I'm all for upgrades and new software. For the most part, as with any product nothing bad will ever happen. In the event that something bad does happen, and if it is determined that the product was the cause, then there could be legal consequences. This could be with any product, not just a software modification. If a simple aftermarket ASA adapter were to crack and expell HP air which causes injury, then the manufacturer of that product could be held responsible if sued. That is why manufacturers have insurance. That is also why there are quality control measures in place to ensure a safe product. Due dilligence goes a long way to prove that a defective product was a fluke not an irresponsible act.
AGDlover is correct in making an alert. People may view it as naysaying, but if it alerts a manufacturer of a product to a potential future threat and saves a lawsuit, then I'll bet that builder will breath a sigh of relief. People always jump on the messanger bearing news that no one wants to hear.
I for one will welcome any new software and aftermarket parts. I as a consumer assume that they are built with quality and properly tested. In the end, it is up to the builder of that product to properly secure his assets to prevent loss through a lawsuit.
Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.
