Whatever happened to the change of Jax's splash that was on PBE a while back?

I remember around the time of Aatrox's release, they showed a small change to Jax's splash that included a sort of demon coming from the light of his lantern in the background. There was speculation that it related to Aatrox and Jax might be from the same race as him.

What happened to it and did they ever say why they decided not to change it?

That's on his page on the website. A few champions have different art on the website (usually the Chinese art, but not in Jax's case), but it doesn't mean Riot intends to change them. Because they've been there for a LOOOOOOOOONG time.

IIRC it wasn't a change to his splash art, it was people sperging out because his splash had an "Darkin/Aatrox symbol" on the wall over to the side.

I remember the mspaint highlights like it were yesterday.

It's still there:

Between Jax and the lantern's flame, you can clearly see Aatrox or somebody who looks like Aatrox

Ahh yeah, that was it. I thought it was going to be changed to his splash in-game.

^ The change happened after aatrox

It's another Darkin

There's supposedly multiple Darkins. Jax's identity and power source is unknown, it's believed he's tied to another Darkin

Also, the horns are pretty different. You can claim they look similar because horns, but it's very safe to assume more than one Darkin is going to have horns given their theme, and the horns are similar but distinctly different.
