Thanks for sharing that. I have to say, as a firmware professional that I'm very impressed with the tools available today for this sort of thing. I started with BASIC in the 1960's when I was just a kid and my uncle let me play on the local college's PDP-8. My times have changed!
You should see the paid tools then! They are even better, but my budget don't allow for these yet..
Along with some friends, we completed a quick sideproject. We did a nag-screen delete, with a permanent box mounted behind the OBD2 port. This box sends CAN messages onto the AV-CAN on every startup, so you don't have to see the nag-screen. Here it is in action:

Maybe it would be worthwile to create a plug'n'play solution for the OBD2 port? Something you just set and forget there?
