    Counterfeit Samsung, sounds like the rooting tool was incompatible or the fonts thing corrupted something.. Framaroot is a proven tool on known brands like real Samsung or HTC, but with knock-offs they're from unknown manufacturers, you're in uncharted territories, and if you damage the firmware, the phone is dead, bricked. And often there is no way to recover them, because need to re-flash the original manufacturer's firmware, which is not available for counterfeits. You could try sending it back, just say it went like that, but that's about it I think.

    If it won't even boot into recovery mode e.g. CWM, TWRP etc then the only likely way to fix it is to flash the original firmware.
