I don't know if this is actually a warranty issue at all.

The things being done with this cable and software are simply selecting items that are available to be selected.
It's not like anything is actually being "modified". The code is already written, and all one is doing is selecting "yes" or "no", is simplest terms.
There isn't any modification of code here.
As Svache has said a couple times, it's not really "coding" that's going on here, just finding certain areas that contain already coded options, and then turning things on or off.
Very cool.

I don't think this has any warranty void concerns.
