    That doesn't answer how to customize the live cd plymouth theme. Some ehere I have read about editing initrd.lz file in the /casper directory, but, such a file is not present in that directory in Ubuntu 13.04 . Jun 23, 2013 at 21:10
  • it does start the answer (but I did say: -start- here). You can trust me on that one :) The answer I made there is useable for 13.04 except we now work with dconf . You need to create a chroot environment with a downloaded ISO image load that ISO into the environment, alter it and then re-create the ISO. And no this is not something that is easy to do and requires thorough knowledge of the inner working of Ubuntu.

There's an answer to the following question on here:

How to change Live CD splash screen

Though, editing this file only works on the next non-LTS (13.10)
