Default [Q] Delta Updates

Hi xda and omni community my question is about delta updates OTA.I wnt to ask 2 simple questions.Today i flashed for first time the latest nightly of omni rom and i am curious how OTA works.When the new nighlty will come out i pressume i go to system updates and i install it from there and if that happens its like a "dirty install" so i dont lose any data on my phone or its new from scratch?And last,currenlty i use PhilzTouch for custom recovery this should work with OTA or i need to flash TWRP?

Thanks

You won't lose any data unless something really horrible goes wrong.

Unofficial CWM recoveries might work but are untested and not officially supported. Actually, I think some of the newest features (such as secure verification of ZIPs) require TWRP
Official CWM releases will NOT work as they block extendedcommands scripts from anything but ROM Manager
TWRP is the only tested/officially supported configuration for OpenDelta. Bug reports against any other recovery configuration are considered invalid.
*so much sig updating needed*

A few opinions on kernel development "good practices"

I flashed a few nightlies via OpenDelta now, no problems encountered.
Handy little feature: Put extra zips you want to flash after update into /sdcard/OpenDelta/FlashAfterUpdate/ - they'll be flashed automatically after update (in alphabetical order). No need to flash custom kernels or SuperSu manually

Device: Sony Xperia Z1 (C6903 aka honami)
Recovery: TWRP v2.6.3.0
ROM: SlimKat latest weekly (Android 4.4, CAF stuff included)
Modem: 8974-AAAAANAZQ-10270047-39
Kernel: 3.4.0PIMPED+-gf79222f-dirty

Previous phones: HTC Incredible S (vivo), Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE (i9305)

I noticed that die File in the OpenDelta folder will bloat after applying all that stuff that the Updater do...
So is there a chance that omni will add an option to automatical delete this file after some days, so that it will save space?

Ehm. Where is the Rom.zip if something goes wrong?
What will you flash if you deleted the content of /OpenDelta directory?

GALAXY NOTE N7000 // KITKAT 4.4.2 // OMNI

Hm... That's right.
It redownload the Zip file.
I have no problem with the way OpenDelta does that stuff!
I really love this Rom and OpenDelta.
