Normally the disclaimer said "Warranty is void if you unlock your device", but it's only in case of the problem is caused by the fact of unlocking/rooting the device. In fact they just cover their back ^^.
Your OS cannot break physically your screen (Fortunately ^^). Some people got their devices replaced on custom ROMed devices by Asus. If you want to RMA your device, if your device still running a bit, and to be sure, factory reset and relock your bootloader before sending it.
