As you can see from earlier posts - finding the best method for updating is still very much a work in progress.  One thing is for sure though - the hardware will be open and the source open source, so anybody will be able to write and build their own firmware and update the device.

"Firmware signature check" is a bit hard to do with any authority if the hardware in itself is open enough for people to write their own firmware, but I was thinking https certificate check for the automatic updates - in fact playing with that already (https://download.reclaim-your-privacy.com).
