ACR – Auto Call Recorder
Once installed go to your programs folder and you will see a new Icon for Auto Call Recorder. Click on the Icon and the options for Auto Call Recorder will be displayed. Once you have chosen your options click the Enable Recording button on the File Tab and close the Options Program. That’s it you are now automatically recording any calls your device has.
There are two tabs of options to choose from. Most of these you will not need to use at all but where included to provide a better experience for some users who have different requirements such as limited memory, no use to record all calls and such.
Folder to save calls in
From the top of the file tab, first we have a textbox showing where the files will be saved. On the right of this textbox is a button. This button when pressed will open a window so that you may change where ACR saves the files.
Ask to save Call
This checkbox when checked will make ACR prompt you with a choice to save the call once the call has finished. Note that even if you choose no you will still have the option to retrieve the last call up until you receive another call. The file Lastcall.wav is only overwritten when you receive another call.
Record Incoming Calls/Record Outgoing Calls
These checkboxes is pretty self explanatory, if you want ACR to record your incoming calls then check this box, if you don’t then uncheck this box. The same goes for Record Outgoing Calls.
Write to Debug File
Only use this option if you are having problems. At the moment the debug is very limited. When you have this option check ACR will write debug messages to a file ‘debug.txt’ in the installation folder.
The recording tab contains the setting for the file to be recorded. First is the Wav format. This is either PCM or GSM6.10 PCM is a ‘raw’ wav format that will use about 1MB per minute. I have included this format for devices that do not support GSM6.10. The other format GSM6.10 is a ‘compressed’ Wav format and consumes approximately 30kB per minute. Obviously this is the preferred choice.
Bits per channel are either 8 or 16 bits. 16 bits is the preferred choice but I have also included 8 bits for slower devices.
Samples per Second are the number of samples taken each second. This is a matter of preference/device capability. The choices are 8000, 11025, 16000, 22050, 32000, 44100, 48000, 96000 and 192000Hz. If you have a slow device then you are better starting from the bottom and working your way up by testing to see which the best is for you. If you have a newer device then it is more a choice of how much space you want to use as the higher the number the more space the file will use. Also your device may not support the higher frequencies so I recommend starting with something like 48000Hz. If you set the frequency to high you will get gaps in your recordings.
This program will work on a number of devices at different degrees of success. Below is a few lists of devices and there reported success. If your device is not listed then try it anyway and don’t forget to report back you amount of success. If your device don’t match up to whats reported then please do

TIPS AND FIXES
This is a condensed form of the previous thread
and this thread. I will cover all the fixes found by the great folk at XDA.
Enable MicAGC. Its in Settings/System. Its not required by all devices though.
“I only hear my voice, the other party is very soft?” This is because you device is not setup to record both the incoming and outgoing voices. This can also be because your device is only ‘half-duplex’. To solve this try the suggestions in the Devices Post.
“ACR only records the first minute of the call?” This is because you have ‘fast sleep’ enabled on your device. Try something like Advanced Configuration Tool
to disable fast sleep.
“I can’t see if it’s working?” ACR has no interface when it’s running. It was designed like this to keep memory usage to a minimum. If you are having troubles with this then I suggest you use the ‘Ask to save call’ option so you know it’s worked after the call. You can also see it running in a task manager program when you choose to show ‘view processes’.

A big thanks to Rozenthal for letting me steal his legal stuff from FingerKeyboard
A big thanks to Biker1 for helping all the lost people in this thread. You should get more credit than me.
Also thanks to [germany]merlot and deep_purple for testing.
