How to merge existing app (.apk) with my SDK signature?

Postby bbooze » Fri Feb 25, 2011 3:49 am

Hi. I have as android app (.apk file) that a developer made for me. In order to upload it to the Marketplace it needs to have an SDK signature attached to it. I have made the ".keystore" file, but I'm confused on how to merge it with my existing app. The directions here...

http://developer.android.com/guide/publ ... portWizard

... are kind of vague. Using Eclipse, I can't drag the apk file into the Package Explorer as the guide seems to suggest. Does anyone know if there is an easy way to do this? Or maybe there is something fundamental I am simply not seeing.

Thx.

The APK is already signed, it is signed before it is exported as an APK.

If you want to sign an APK yourself with your keystore, you will have to ask the original developer for the source code project.
