As far as i know any tampering with a handset either by methods of software or hardware will void all warranty from the manufacture.

But if they cant tell whats been done no harm no fool !

But i would check to see if by flashing a different rom it will increase your flash counter

Firstly back up your TA before unlocking bootloader....this will help u in restoring warranty when u restore TA backup in future.......then u can unlock your bootloaders...then u can install custom recovery in your fon through which u can flash custom roms....
or u can also install custom roms without unlocking ur bootloaders......

U can chk out this link...http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2327949 or the steps are...
Step 1 - root your phone

Step 2 - install cwm on your phone

Step 3 - choose the Rom you like and Download the Rom

Step 4 - follow instructions and flash Rom via cwm

If everything ok, you got a new Rom on your phone

ALWAYS DO THIS WITH AT LEAST 80% BATTERY!
