You don't need to change boot.img just to add some fonts. In the hybrid rom thread there is a post by me how to modify the system.img. You can just change the fonts there.
1. Extract the update.img using "AFPTool.exe -unpack update.img folder". You can find this program with some of the flashers (I forgot which one, if anyone remembers, please tell).2. Mount the system.img with "mount -o loop system.img mountfolder". You have to use linux for this, but installing in a VM is enough.3. Copy the folder to a working directory "cp -r mountfolder my_repacked_system"4. Remove / add any apps you like from my_repacked_system/apps5. Make a new system.img with "mkcramfs my_repacked_system system.img"6. Flash directly OR repack to update.img using AFPTool.exe
