    Latest MBA, Yosemite installed.
    Used TinkerTools and a guide to change the system font. All OK.
    Doing a reboot. Ah - it's broken...

    It starts, shows the Apple logo, progress bar. After a few seconds the spinning loading thing shows up. Goes very slow. Black. Spins. Black. And on and on. Doing the same if I start in safe mode.

    What to do?!

    Press and hind command+R simultaneously when you boot your Mac, it will take you to network recovery and then you just follow the instructions.

    Please get away from any apps that modify your system.

    Thanks for the post zamoht.
    I shall wait a week or two before trying similar.
    A 'definitive guide' will likely come out.
