Grrr I going to cry

Ok guys so i change the font using an app and after reboot the device get stuck at bootanimation.
The problem is that i can't have acces to system partition so i'm afraid my mojo is softbrick....

i try to update the device using fastboot command (c:/sdk/fastboot update c:/mojo.zip) but i got the "waiting for device" even when it is pluged

Do you have any idea of what i can do to revert the android ttf to stock ??

[Edit] Ok i have to thanks again Paul OBrien for his root method because i simply edit is own boot.img by adding in the superboot folder the stock font and addind line to the script to put it in the right folder and set correct permissions. I go into fastboot, flash reboot and it's finaly repair

Idk. Maybe try rooting it and see if you can get it to boot. It's very easy to root if you haven't done so already.

I know reading in one of the other threads in the mojo general forum that someone took theirs apart and there is 3 buttons inside. You might see if you can locate that thread on how to disassemble it and try holding down on a button while plugging it in. There is no known documentation on what they do but if your bricked what could it hurt.

I think rooting it voids the warranty?? which is why I don't get how MC can advertise instructions on their website.
You should raise a support request with them on their site.
Hopefully kitkat is around soon.
Good luck!

We've decided to take an open stance on rooting - it's your box to do with as you wish. Of course the obvious caveats apply that you run the risk of causing boot issues, as Dead-neM has found!

Dead-neM in the interests of sharing, could you detail exactly what changes you made to the script and exactly what you did so it's explicitly spelled out for anyone else who runs into the same issue?

Yeah, how do you mount the superboot.img and modify the contents?

Ok this what i have do exactly hope it can be helpfull so:

1/ Have cygwin + Android kitchen tool on your pc ( This software is use to decompile the boot.img and it can be find into xda forum ) So open it decompile the boot.img of Paul Obrien MmM3 ( Kitchen can't decompile boot if it have not system.img too so i decompile first the 110ww official zip rom and replace the boot img by the Paul Obrien's )

2/Go onto the folder of the decompile Boot.img : So open /boot.img-ramdisk/superboot/ there is a superboot.sh script open it

You can see all command. What you have to do is to put yours before the 3 last line ( mount -o ro, remount -t ext4 ........)

I type { cat /superboot/Clockopia.ttf>/system/fonts/Clockopia.ttf
cat /superboot/Roboto-Regular.ttf>/system/fonts/Roboto-Regular.ttf
chmod 777 /system/fonts/clockopia.ttf
chmod 777 /system/fonts/Roboto-Regular }

cat is used to move file and chmod to set permission

3/ Now i said to the boot img to replace file and set permission to it i need to put the file into the boot.img folder so i just copy the Clockopia and Roboto font into superboot folder

4/Now you can recompile the boot img using kitchen then flash it using Paul Obrien script

Enjoy i think you can put gapps with this method so if there is a courageous one here your welcome !!
