How to fix some mysterious problems.

After switching a font within the Bytafont2 app, my device screen went blank. I'm not sure if this was a normal crash? Anyway after rebooting my iPhone, it is now stuck in safemode. The "safemode" banner which usually replaces the system time is not there.. I have tried to find out what caused the crash. Apparently I updated the font which is now made for iOS 8.1, so by switching to that why has it done this to my device? After doing some research I realise this may be due to the mobile substrate some how being disabled by my volume button. My iphone 5S is all in good order, without defects I don't see how my volume control has caused this as it's not broken? Is there anything I can do to get out of this weird 'safemode' ?

Uninstall the font in Cydia and reboot/respring , Otherwise download crashreporter and see from there
