Converting Android APK file to BlackBerry BAR file

I have a game I have made for Android and I want to convert it into a BlackBerry game.

And I'm using the BlackBerry's Android 2 BlackBerry converter website. Found here.

 

I all ran okay and I uploaded my game (BAR file) to my profile and waitet for it to be approved.

BUT it got rejected whit this message:

 

Dear App World Vendor, 

While processing your application, release '1.0' from your product 'Planet Defender' (ticket 680665), for inclusion into BlackBerry App World I encountered the following issue(s) that require your attention before we are able to continue. 

Please fix the following issue(s) and resubmit your application as a new release. 

Please note that there should not be any mention of Android or the Android logo on the app title, screenshot, icon, description and in the app itself. Please remove all Android references and images. 

Once these issue(s) have been corrected I will be able to complete the necessary steps that will allow this application to be posted in BlackBerry App World. If at any time you have questions regarding the above issue(s) please don’t hesitate to contact us at BlackBerryAppWorldRequests@rim.com or visit http://developer.blackberry.com/forums for technical support.

 I don't know how to remove the Android reference from the BAR file and wrote to RIM to ask how. They send me to this forum. So I ask you if you could help me.

 

First I want to tell how I made the Android game in the first place.

The game is programmed in the language Monkey. It can be found here.

 

I'm developing on my Mac. So what I do is code the game in Basic and then Monkey compiles it to Android APK file.

The Android SDK must be installed to do that. After compilation I have an Android projekt.

 

So can anyone help me to remove the Android reference from my game?

Re: Converting Android APK file to BlackBerry BAR file

Okay I managed to remove all the Android references in the APK file I think.

But now if I try to convert it I get the following error:

 

We're sorry, an error occurred while processing your request. The information has been registered and we're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.

 What is this?
