Thanks a lot for your answer. I hadn't realized they've extended the free Playbook offer up to March, 2nd.
In that case I'll try uploading it as a completely new application.
But how come I can't delete my own applications from the AppWorld?
How do I "remove the current app from sales"? I don't find any option to that effect in the Vendor Portal.
Will I be able to use the same app name? (I mean the reverse domain name "air.com.mycompany.myname")
Thanks for your help!

Thanks a lot for the tip. So, from what can I gather from that thread, I can regenerate the barsigner.db by just editing my current barsigner.db and replacing current RDK client number with the old one, which appears in the subject line of the mail RIM sends when registering the old CSJ (mail which I still have).
Ok, I can do that, but what if the barsigner.csk file was also overwritten? I've tested a few times, and I see that each time you generate a csk file, even with the very same password, the "PrivateKey" and "Salt" strings are different, so I suppose I can't get the previous values back, and I suspect that using different PrivateKey and Salt strings will get me in the end a package that will again be refused in the AppWorld Vendor Portal with a similar error message. Am I right?
So I guess my only option is uploading a new different application and leave the old one there...
This is my first AppWorld application, and I feel the whole signing process is very counter-intuitive, and much more complex than it should, specially if a little mistake can cause you ruining your app forever. Imagine if instead of a rejected app, I accidentally overwrite the keys of an already published app with lots of users! Then I couldn't update that app ever again! And I've seen people in these forums complaining about just that problem!
And I thought Apple's signing and uploading process was bad enough...
