that does not need root and DOES NOT PROMPT TO RESTART (easiest and safest way to change font) i have the app on my phone
i used font-installer and almost bricked my S3, since then i have not used it
