It seems like all LineageOS builds are marked as nightly, which makes it impossible to pick out more stable builds from the not-so-stable ones. How do I find a stable build? Is there a plan to mark some builds as stable, or make snapshots as CyanogenMod used to? Should I hold off before moving to LineageOS until those appear?

    The only info I could see is this old post, which doesn't mention stable builds. – Death Mask Salesman Apr 8 '17 at 9:41
  • I've been running CyanogenMod nightlies for years and LineageOS nightlies since a couple of months now. I haven't experienced any problems. Having said that, it's going to take a while before they mark a nightly as stable so if you're prepared to wait that long, go for it. Just know that the experimental builds for migrating from CyanogenMod to LineageOS are going to disappear soon, which means you would have to do a clean flash (something I would recommend doing once anyways for good measure and a fresh start). – famdekk Apr 8 '17 at 11:12
  • @famdekk If you can backup your apps' data, then skip the experimental and directly go for the weekly, I'd say. – Death Mask Salesman Apr 8 '17 at 12:17
  • @DeathMaskSalesman Well yeah, of course. That should be the first thing you do when flashing ROMs. – famdekk Apr 8 '17 at 13:25

    Stable is just nightlies branched at a certain time, and thus might still have problems (even fatal ones), just not as likely. Also, there has been no stable build ever since CM12-ish. – Andy Yan Apr 8 '17 at 15:57
