    I have a rooted galaxy s duos. I tried to change the font style using ROM Toolbox Pro and when I rebooted my phone it won’t get to its homescreen. its stuck on the SAMSUNG logo. the part when you see bluish flashing light on the background and “menu” and “back” soft keys’ backlights are on. cause I turned it off on the settings. also the part right after the booting sound. I think its on a bootloop. done everything I could even the ones you mentioned above but nothing worked. even tried to re-root it but still a failure. can you help me with this? please… I’d be more than grateful. God bless. Hoping to hear from you soon.
