How to sign the application if its key is lost.

Postby ranjandeo » Tue Jan 18, 2011 1:37 pm

Hello friends,

I am having a problem with signing of the application.
I had created a key and sign the application.
Now I need to make some changes in the app and need to upload the application in Android market.
I lost my previous key, If any one is having any idea about it how to recover the old key or some other idea that might help in this scenario then please share it here.

Thanks a lot in advance :-)

Hi,

Bad news, as far as I am aware you cant recreate the exact signing key else it defaets the purpose of signing your app.

In my case I reinstalled my OS and forgot to backup my keystore, I used a file recovery program to retrieve the keystore from the harddrive.

Thanks a lot for your response. :-)
I too was thinking like that.
I thought if it would be possible then I will get some clue from the community.
