Default [Q] how do i change the kernel splash screen?

so i'm in the process of testing out the bali kernel by drhonk, came from categorically worthless....

i just wanna know how to change the kernel splash screen to further personalize my phone.

i understand that these kernel devs want to put their trademark image in there, but the kernel splash image for bali just doesn't match my overall theme....

i have seen the video about the lfs partition for captivates, but i dont wanna risk it since i have a vibrant running a vibrant based rom.(bionix v 1.3.1)

any ideas?

You can change the "BIOS" splash image, aka the lfs partition, but you can't change the kernel splash as it's hard coded into the kernel.

That is incorrect, you CAN change the kernel boot screen, the OP's question is how?

You can change it if you download a new kernel, or download the kernel developer's source code, change the screen and then recompile the kernel.

Those are tthe ONLY two ways...

Default FUGLY splash screen

I'd love to change or REMOVE the splash screen in any if not all of these kernels how do I do so I am using MIUI so themes mean something to me and that doesn't match any of my themes z.z

Again, if you read the post right above you, it's the same answer. You must change it in the kernel source, and then compile.

There is no way around it.
