So, please, first fix the current bugs, try to optimize algorithms for some more speed, but don't bring us new bells and whistles...
Personally, I say yuck. I want to watch the device boot so I know it is working.

But, it would be easy to handle at code level. They just need to use the same name for the page image all the time.

As to the cover image bug, you are wrong. The Kobo developers have fixed it each time. They have just found another way to break the cover display. I can't wait to try 2.4.0 to see what clever way they broke it this time.
