It'd be very cool if you could customize the splash screen.

I think your conclusion is logical: almost any installer on any system uses checksums to ensure the data that is to be installed is correct. So we need to find the location of those checksums.

Hope you will be successful.

Edit: I composed my message while you posted your last message. I don't think that the size of the image matters (maybe the dimension). There must be somewhere a receipt file for the installer that has the checksums for the various files that will be installed. If one changes the boot screen, the corresponding checksum for that file must be changed accordingly.

This is only my guess, and the kind of checksum is also unknown.

Good to hear that you can downgrade to v26 without any problem. I think I will try the beta this weekend... :-)
