Security updates to OpenDelta

OpenDelta received some security-related updates yesterday, which should be rolling out in Omni nightlies as we speak, so tomorrow's nightly update will be its first live test. These updates will allow secure verification of the re-generated (or downloaded) OTA ZIP by TWRP recovery.

For further details, see the README (Security section) and source on GitHub.

OpenDelta patching phase runs forever. I have to kill OpenDelta.

Do I have to disable "secure mode" on latest Philz recovery, too?

+Chainfire  Does this have to be disabled for the flashing of other zips as well?

Noted, thanks.

+Chainfire I am using TWRP and am getting a message that Secure Mode is enabled and hence cannot flash the zips in "FlashAfterUpdate" folder. How do I overcome that? Can you please help clarify? Thanks.

+Balaji Thyagarajan +Chainfire I'm having the exact same question as of today's update!

Johannan Edelman commented on 2013-12-21 at 09:45:

+Balaji Thyagarajan here it says to just ignore it if you use TWRP


I'll give it a try

edit: lost root nonetheless, had to flash it separately.

Balaji Thyagarajan commented on 2013-12-22 at 02:05:

+Chainfire +Johannan Edelman Definitely there is a problem. Nothing in FlashAfterUpdate folder got flashed automatically. I had to flash it manually.

In the update screen, go into the menu (three vertical dots) and disable "secure" mode. Have you not used Android before ?
