I'm guessing you mean the boot animation (after the Samsung Galaxy Tab screen)?

system/media/bootanimation.zip

If you're rooted, and have write permissions set, replace the file with another of your choosing.

Believe he's talking about the Samsung splash screen not the boot animation after..I would love to know how...I know on my HTC evo you have to flash .img file in fastboot

Samsung uses a proprietary .qmg file, but I haven't found where it resides on the Tab. It isn't in System/Media like it was on my old Captivate.

Re: splash screens???
Actually I know how to do this. Samsung uses proprietary formats, but for splash its not qmg. That is for boot animations. I am working on this for everyone. I do not own a Galaxy Tab, but someone has donated a large sum of money and is loaning me a tab to work with so I can perfect a flash able zip for this. It should only take me a couple of weeks, consider it a WIP. I will post the zip or other instructions when I have it done

Depends... Does the galaxy tab have a S4 processor? When I get the test tablet I will have to examine the kernel to see where the splash screen is stored. If it is in the same place all it will take to get that script to work is a few minor script modifications because that particular one uses a assert get prop to make sure its d2vzw or another compatible device. (ie d2spr, d2att, d2tmo). I will post my results when I have it all done. I know its possible, but I could also make a flashable zip with a script that points to another location for the splash screen so you could load it in system/media with the boot animation and change it at will very easily like you can a boot animation. More information to follow. Please be patient
