How to set 0 byte font files back?

My phone is a Huawei S8600, it is rooted and the bootloader is blocked. I rooted it using Proot and Ministro II, no other root applications worked.
It was two years ago and since then the phone was fine.
So, I decided to get different font files and I downloaded ifont. After reboot, the phone was font bricked. I tried Auto font unbricker but it didnt succeed.
I tried adb shell commands because Adb remount gives Operation not permitted.
I used Adb shell su and I set /system amd /fonts to 777.
Then I re-used auto font unbricker, my phone booted normally. After using Root explorer, I discovered that the 4 modified font files were --rwx-r-x. Which means the system cant use it itself and they are 0 byte files.
Adb shell su chmod 777 /system/fonts/droidsans.ttf says no such file and so on.
Problem is that it is on a bootloop, the animation shows and when it is about to start the launcher, it reboots again.
Now I am stuck, I guess brute force with Auto font unbricker could make it boots but some folders are reverted back.
Something is 0 byting my four files, droidsans, droidsans bold, droidsans fallback , droidsans arabic and I am stuck.
I cant mount even with authorization from superuser.apk.
I made /, /system, /hwuserdata, /cust to RW.
I hope I explained everything well.
