    Wasnt a droid there in Cm7 it was just a repeat of the Huawei logo. That image is in the boot.img, so there is no easy way for you to change it out.

    yes it can be done, but its not a easy process. You have to unpack the boot.img. Also its not a normal image file extension.

    here are the links, its done in linux too.
