I beleive U-boot can be configured to not count down at all. Not EXACTLY sure how, but I'm pretty sure it can be done.

On the issue of having a spalsh screen, I'm not sure about that one. I THINK it can, but I have not done so myself.  I have, however, with uboot on other products, been able to get a splash screen up.   I'm trying to remember how we did that, but sadly, it's not coming to me. It was some program taht was run very very early on in order to put a splash screen up, but I can't recall the details, sorry.

I am looking to change some things about the boot process on my device.
Right now I'm using an Overo on the Palo43, with the omap3-console-image.

1.  Is it possible to shorten the "Hit any key to stop autoboot" countdown?

2.  Right now, the screen is black while starting up.  I would prefer a
picture (splash screen?) to be displayed.  I've been having difficulty
finding information about this.  There are a lot of instructions on how to
patch the verdex to change the screen on start up, but I don't even have an
image being displayed at all.  Is it possible to add one?

Thank you for your time.
