I searched for a few hours and can't find much on this...

I'd like my uno32 program to run immediately on power up (well up to 10ms delay would be ok). What is the simplest way to bypass the boot loader?

I found the boot loader code on github. Do I have to modify it and reprogram my board? Ideally I could use a jumper on some pin to enable/disable the bootloader.

Yes, I believe you will have to modify the bootloader and re-program the board. I don't know that there is a way to bypass it right now.

ok. Looks like I will need MPLAB to build the bootloader?

Correct. The bootloaders are all set up with MPLAB 8 projects - so that's what you'll want to download.
