Imx6 Kernel splash screen
The kernel splashscreen allow for a 224 color image, up to the full screen resolution. For the fastest boot speed, it should be kept as small as possible. The image will be centered around a black background.
To convert an image, for example, "mylogo.png":
convert mylogo.png mylogo.ppm ppmquant 224 mylogo.ppm > mylogo-224.ppm pnmnoraw mylogo-224.ppm > logo_user_clut224.ppm cp logo_user_clut224.ppm <kernel build sources>/drivers/video/logo/
Recompile the kernel following the guide in the previous section to have the splashscreen appear on all future boots.
Add to the kernel cmdline in U-Boot, "logo.nologo" in order to completely disable the splash screen.
