I have rooted my Xperia Z. I tried to apply custom font through iFont (Segoe UI, basically what I did was copying the font from Windows 8.1, to phone's internal storage, Xperia Z\Internal Storage\ifont\custom), I opened the app, tapped on the font and then applied it. Since the next step is to reboot the phone, I did so. The phone is now in a bootloop state, it shows the SONY logo, then XPERIA, then the colorful wave. During the wave, it lasts no longer than 1 second, the wave animation always gets stuck halfway across the screen, then goes back to SONY logo, XPERIA logo, the wave and repeats the boot.

I have tried some of the methods such as booting the phone into Recovery Mode. I was told to power off the phone, start it, then when pink LED lights up I have to quickly press Volume Up multiple times until the screen shows the Android logo (which is the green robot). The situation my phone in isn't quite like the expected; since it's in bootloop state, I have to force restart it (by holding Power button + Volume up and wait for a vibration), quickly pressed volume up several times. However, the LED only lights up blue color (not flashing), the screen stays black and nothing seems to be happening until a force restart is initiated.

Right now I don't think flashing ROMs or restore phone to factory setting are the solutions for me because I only started using this Xperia Z recently and didn't make a backup (who knew it'd be so fast that I literally killed it).

By the way, is there a possible way to access files during the blue LED part?

You have working custom recovery? (cwm)?

Just flash the firmware using flashtool.
Just untick the datawipe box.
