I have successfully removed the logo and added a splash screen. But I still get text output before and after the splash image.
I am using Raspbian Jessie Lite and I think that this has something to do with systemd. So I tried the instructions from this page.
This is my commandline.txt
dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty3 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes quiet loglevel=0 rd.systemd.show_status=false vt.global_cursor_default=0 logo.nologo rootwait
I have also removed the plymouth and plymouth-show scripts from /etc/init.d/
No text should be seen now, but I still do get it. Why? How can I get a completely clean boot with only the splash image.
