yes, I read the firmware advise first. Tried flashing Lede factory first, but each time the router reverted to the linksys oem firmware. I Have flashed this router with many kaloz' builds before with at least perceived good performance...
You're doing something wrong then... Have you tried flashing via serial? Have you checked the bootlog on the first boot following a flash, as that would detail an issue should it be crashing and booting to the alt partition.
It is a security risk to use any OpenWrt based build since there hasn't been a commit in over a year, thereby meaning it's impossible to ensure there's not an exploitable bug in the firmware... This is why those warnings were added to the Wiki page.

Hi, I have a WRT1900ACv1 now running kaloz build from october 2016
If you value stability, Kaloz's last build is the only one you can use. Linux kernel 4.9 and 4.4 have been causing issues.
That's not factually accurate, as stability depends on environment and the stability is with the wifi driver on 4.9 IIRC. I'm using 4.4 with my 1900ac v1 and it works fine.
Bottom line, any firmware running OpenWrt cannot be validated as secure, ergo one's taking a substantial security risk by choosing to flash unsupported firmware.
Can't you also use 4.1 or is it not compatible with LEDE?
