Hello, the title shows you most things but I probably ought to expand. I've had my z1 for a bit and have been using Android for a long time, I have never rooted or installed cyanogenmod but say the oppo phone and finally I've decided i want in. Can someone find me a suitable one with a very noob friendly tone

Thanks alot
Callum

P. S. Any kernel numbers etc. you may need I can add if asked but to be honest I don't know what you need

It doesn't seem very stable. Not something I want to risk n my daily driver or am I paranoid?

No, this rom is in development that's wahy it seems not really stable.
The best you can do it's to go to both of Z1 Android Development and Z1 Original Android Development, read and choose one of these roms.

I cannot tell you if this rom is best than the other, because you must read, and read before to select and try a rom
Don't forget you need to read with attention my second link which is really important for rooting your device etc... and don't ne afraid, it's easy

Also, what's the difference between the rooting and cyanogenmod. I have seen rooting before but never really seemed good, I've seen cyanogenmod before but now I'm confused between the two

You need to be root if you want to flash a custom rom like cyanogen rom.
If you, want to know more about cyanogen go here => http://www.cyanogenmod.org
