First of all, sorry about my noobness =\

I downloaded the Amestris Deodexer and deodexed a stock and rooted rom. I ran the deodexer immediately after a factory reset/wipe through the recovery, so I think is is safe to say that nothing has been tampered with. The deodexer generated a flashable .zip file, which is supposed to turn my stock odexed rom into a deodexed rom after being flashed.

My question is does the generated flashable .zip file need to be signed before it is flashed. If so, can someone kindly point me towards a thread where I can learn how to sign an app/zip file. Also, what exactly is it that is signed when it ... umm signed? All individual apps? The zip file? [I feel meganoobish now =\]

My intention is to deodex my stock rom, remove bloatware with the ROM_cleaner script. Then reodex the 'deodexed and unbloated' rom using the Amestris Odexer, because as per my limiter knowledge, odex roms are supposed to be faster then deodexed ones.

Thanks in advance.
