HTC DROID DNA gets Sense 5.0 ROM thanks to HTC One
Thanks to the HTC One (M7), Verizon’s HTC Droid DNA has a working Sense 5.0 ROM. This might be a breath of fresh air for Droid DNA owners as development for the DNA has been stagnant for a while. If you’re looking to give Sense 5.0 a try, this is definitely worth it. While the developer calls this an alpha build, nearly everything is working. At this time, HTC Zoe does not work nor do MMS messages. Seeing as you can use Gmail to send pictures and HTC Zoe is a brand new feature, this is ROM is daily driver material.

If you’re S-On, you’ll want to flash the included kernel (boot.img) from fastboot prior to flashing both zips. If you’re S-Off, you can flash these zips as normal.
Please note, the boot animation will say HTC One and stay on that screen during the first boot for a good while. Let it finish. And, be sure to head on over to the official XDA thread at the source link for help and support.
