New Signing Keys

Hey guys

 

Thank you for your support the last times I had questions.

 

I developed lots of PlayBook Apps with WebWorks.

Today I wanted to get one of them running on my DevAlpha device. 

I had the same problem as this guy here:

 

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Testing-and-Deployment/Ripple-deploy-to-BB10-dev-alpha-failur...

 

Here are my Terminal outputs:

Building:

  1. [INFO] Populating application source
  2. [INFO] Parsing config.xml
  3. [WARN] Build ID set in config.xml [version], but no signing password was provided [-g]. Bar will be unsigned
  4. [INFO] Generating output files
  5. [WARN] Failed to find debug token
  6. [INFO] Info: Package created: /..../simulatorArchiv 2.bar
  7. [WARN] Failed to find debug token
  8. [INFO] Info: Package created: /..../device/Archiv 2.bar
  9. [INFO] BAR packaging complete

Installing:

  1. Info: Sending request: Install and Launch
  2. Info: Action: Install and Launch
  3. Info: File size: 311765
  4. Info: Installing undefined.testDev_undefined__c21f6150...
  5. Info: Processing 311765 bytes
  6. actual_dname::
  7. actual_id::
  8. actual_version::
  9. result::failure 881 application author does not match debug token author

 

I ordered new signing keys because mine were only for PlayBook and I needed some for BB10.

Then I started GraphicalAid, set up the latest BB10 WebWorks SDK as "BlackBerry WebWorks SDK Location" and clicked on "Run Configuration Wizard".

On the last step I was able to click on "Register New Keys".

 

Here comes the problem.

Fortunately the program told me this:

 

"(!) Warning: this action will unregister this computer, making it unable to sign applications.  To continue signing applications and creating debug tokens, you will need to register again at: http://www.blackberry.com/go/codesigning  After reregistering, new versions of your apps will appear as new applications, not upgrades, and will not have access to shared data from previous versions.  Are you sure you wish to delete your current keys?"

 

Now, I want to be able to get BB10 apps working but I also want to be able to release future updates of my PlayBook apps. If the updates get recognized as new apps I can't use them as updates.

 

So I haven't deleted my keys obviously but now I can't test stuff on my DevAlpha using my DebugToken.

 

I thought it could be be because I used BlackBerry Tablet OS Graphical Aid but I'm not too sure about that.

 

Any suggestion guys?

Please help me out.

Re: New Signing Keys

You don't need new keys.  The same keys are used for both BlackBerry Tablet OS and BlackBerry 10.

 

The "result::failure 881 application author does not match debug token author" error means the application you are trying to install is configured to use a different author than the debug token on your device.

 

Make sure you have installed the correct debug token and are also referencing the same debug token when building the application.

Re: New Signing Keys

Thanks Mark
I have the same author in my xml as in my debug token.
What do you mean by "referencing the same debug token when building the application"? How do I do that?

Re: New Signing Keys

The debug token needs to be in the WebWorks SDK installation directory, and named debugtoken.bar.
