Default [Q] How to change file permissions without booting the phone

I have rooted Sony Xperia C and added some fonts to /system/fonts. I have changed /etc/fallback_fonts.xml file and forgot to change the file permissions. Now my phone is not booting. Is there a way to change the file permissions without booting the phone?

Same thing happened to me. Tried to get a console through ADB, didn't work. Had to install the ROM again. The next time I didn't modify fallback_fonts.xml but renamed my font into an existing one and replaced the existing font. It worked.
