So after bouncing some ideas off of rwhitby in IRC last night, I wrote up a procedure on how to change the screens that bootie (the bootloader) uses. This includes things like the statuc (non-pulsing) palm logo, the USB icon when you put your phone into recovery mode and a few others.

All of the information and procedures is documented here.

Bootie Themes - WebOS Internals

Please be careful as you can mess up your bootloader if you do not know what you are doing. Here is the warning from the documentation:
