I have adapted the pi-gadget with some customizations, e.g. a custom splash screen. Currently based on the
18-armhf branch. I want to upgrade this gadget and the device’s model assertion to core20, and probably transition to
arm64. Before I start this endeavor, I’d like to ask two questions first to maybe save some trial&error time:
- The current psplash commit ref on all branches resolves to this commit from 2017. Is there a reason that newer commits are not included?
- There’s an open PR for pi-gadget by @ogra to fix the psplash setup. Is there a reason that this is not yet merged? If I understand @kokoye2007 's comment correctly, building on ARM fixes psplash even without the PR #74. At any rate, the PR drops the kiosk.autoconnect.service which looks correct to me. Are there plans for the mentioned
initramfs-based implementation to enable a splash screen for secure boot devices? I found initramfs-splash but haven’t tried it yet.
