I'm using the u-boot bootsplash but is lousy as no kernel loading iteraction is possible:

-no loading scrolling bar

-boot console must be totally hidden or totally shown

 

On x86 systems i used some years ago a bootsplash composed by scripts and kernel driver, it worked perfectly, because it was possible to press ESC key to show the underlying console and also to send to /dev/splash a message or the progressbar status.

Somebody is using similar system?

If not i will try a porting of that (it was running on LFS).

 

 

Best Regards
