Yes indeed.

However a couple of tips....

1. User triangle away to reset the custom binary counter. If this reports more than 0, then warranty is void. It shows a red exclamation mark on the boot animation, so ensure this app clears that away.

2. If it still boots but you have to return it for warranty, flash a stock ROM back first.

3. If it doesn't boot, as long as you do 1., you're ok.

Being an (ex) AOSP developer, all I can say is yes, AOKP and CM are based on AOSP but the features that both teams add still take the ROM far away from the Pure android experience. They just look more "Vanilla".

They miss all touchwiz features but add some of their own. If I really wanted AOSP on my S3 (If I didn't have the skills to compile my own ROM) I would use CM or AOKP.
