How do I set the plymouth theme of a Live CD image created by livecd-creator?

So I’m creating a distribution based off of Fedora using the livecd-tools package and some kickstart files. I would like to change the Plymouth boot screen to something without Fedora’s branding (i. e. tribar with a different OS name), but I can’t seem to figure out how. Modifying /etc/plymouth/plymouthd.conf and/or using plymouth-set-default-theme do not work. This is likely because of the lack of initrd generation. So, what can I do to change this?

Make your own package based on fedora-logos or generic-logos and replace fedora-logos

rpm -ql fedora-logos |grep -i plymouth

sudo dnf repoquery -l generic-logos

replace files in /usr/share/plymouth/themes/charge/ .

While that didn’t solve my problem, that was actually very helpful. I’ll just use the generic-logos for now and create a package based on them later. Thanks!
