How would we use the patch command to correctly apply patches?

How would one go about this? How can I verify that, after patches are applied that they won’t break my install? Is there a way the daemon for patchmanager can apply ~1 minute out from login so if there are issues with a patch, it will still allow you to log in to unapply or change settings in the Patchmanager app (the newest build from git).

just reboot the phone and stop patchmanager from applying the path, then uninstall it
