András,

Did you execute update-initramfs?

How many kernels are listed on Cubic's Options page, ISO Kernels tab?

If you only have one, you will need to install the kernel files.
I suggest installing a kernel that matches the current running kernel version shown at the top right of Cubic's Terminal page.
See https://answers.launchpad.net/cubic/+question/688169.

Update intramfs to incorporate your plymouth changes...

    update-initramfs -u -k all

Then, on the ISO Kernels tab of Cubic's Options page, you should NOT select the kernel that has the note "This kernel is used to bootstrap the original ISO image." (This is the kernel file from the original ISO, and it will not have your Plymouth changes).

Instead, select one of the other listed kernels. (These are taken from the /boot directory on Cubic's Terminal page).

(Finally, Please let us know if this works by selecting the "Solved" button below).

What do you mean, "whats up with the themes thing?"

(If you have a non-plymouth theme question, I suggest posting a separate question, since the answer may be different).
