Is it a B or B+ model? My B+ is not stable even with Raspbian. I
assume it's a hardware problem. You mentioned B+ in the mail thread.
I've had much better luck with my B model. The B+ gets pretty hot. My
B+ continuously shows the lightning symbol even though I checked
current draw and it is well below 1 amp on a 3 amp power supply and
voltage stays above 5.1V. The official documentation says that the
lightning symbol should only come on at 4.63v +/- 5%.

Get another one and try it if you can.
