There seem to be quite a few security fixes too (including one where you cannot activate USB Debugging unless you're the primary user... nice... )

Best one I think is a fix due for a vulnerability (exploit !!!) of the Exynos discovered in those very XDA forums by alephzain on the S3.

Check this out : https://android.googlesource.com/platform/cts/+/6537494

...at least they give credits to whom found the hole

Looking at the changelog, and specifically the comits to vold, it looks like nothing has changed regarding mounting external storage writable, all the crappy workarounds just to get read/write on a USB HDD is what's bugging me most.

I have 1.25 available as well. It should be 1.6.
Strange......

It was mentioned on a changelog somewhere that Google reserved an extra 380 some MB for the GPU, something along the lines of it being able to fragment userspace RAM before when the GPU needed extra memory.

Android 4.2.2 seems more buttery to me. Memory usage is also lower, even without a full wipe.
