I have a few questions - I just got a Flashcal for my new re-gear and 37" tires. I see that I can upgrade my Flashcal to a Flashpaq for a discount through the software. Do I still need to do a PCM swap for this? The description does not state that I do.
Yes, you will need to send your PCM off to have it unlocked or swap yours.

Also, do I need to leave the bypass module plugged in all the time for my tunes / adjustments for gears / tires / etc. to stay active?
It’s not necessary, however since it’s a pain to contort your body to get under the dash I’ve found it easiest to leave it in. You only need to worry about removing it if you have to bring it into the dealer for service.

It does not have to be plugged in all the time, but since it's a pain I just leave the by pass. The PCM swap is only for using the performance tunes. If you just want to do tire size, gears and a what not you don't have to do that.

ok so im reading this thread WAY TO LATE today. I just sent my jeep to the dealership bc my reverse lights no longer work... after the jeep had been at the dealership over 2 hours **after my appointment time** they called me saying they could not get into my computer because of the superchip installed.. I knew I needed to return everything to factory settings which I did.. I did NOT know you had to remove the module under the dash.... should I go up to the dealership and remove the module?> Call them what?>> Im soooo mad

If you have something installed bypassing the gateway their tools won’t talk to it. You need to remove the adapter. I leave my settings alone with my tazer. If they see you are running bigger tires without the tire size set right they claim to be able to void warranty as the mileage is incorrect.

Yeah I didn’t change the tire size setting. I just unplugged the superchip module. But now the damn thing is actually shifting in the correct gears where before I was never leaving 4th gear until I was going over 70... so whatever they did it changed something. The issue they think is the gear sensor that tells the computer what gear I’m in. Which is crazy but I guess makes sense. I have a 6 speed manual so I was thinking I was going to have to regear and I guess now I don’t. Lol. It’s not reading that I’m putting the Jeep in reverse. Lol

I believe I said that earlier in this post that it needed to be returned to stock and unplugged . My dealer tried to get in mine and was locked out ,without me taking it all out.

I'm going to buy a speedo calibrator due to lifting and installing taller tires and re-gearing my JL 2 door Sport S. Superchips says that they are going to offer the programmer soon that can be uploaded online to the Flashcal. Is Superchips flashcal the way to go or is there a better option?

I have never brought my jeep back to stock or removed the unit and had warranty work done for 2 years

Noob question here, I didn’t see this explained in the thread. When you are saying “unmarry”, is there an unmarry option within the flashcal? Or are you simply just saying that you’re “unplugging” the flashcal?

By removing the tunes/changes or returning the jeep back to stock, you unmarry the unit. It will no longer be locked and can be used by another jeep. If you don’t do this, the super cal unit itself remains locked to the vin number of the jeep it was used.
