iOS PhoneGap – Splash screen control « Shazron's PhoneGap Blog
Unfortunately a splash screen is still needed to hide the white flash that is visible just before the UIWebView loads its content. Previously before PhoneGap 1.0, you had no control over this – sometimes your content just takes an extra time to load and you want to control the duration of the splash screen.
There are two steps to enable this, firstly – in PhoneGap.plist, change the value for “AutoHideSplashScreen” to false (by default it is true for legacy code). This will not hide the splash screen, and it will remain on screen indefinitely.
