Help with m8 and using sf24d flash

Hi, I just bought the sf24d flash for my m8.  I use a b+w UV/IR filter on my 35 Summarit-m, I have 2.05 firmware (ie prior to 4000 speed shutter change) and set the lens detect on with uv/ir filter option on.

I shoot mostly in A mode on the m8, with the flash set to "A mode" should the aperture be displayed on the flash when I change the lens aperture?  It does seem to, I'm i using the flash correctly?   The manuals are not very clear.

Should I be setting the flash to match  the aperture manually, what about the TTL Setting?

Please provide some insight. Thanks..
