Interestingly, the real boot time also seems to decrease by about 12 seconds.

There's only one possibly large downside: the screenshot (>1 MB) is written to the internal memory everytime the DR shuts down, possibly reducing the lifetime of the device.
that's interesting, could you please explain exactly us what you did ?
