Tongue Wanting To Replace Splash On K.F. Rooted

Sup Phandroid community, I have a Rooted Kindle, I utilized the KFU method and worked well with minimal stress lol.
I changed the OS as well, am running the Jandycane ROM 4.1.1, I utilized the method found here "http://www .nextgenupdate.com/forums/android-discussion/573688-how-root-install-android-4-1-jandycane-kindle-fire. html ." And it went smooth as silk. Running Strictly, Google store, and 100% free of any Amazon apps.
I love it and will use it till i can get the new Nexus 7.
My question is, I have all of Amazons garbage out of there, and would love to be rid of that K.F. boot screen as well, is there a way ?
I know it can be done with many Cell phones, My ZTE has a custom boot screen set up thanks to Phandroid.

I know it may not be by the same process as say replacing the one on my ZTE, but in essence it should be similar right?
This KF is a android device now for all intents and purposes, I would love to be rid of that fugly a** boot screen lol.
So what do you guys think, is it doable ?

bootanimation.zip is located in /system/media. so all youd have to do is find a boot animation you like for the kindle fire, change it to bootanimation.zip(delete the original one in that folder and replace with the new one. no unzipping required. reboot enjoy.
