Changing the Splash Screen on Your Raspberry Pi

 A rainbow screen appears before the Raspberry Pi's desktop GUI opens, followed by the Raspberry Pi's logo and command lines scrolling down. However, you may disable these and replace them with whatever image you choose by following these steps:

Changing the Splash Screen on Your Raspberry Pi

The Texts And Logo Must Be Removed

Related Articles:

Begin by uninstalling all of the default screens, as well as the four Raspberry images. Disable all of the bootup lines as well.

sudo nano /boot/config.txt
To remove the colour test/rainbow screen, type this in your terminal and open /boot/config.txt, then add “disable splash=1” to the file. Now go ahead and write
sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt

To remove the Raspberry logo, add “logo.nologo” at the end of the line.

Add “consoleblank=0 loglevel=1 quiet” next to “logo.nologo” to disable the commands and various kernel bits. Check to see if everything is on one line. Then press ctrl+X to exit, Y to save, and Enter to return to the command prompt.

Run the following command to remove the login prompt.
sudo systemctl disable getty@tty3

New Splash Screen Addition

As your new splash screen, now place the chosen image. Install fbi, the image reader, and the framebuffer to make the image readable. In order to instal, type
sudo apt install fbi
It will just take a few moments to set up. After that, we must create a file.
sudo nano /file/systemd/system/splashscreen.service
Add the following items to the file:
Description=Splash screen
[Service] ExecStart=/usr/bin/fbi -d /dev/fb0 --noverbose -a /home/pi/image001.png StandardInput=tty StandardOutput=tty

The fbi is told the image to display via the “-d/dev/fb0” instruction.

The fbi'status bar' at the bottom will be suppressed with "—noverbose."

If the selected image is the correct size, no editing is required; otherwise, “-a” will act as editor.

The image's name is "/home/pi/image.png." You can change the name of your image here.

The FBI has access to tty via "StandardInput" and "StandardOutput."

The "DefaultDependencies" will override the default behaviour of systemd.

Through the “After” option, the fbi will be loaded in the boot process when ‘WantedBy' is accessed, not before the file system (and hence image) is ready.

Get Your Pi Up And Running Again

Run the following command to enable your service.
sudo apt-get update
sudo systemctl enable splashscreen
Restart the Raspberry Pi and double-check your image.
sudo reboot

Splash Screen for Raspberry Pi

We may disable the default displays and add our preferred image photo/animation/video as your splash or bootup screen by following the procedures below.

The lifeblood of the Raspberry Pi and maker communities is the first and third component accessories. They provide new features and make it easier to complete projects.

SB Components, a UK-based official Raspberry Pi Reseller, was the first to market.
