uBoot splash screen instead of text

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Can someone help me on how we can set a uBoot splash screen (with a .bmp) instead of the running boot text?

 

Need this in a OPiPC, legacy (3.4.113).

 

Any help is welcome.

Armbian logo should be displayed in uboot by default. At lest on most recent assembly. Image is read from /boot by another patch.

@Igor

 

Unfortunately, it produced an error, new build, legacy, Xenial desktop/console

 

[ warn ] * [l][c] remove-boot-messages-from-hdmi.patch [ failed ]

 

Are you sure it works or am I missing something?

It used to work a year ago ... if it breaks, you will need to dive into the u-boot source code to see why it breaks. Perhaps this can be solved in a minute, perhaps you need hours. 

 

For Armbian, this patch is not relevant, so it is not maintained.

For those that have reached here trying to remove output text from u-boot the old patch no longer works.

 

The patch below works as of August 2019, however u-boot may change in the future.
