Re: BlackBerry Signing Tool for Tablet OS Now Live!

@Cesar

I belive you will need to reapply to rim for a new signing key specifically for the playbook. I think they are different to the smartphone keys.

Re: BlackBerry Signing Tool for Tablet OS Now Live!

@ProfHawking You are right.

 In the url  https://www.blackberry.com/SignedKeys/   we can choose Tablet or Smartphone.

 

(I must see before post ...  :smileyfrustrated:)

 

 Thanks!!

Re: BlackBerry Signing Tool for Tablet OS Now Live!

Just a note to everyone... on 0.9.4 there is a slight change in the syntax. The signing tools do not accept the backslash in step 3. Instead you should use a dash

 

NOT WORKING:   bbwp "c:\workingdir\HelloWorld.zip" /gcsk #CSKPASSWORD# /gp12 #P12PASSWORD# /buildId #BUILDNO# /o "c:\workingdir"

 

 

WORKING:    bbwp "c:\workingdir\HelloWorld.zip" -gcsk #CSKPASSWORD# -gp12 #P12PASSWORD# -buildId #BUILDNO# -o "c:\workingdir"

Re: BlackBerry Signing Tool for Tablet OS Now Live!

Yes, we changed all the bbwp command line options from a '/' to a '-'.  The team felt that was a more generic and a better solution for command line options regardless of which development platform you're using (ie Windows or MacOS).  

 

Sincerely,

Re: ProfHawking instructions - Add'l notes

Kudos to ProfHawking for providing step-by-step instructions.  Here are some add'l notes and observations.

 

 

  • I used a Mac to do the signing. I did not find the barsigner.csk, and did not look for the barsigner.db, but it did not seem to matter.
  • I initially renamed the inconveniently named .csj file into something shorter, but that prevents bbwp from finding it.  I reverted to the original filename as determined by RIM.
  • It appears that the -buildId parameter is appended to the "version" attribute of the <widget> in config.xml.  I first tried "0.9" as version number, but the signing step failed, complaining of an invalid "Package-Version".  I changed it to "090" instead and that was accepted.

Re: BlackBerry Signing Tool for Tablet OS Now Live!

You also need to ensure that you have named the p12 file "sigtool.p12" or you will getan error message about "failed to find signing keys"
