How do I update without losing my data?
Do i have to wipe anything before flashing?
Thank you in advance
I would think about trying another rom. You should be able to dirty flash an update for the rom that's already on your phone without losing anything.

Nightlys are not really for normal use so you shouldn't have any data that you're worried about losing on there.
Some nightlies can be a daily driver, just have to pick a developer who is well known for their work and not someone who just started learning last night!
Sure, you have to start somewhere, but I think you know what I'm saying.
