    I have always wondered what it meant. I tried searching it up multiple times but i couldn't find a clear answer to what it does or means. What is the difference between no screen init and screen init?

    When your console boot with a9lh, you can have it so you see the code (or a custom animation) running while booting (screen init) or a black screen only (no screen init) for a more "vanilla" feel.

    Is there a difference in boot speed?

    So small you just can't notice it.
