How to customize the boot screens

There are three steps: u-boot, kernel and X.

Changing the u-boot splash image

The u-boot splash image is on its own partition. According to ticket 1735:

To replace the splash screen image on the device you need to convert the PNG file to a compressed raw frame buffer content and then flash this into the splash screen partition.
For the conversion, go to svn.openmoko.org/trunk/src/host/splash/ and run
  ./splashimg.pl boot_image.png | gzip -9 >new_splash.gz
If your update process runs under Linux (OE package ?) you'd then execute the following commands:
  flash_eraseall /dev/mtd4
  nandwrite -p /dev/mtd4 new_splash.gz
If you update through DFU, you would:
  dfu-util -a splash -R -D new_splash.gz
Note the NOR also contains a copy of the splash screen. If you generate a new NOR image with "mknor", just specify the new image with -s boot_image.png, and it will put the "openmoko" text near the bottom of the screen.
