    Display Text during the Boot Up stage of symbian device

    Hi guys
    I need to display a text during the booting stage of any symbian 9.1 device
    Booting stage: This stage is seen when the device is powered on (Power On)

    Can anyone help me in this ?

    Thanks in advance

    I also want to know this.
    maybe the lcd driver as a kernel extension, whcih is the last extension to be started after the kernel started.
    So if you want to use the lcd driver, this is maybe impossible because of the upper reason.

    luckily, you can develop your own lcd driver based on arm cpu, not depend on symbian before the symbian started, then it will work, I think

    would the simples thing anyway be to make it with normal public API's?

    For example you could use the Startup Management List API to sutostart your application. Then your applications could draw the text to the screen. You could maybe use fullscreen normal application for this, or maybe you could just construct your own window that takes only some parts of the screen and displays your message in there.

    but at that time, the kernel is not completely booted.

    ahaa, I thought you meant boot-up time, like during the normal boot-up, basically the start-up management list applications are executed right after the system is initialized fully, anyway I don't see too much of point showing anything before that.
