In the console during android's bootup, these are the last few lines:
bdev [blah blah... ]
Loading kernel...
Loading android image...
Booting...


I never see an icon (neither blue nor green). The crash happens exactly after the last line written above, and the screen then has a few straight lines (varying thicknesses) in different colors.

When you said, recopy the files, are these the ones you meant? :
  • android.img.gz
  • cache.img
  • system.img
  • userdata.img
  • zImage
Are there any other files I need to copy into my system?

Is there any danger in trying for a manual installation without uninstalling bootlace from my iOS? I've tried using bootlace to remove and reinstall, but it's always the same.

No, a manual install is probably the best way to go at this point if you can get the tools to work for you. (extracting the firmware manually is a pain.)

However, based on your description, you're phone is crashing right when it tries to load the android image. Android itself never boots, so there's likely something wrong with those 5 files you posted there. First thing to try is re-copying them. If you're using one file copy program over SSH, try another one. (in particular, avoid WinSCP on windows like the plague.) If I remember this correctly (I don't have my tools in front of me) the files are stored in /var/iDroid on the device from iOS.

The only other files that get used during the boot sequence are the firmware files, but those usually get successfully extracted by bootlace. I don't know where they get stored off the top of my head.

Finally, there shouldn't be a need to uninstall bootlace. A manual install just basically creates all the files on the device that bootlace would normally extract for you-- it won't crash if you replace those files yourself. It *will* undo your work if you try to re-install through bootlace again, but you're safe leaving it there if you want to tinker.

I copied the 5 files manually into private/var/idroid but there is no change. The phone still crashes right after "Booting..."

After copying these files, I re-extracted the firmware using bootlace. Once each for multi-touch and for wi-fi. These are the file sizes on my phone:
firmware:
sd8686.bin              - 120KB
sd8686_helper        - 2.5KB
zephyr2.bin             - 52.9KB

They match the ones on the driver's archive.

What do I do next?

If it crashes during the "Booting" part, the firmware (above) has nothing to do with it.  It is either android.img.gz or zImage that is corrupt.

If the image is corrupt, how do I address this? Wait for the next release? Or would it be possible to replace the corrupted file manually?

Just transfer the image manually or download it again via Bootlace.
