Grub Customizer 2.0 released

You can use it to select the default entry, change the visibility of the menu, timeout, kernel parameters, disable recovery entries, change screen resolution, (GFX_MODE), Menu colors (grub2 only), background image (grub2 only).


If you diden`t hear before about Grub Customizer it is”a graphical interface to configure the grub2/burg settings with focus on the individual list order – without losing the dynamical behavior of grub. Since version 1.5 it’s possible to do grub2/burg recovery & configuration using a live cd (and Grub Customizer, which has to be installed as usual at the live system before using it). All the required partitions will be automatically mounted when choosing the root partition and some sub partitions on the “partition chooser” “.
