I'm sure ChromaPure uses the tables/memories that X-Rite saved in your C5 (assuming you selected/CP is using the LCD table/memory)
Do not believe that is the case. When selecting the C5 in ChromaPure only Standard and CRT are listed whereas in CalMan Enhanced C5 is shown for a modified C5. But Tom can chime in on this.
Moreover, based on tests conducted by Tom Huffman, it is now my belief that the spectral content of CCFL vs LED is not so different as to materially affect grayscale calibration and especially the resulting PQ after calibration.

Myth No 5.
This issue is still controversial and purveyors of calibration software and the modified C5 like Spectracal and now Sencore could welll see a commercial advantage here.
Bill Hergonson of CoastCalibration calibrated my LG in October using a C5 just re-certified and modified for the LED table by Sencore. Bill compared the calibration reports of the modified and previous (virgin) C5 and and concluded that the change would not show any discernable difference in PQ after calibration.
That said Tom Huffman may well decide to add the modified C5 in the next iteration of ChromaPure if that yields a commercial advantage.
I for now am very happy with ChromaPure and the standard C5 and have no intention of making a change.
Perhaps when my C5 needs to be re-certified I would elect to have the meter modified.
