• Phone is rooted and overclocked running a custom firmware, pc is overclocked, just about everything we pass to people is soon after cracked/hacked open and modified to barely be recognised. I don't see why this shouldn't be extended to car software or why anyone would expect any different.

    If the algorithm says only accelerate 60% and pass cyclists with 1.5m space it's only a matter of time before someone changes it to 100% and 0.5m. It's a rather endless list of ways you could modify them to drive differently.

    If you root your phone and brick it then you just have a bricked phone. If you overlock your pc and your system overheads.. then you just have an overheated system and perhaps a voided warranty. If your crack, hack or open a product to do mods you, at worst, ruin the product-- perhaps, at worst, break a few laws (e.g. radio emission etc.)-- and nullify its warranty.. If you modify the certified software of a self-driving car you probably well have also nullified your insurrance coverage.
