Prompt [Q] Changing the boot logo

I've seen that this is possible on several phones but it seems that the way of doing it is not very consistent.
So I was wondering if this is possible for the Note 3 and if so how. Also if there is the risk of hard bricking the device by trying this.
I read several times that you could flash boot logos with the fastboot command
Code:
fastboot flash splash splash1.img
or
Code:
fastboot flash logo logo.img
, though I can't even access the bootloader as it seems.
Doing
Code:
adb reboot-bootloader

Yes, the boot splash is in the bootloader and yes, there's a definite and high risk of a hard brick trying to do this. The Samdung bootloader isn't the most friendly when it comes to modification.
