David, Since I don't like to live dangerously with my router..
When you say "Don't save any OpenWrt setting, when upgrading to LEDE, unless you like to live dangerously!."
Are you basically saying to do a a reset before the updated?
I'm currently running 4.4.7: OpenWrt Designated Driver r49377 / LuCI Master (git-16.151.26687-f4af114). Can I restore from backup after the upgrade or do I have to reset my config from scratch?
I've had great luck with you builds so far.. just want to keep the trend going
You can flash LEDE through the GUI, but UN-Check the save configurations box before you flash.
Once LEDE is loaded, you will need to start re-building the configurations from scratch as there are no saved settings from OpenWrt.
Just be sure to backup your OpenWrt configurations before flashing, so if you ever want to go back, it will be easy to recover all of your settings.
P.S. I tried to save configurations from OpenWrt, but the LEDE configurations were screwed up, and I had to flash again without all of the OpenWrt settings.
