Boot Splashscreen

#1

Hello,

I have replaced the resin-logo.png located in the sd card boot partition splah directory with my own image. I use a png image 840x465 with transparent background.

At boot time my image is shown but there is a black cursor in the upper left corner that always appears ( see picture attached ).

How can I get rid of this black cursor?

Thanks

Hi @sugneberku

Thank you for your feedback.
I think the bootloader need to pass some configuration to the kernel…but I could not figured what conf data and how to pass it.
My device is headless so this has to be done via script I guess.

@rlev thats an interesting issue. Perhaps @zubairlk or @agherzan from the meta-balena team can offer some solutions here. It also might be worth opening an issue on the OS https://github.com/balena-os/meta-balena/issues

@rlev That is strange.

Can you please share the board, os, image combination you see that in?
i.e. pi3, 2.29.2, production/development?

And what is the output of cat /proc/cmdline

That cursor implies the vt.global_cursor_default=0 is not passed to the kernel which we do for production images.

I am using balena-variscite for the dart-6ul v2.31.5 rev1 “development”.

The “development” image is probably the reason.

Q : Where in the balenaOS repo files is “vt.global_cursor_default=0” set ?

Thanks

Looks like we don’t pass that option for all devices. I’ve made a github issue to track this work.
