What ROM are you running on your DNA (and why)?

    I'm running NOS which is a Sense 5 based ROM. It gets insane battery and is very minimal in nature. But, it doesn't have as many tweaks as some other ROMs that I used to run on my GNex. I've always been biased towards AOKP and they have an awesome ROM Control center where you can customize pretty much anything. It doesn't appear that NOS has that. NOS was flashed on the device when I bought it and I'm happy with it, but I'm wondering what else is out there. And since I'm not a flash-aholic, I was hoping the AF community can discuss what ROM you're running on your DNA and why you chose that one to help me choose another one.

    So fire away!

    I've ran the following:

    Every version of VenomROM
    JoelZ's Sense 5 port (BAMF v2.0)
    NOS M7 Sense 5
    CM 10.1 (4.2.2)
    CarbonROM (4.2.2)

    I've not had a "bad" experience with any of them. My faves have been Viper, NOS M7, CM 10.1 and CarbonROM. As far as customization options that you were used to on the GNex, CarbonROM is going to be the closest to that experience. I'm running it currently and have had zero issues.

    I really wish that this thread would get a bit more active. I recently rooted my DNA. I have yet to fully dive into it with throwing Rom's on it because honestly I don't know where to start. I've thrown Rom's on phones in the past but only after being able to read a bunch about them from several sources and see screen shots. I'm not horribly picky but I will say that I run Nova Launcher prime on my phone because I don't like how restrictive Sense is. I love Sense but don't like to be so confined.

    Anyways, there is a good amount of talk out there about the Venom Rom and while I'd like to try it....I'm not sold. Especially with that sidebar. Some real serious help here would be so amazing. If not then I'll just jump on over to the MAXX threads and find a Rom to play with on that phone I guess.

    I agree I'm shocked that the DNA apparently never FULLY took off and got as big as I would have expected it. To this day the phone is better than a vast majority of the other POWERHOUSE phones or at least about equal..
