Based on latest LOLLIPOP with MICRO GAPS and OPEN GAPS 1024 x 600 and 800 x 480 from @dsa8310.
Sharing with you my custom modified rom with LP image.

MicroG version: 1024 x 600 and 800 x 480
- added screen saver with speed, clock and apps shortcut ported from well known developer @Malaysk (null null still present)
(if someone need: screen saver in the attachement - replace with root explorer: system - app - mtcscreenclock
MTCScreenClock (round)
- 1024 x 600 resolutions has different radio and bluetooth apk

- mtc status bar

DISABLING THE SCREEN SAVER OR CHANGING TIME:
Edit on external SD/ GPS-Card : Mtc.Manager/settings.ini
# the inclusion of an alternative screen saver, when you specify false will work full-time mechanism:
screenClock=false or true to activate
# Time off the screen if you do not set out full-time settings will be used in sec:
screenTimeout=300
# The name of the screensaver program package
screenPackage=com.microntek.screenclock
# Name Activiti screensaver
screenClass=MainActivity
# If the name of the package and Activiti is not specified, it will use a standard screensaver


MTC MANAGER CAPABILITIES:
capabilities
All configuration files must be on the external map in the mtc-manager directory.
1. The module carries the functionality of xposed-mcu , which does not allow the radio to go to sleep during the scrolling of the starter.

- when receiving a signal to turn off the module delays for 5 seconds, if at that moment the power reappears, nothing happens, in the absence of power, the radio recovers into sleep.

Due to the features of the implementation of the inclusion in our MCU, the screen goes out for the time of voltage failure.
This functionality can be disabled in settings.ini:
Settings.ini
Mcu_power = false
2. The module has a white list of applications that does not allow the system to close necessary services and applications when going to sleep and when pressing the "Acceleration" button in the blind. Thus, the module allows to refuse from using mtc-wakeup-service .
Filename with exceptions whitelist.ini
The file name of the white list application packages must be listed.
#
example
3. Accelerated start of user services. The services are started when the system kernel is loaded.
The list of services should be on the external map in the mtc-manager directory, the file name start_services.ini
each line should contain the service name in the format package name / full service name,
#
example
4. An alternative screensaver with a list of exceptions, running in any (even a non-standard application). The standard screen saver mechanism is activated.
It may not work on all firmware.
Settings in the settings.ini file.
Settings.ini
# Inclusion of an alternative screensaver, if false, the standard mechanism will work:
screenClock = true
# screen off time, if not specified, the value from the
default settings will be used: screenTimeout = 60
# screen saver program name
screenPackage = com.microntek.screenclock
# screen saver activation name
ScreenClass = MainActivity
# if the package name and activations are not specified, then the standard screensaver will be used
The exception list is located in the ss_exceptions.ini file - the package names must be listed, for example:
Ss_exceptions.ini
com.microntek.music
ru.yandex.yandexmaps
Also the screensaver will not start when talking on the phone, the rear view camera, navigation and turning off the radio.
If instead of a beautiful clock MTCSreenClock.apk a screensaver with a standard digital clock on a black background is called, you need to make sure that the MTCScreenClock application is installed.
If the application is installed, you can try setting screenPackage and screenClass parameters in settings.ini
5. Also in the module there is a "backup" for correct sound adjustment in MTC-Volume and MTC-Service .
#
The adjustment of sound in firmware on Android 4.4.4
6. Re-designation of OBD-device bluetooth.
Device names must be listed in the settings.ini file in obd_device parameter, separated by commas, in the form in which they are visible in the standard hands-free application. You can specify not names, but parts of names, for example:
Settings.ini
Obd_device = OBD, DUAL-SPP
7. Set the list of programs that are switched by the MODE button,
In settings.ini, set
Settings.ini
ModeSwitch = true
Programs are switched sequentially one after the other.
For correct sound switching, the applications used must be managed (play / pause) programmatically via intents. If the player does not support the start and stop playback of external intents, then you have to manually switch the sound.
When you click on the MODE button, the active application is searched for in the running list. Next, the application is sent a command (configurable in mode.ini) to close or pause the audio stream. After that, the default activation for the next application is launched and the application is sent a command to start playback (also configured in mode.ini)
#
Mode.ini
8. Disable the launch of the last running program.
Settings.ini
Clear_last_app = true
9. GPS time synchronization.
Settings.ini
Sync_gps_time = true
10. Turn on w-fi at startup.
Settings.ini
Wifi.on = true

Hello,
Please help me a little, it was a more than one year since I updated my fw.
How do I update to this firmware, I forgot the procedure?
Is it clean install, all apps/data are going to be wiped and must be installed again?
Is there a way to backup current firmware/apps, like twrp image or something (in case something goes wrong)?
Thank you

Backup with titanium backup all your apps you want.
wipe data/factory reset from recovery, then flash the image with clear all
With titanium backup restore your apps back, thats it.

I added screen saver in latest version. But still don't know why you have problems with resolution. I can upload stock apps and you can try if there is also problem or not...

What are the performance benefits from the dsa8310 rom on a 1gb ram headunit?
I'm currently running dsa8310 latest 5.1.1. on my 1gb headunit. What sort of advantages will I see if I flash to your rom?

Hard to say without knowing the exact version of his ROM youre running currently, but generally its a good idea to update the software as it is on any computer/smartphone/tablet. You shouldnt have to wipe data if youre already using it.

Read the thread to see the improvements that have been made recently - he lists them all.
