    Yes it is faster than the old V2.4 firmware, the boot sequence has been heavily optimized. You can view the splash screen using one of the options inside "self tests".

    You can change the splash screen time by editing the Settings.dat file using a hex editor. (It will be a user definable option in future).

    If you understand C stuctures, here's the layout of the Settings.dat file:
    Code:
    typedef struct {
      TCFG_LOCALE locale;        // Locality, used for date formats
      TCFG_UNITS units;          // Units, used for default or alternate units
      WORD arDelay1;             // Auto-repeat, inital delay in ms
      WORD arDelay2;             // Auto-repeat, time between repeats in ms
      WORD splashTime;           // Number of ms to display the EFILive AutoCal splash screen
      long date;                 // MRU Date
      long time;                 // MRU Time
      WORD fileCounter;          // Filename counter
      WORD lowPwrTime;           // Number of minutes before sleeping
      WORD alertTime;            // Time to display alerts
      WORD errorTime;            // Time to display errors
      WORD fileSystem;           // Filesystem in use: 0=None, 1=Internal Flash, 2=SD Card 
      BYTE unused[256-28];       // Pad to 256 bytes
    } TCFG;
    See image for more info.

    Great info! Changed it to BB as I wanted about 1500ms and didnt change and then tried FF (4096ms) still no joy. I will keep playing with it, its no big deal and your are very busy

    Technically yes. But practically, its not even remotely possible (I'm not throwing out a challenge by the way).

    Depending on your definition of a virus, anything other than the official EFILive FlashScan firmware could be classed as a virus (sometimes even our beta firmware behaves as badly as a virus ).

    There are safeguards built into FlashScan that prevent unauthorized code from executing in FlashScan.

    1. The flash memory is locked with a 64 bit key. Assuming someone could try 1000 keys per second, it would take about 250 billion years to try just half the possible combinations. And that's not taking into account that aftger each unsuccessful attempt, the CPU must be cold booted.

    2. If the key was cracked (and it is different on each FlashScan device), the firmware must adhere to a number of constraints, including magic 32-bit numbers embedded in random parts of the code and multiple 16 bit CRC values.

    3. The virus writer would need to have knowledge of the inner workings of the FlashScan RTOS. None of that is available outside of EFILive.

    So there really is no practical way a virus or any other non-official EFILive code (or code damaged by faulty hardware) could execute on the FlashScan device.

    Anytime FlashScan detects the firmware has been modified/damaged in any way, it will go into deadpoll mode and flash the two orange LEDs (assuming it is not too brain-dead to do even that simple task). So you will know if anything has been modified/damaged.

    By the way, those safeguards were not put in place to protect against viruses but were put in place to detect a failure of the flash memory and to prevent FlashScan from operating if any single bit in the flash memory was altered or damaged.

    Regards
    Paul

    Use the program Start->All Programs->EFILive->V8.1->EFILive Explorer.exe and on the [Splash] tab page, you can load any 128x64 pixel bitmap to use as your splash screen on FlashScan.

    Some sample splash screens are available in \Program Files\EFILive\V8.1\Splash Screens
