I'm sure the was some mention of this by longsleep in one of the threads about either ubuntu or the kernel.. I'll see if I can find it again for you. I seem to remember it being a simple patch needed for to be made to uboot to enable this, so it was added... but I'm probably remembering it wrong! Dodgy

Ok, so on this thread there was a request for a custom boot logo (specifically pine cones... no idea why they'd want that! Big Grin ) ... longsleep added the necessary support patches, and it looks like this pull request list the steps needed to get create the logos / put them in the right place. Haven't tried it myself... but the author said it works... so it sounds promising!!!

Indeed it does work !  In fact, the new Gentoo image we are experimenting with lately has the four small pine cones prominently displayed !   ... as well, the drm patch is included in that kernel , so the formerly dysfunctional fbcon cursor is now once again also prominently displayed on the ctrl-alt-F1-F6 consoles !
