The current logo is only 37 pixels high, and is located in apps/recorder/icons.c

If you replace it with a 64-pixel logo, the bottom part will be overwritten by the version number/date, so if you want a fullscreen logo you need to remove that from apps/main_menu.c.

Since we show the logo while initiating various hardware, including the harddisk, we cannot load it from disk.
