my arch hang when i preview plymouth theme

hi guys,

I installed Arch-Rolling 64-bit edition few days back with deepin de
now i installed plymouth with the command:

 yay -S plymouth 

and I installed plymouth after that i did edit the

/etc/mkinitcpio.conf

as per the guid from Plymouth Arch Wikki and my mkinitcpio.conf file:

##   This setup loads an lvm2 volume group on a usb device.
#    HOOKS=(base udev block lvm2 filesystems)
#
##   NOTE: If you have /usr on a separate partition, you MUST include the
#    usr, fsck and shutdown hooks.
HOOKS=(base udev plymouth autodetect modconf block filesystems keyboard fsck)

then i rebuilt itird using

 mkinitcpio -p linux 

command output is as follows

 $ sudo mkinitcpio -p linux
[sudo] password for hariram:

i disabled the lightdm using system and enabled the lightdm-plymouth using systemd

plymouth display the splash screen on boot and shutdown but when i try to preview the splash screen preview in tty2 (ctl+alt+f2) using command as root user:

$ plymouthd
$ plymouth --show-splash 

i can preview the splash screen but i can neither come out of the splash screen using ctl + alt + f2 nor using ctl + alt +f1 to go back to my desktop only thing i can do is force shut down my laptop by holding power button for more than 10 sec

my laptop is Asus x505za with AMD ryzen 5 2500U with Vega 8 graphic card

can any one help me please thank you in advance
