unfortunately I cannot reproduce your problem using my CFA 635
(XES635BKTMFKU) and your config (I had to use different values for
brightness and contrast as well).

In fact I do see the Hello screen until a client connects. It also works
with and without reboot=yes.

You may actually face two problems: First the display is not cleared
during initialization. Second you do not see the Hello message.

The display is cleared on startup using a hardware command. I am not
aware of any firmware version that does not support this command. But
you may try the attached patch. It initializes one buffer differently so
whole screen is redrawn upon startup.

As you do see the server screen you should see the Hello message as that
uses standard drawing functions. I will have a close look at this, but
as I wrote above, it does work here...
