KangaKat and Franco kernel. Worry free since this machine came out. Avoid CM, IMHO.

Hay im running Dirty Unicorn(4.4.2) and the latest elementalX kernal and it does charge my nexus 7 with the OTG cable and sends power to my DAC, but the sound is still playing through the speakers of my Nexus.

the DAC im using is the Behringer UCA-222 it works fine with CM10.2, but no OTG charging.

Could someone please help me out?

There's a reason why these threads are frowned upon, and this is a prime example. To the OP, there are no real roms that are/are not noob friendly. Some just have extra optimizations...it's up to you to utilize them all. As starters, get comfortable with the stock rom, then try the others. Then you can truly determine which rom is best for you AND for your device (since each device may respond differently).
