Can't Hide Boot Messages,system ignores cmdline.txt content

Sat Dec 10, 2016 5:27 pm

Hi,
I have been hiding boot messages on my pi v2.
Today suddenly boot messages show up again.
Here is my cmdline.txt:

Code: Select all

dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=ttyAMA0,115200 kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty3 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline rootwait logo.nologo loglevel=3
This happened after I updated the system, but I am not sure.
As of this writing debian and kernel is up to date.
How can I hide them again?
Any help appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

We're now using Plymouth to show a splash screen. Try adding " quiet splash plymouth.ignore-serial-consoles" to the end of your cmdline.txt, or some combination of those three depending on what you want to see.

Thank you for your help.
I managed to get a grey splash screen with three dots in it.
Before plymouth I get black screen during boot.
Can I still have black screen with plymouth or do I have to remove it to get a black screen during boot ?
This is very important for me, thanks in advance.

You'll probably need to return to the original plymouth theme to get back to the effect you had originally. The command plymouth-set-default-theme allows you to change the theme. The original default theme was called "text" - so "sudo plymouth-set-default-theme text" will restore that. If you then remove the "quiet splash plymouth.ignore-serial-consoles" from cmdline.txt, as below, you should be back to the exact same boot process as before the release of PIXEL. You then need to redo whatever you did originally to hide the boot messages.
