Awesome. Looking forward to a fix
I've managed to multiboot my tablet, and I've installed Timur's ROM. I will look into this and hopefully figure it out soon.
I've managed to duplicate the issue, that's a good start
I've found the issue, now to find a fix. Shouldn't be too hard. But it's bed time for me. I'll hopefully get it fixed tomorrow.

I did notice a couple things when I ws playing with your program on a couple devices
1) if I change the text size in settings, the top bar where the audio info is gets too big to see and the lower part gets cut off
2) if I change the temperature form C to F, the top bar does not reflect the change.
Along with the weather on the top, do we need to set a program up or associate a program to get the current temperatures?
The text size issue isn't something I've even thought of and have no idea how I'll fix it. Things are already just about as large as can be. I'll look into it.
As for C to F I forgot about it when implementing the top bar. Easy fix.
Currently it's additional hardware. But I'll add an option to use the weather service. Those are planned but not implemented yet.
I do like the idea of hardware in car for temperatures.. I have an external sensor for my car that is not used.. I have manual AC not electronic.. but I would prefer to not always having to have an internet connection for the temp to display..
have you settled on the GPIO Hardware? I would be interested in adding that to the car too
I will get you a picture.. this was on my HDMI Android Stick then displaying on a 800x480 screen (App Radio)
I am looking at keeping the tablet or switching back to the Android stick.. which will give me a few more options

Hey guys, I'm following this project closely as I've been looking for a front end like this to use in my indash nexus 7 in my car. If anyone is interested, there is a Kit kat rom specifically for car installs on xda. I can post a link if you'd like. It has USB HOST mode charging and power down apps built in. Keep up the great work!!!

This is kinda where I'm at for hardware. I have working prototypes running on my desk. For my needs it's much more than just temperature display, I have full gauge cluster, air suspension controls, power windows, climate control, ECU, alarm, the works.
I'm also hoping to make some money off of the hardware modules for people, thus not wanting to share my (very unready) source code. But thinking today I had an idea that might work well, at least for now.
Currently I'm using an Arduino Due running as an Android accessory. This allows my data transfer and meets all of my requirements. Previously I had used an Arduino Uno. But with the Uno, I had it setup for the Android device to be the master using an OTG cable.
Doing things like -=Jeff=-, and using Timur's USB rom, would require the Uno setup. I have long removed that code, but it's easy to re-implement. This allows me multiple options. I can precompile the source that runs on the Arduino and distribute it within the APK updates. When the app updates, it checks it the Arduino firmware needs updating too, and if so, automatically does it. I would pre-define pins for IO, and allow setup in the application for what that pin does. You would be required to fill in the blanks as far as additional hardware is concerned.
I would also be able to sell fully custom hardware in either mode, using a Due or Uno based board.
I guess the TL:DR version is, I will add in functionality for using a generic Arduino Uno board, and have the application install the software onto the Arduino. Then eventually I want to have all the pins user settable as input/output and what that pin does.
I need to get you a picture off the text bar, but Like I said it is not that big of a deal. I am hoping you get a fix for the issue I was seeing so I can try it again, this app looks really cool to use
-=Jeff=- Try now. I think I fixed the button editor problem.
