Does hacking/jailbreaking the infotainment void my car warranty?
I can’t believe that the base model doesn’t have a customizable welcomeing screen.
Also feel free to post your suggestion/insight here about hacking the infotainment.

I assume modding the infotainment system counts as improper adjustments or repairs.

This is from Toyota:
This warranty does not cover damage or failures resulting directly or
indirectly from any of the following:
• Fire, accident or theft
• Abuse or negligence
• Misuse – for example, racing & competitive events, off-roading or
overloading
Improper adjustments or repairs
• Modification, alteration or tampering, disconnection, including
installation of non-Toyota Accessories
• Repairs and adjustments caused by improper maintenance, lack of
required maintenance and/or the use of fluids, fuel, oil or lubricants
other than those recommended in your Owner’s Manual
• Installation of non-Toyota Parts

General rule of thumb is that as long as you can undo it and leave no evidence then its a go. However these days with how these systems are built often logs are kept of what was going on, those logs might only be viewable by service centers so its a risky game.

I've never heard of Toyota's infotainment systems being hacked. What except customizable welcoming screen can you modify with a jailbreak? I might consider hacking it too.
