Here is a thread dedicated to all PA Users with a lot of questions on their mind

Through this thread (and of course searching), we can actually avoid posting redundant questions at the dev thread..
also, if we can avoid (or atleast lessen) redundant questions at the dev thread, we can easily scan through updates too!

I hope this could help a lot of users, cheers!

Call recorder can be added using 3rd party apps.
Try searching for it on PlayStore

RAM Usage: There's a Memory Leak issue on all AOSP based JB ROMs for S3 International.
The effect has reduced since previous releases, but still present. Give it a try & see if you can live with it.
Most can.

For any AOSP based ROMs, no.
Samsung decided to remove the USB Mount feature in S3... for some goddamn reason.

For ICS there was the UMS Mount App, but for JB there've been mixed results.

Feel free to try it out!

No. Not unless you Wipe Data manually
(Its an option in CWM recovery.)

As long as you don't wipe, you won't lose any apps, EXCEPT the gapps.
Every time you flash a ROM, you need to flash a gapps package immediately after the ROM flash, or you won't have the PlayStore, Gmail, Now etc... the google stuffs.
