Rename file in System without boot

    I was messing around with the system fonts when I renamed one of the files wrongly. I believe I typed "Clockopia.yyg" instead of "Clockopia.ttf".

    Now my Nexus S won't boot at all, and I'm assuming it's because the system recognizes that it's missing a file entirely from the fonts directory. My question is, how do I now go in and rename that file without android booting? I have ClockworkMod installed but it can't mount the root filesystem to USB, only the /sdcard part...


    EDIT: Well, a bit of googling and I found Droid Explorer. Fantastic program, though renaming files in the system directory requires the "Copy files to device" button up top instead of a shell menu option.

    As noted in the edit above, happily solved with the use "Droid Explorer".
