Suppose I have an app v.188.8.131.52 signed and put into AppWorld for Playbook 2.0. I've ported this app to BB10 and want to publish it under the same name and the same version but for BB10 device. Is that possible. It seems that I must change version because when I try to sign it I get an error "this version has already been signed".
Can somebody please confirm that I have to change version number even if platform is different?

I've spent a lot of time today trying to achieve what should be really simple/obvious so I'd really appreciate clear explanation here.
Again suppose I have an app BGmotIsSlacker v.0.0.0.1 which is published in AppWorld for PlayBook 2.x.
I port this app (let's call it port as there are changes in the way Qt libs are handled now and screen resolution) to BB10 Alpha device. I successfully sign my BGmotIsSlacker v.0.0.0.10 with Signing Server and now want to put it into AppWorld so happy owners of BB10 devices are aware that this outstanding app is also available on BB10 Alpha now.
I want all users (PB and BB10) to see my app with the same name and version.
What way should I follow:
1) Create new Product with the same app name (actually this step succeeds) and add new binary (this step fails).
2) Under my product BGmotIsSlacker add new binary targeting BB10 device ?
If the answer is 1) then what fields in descriptor file should be changed (except versions) to make it successful?
If 2) is the way to go (I actually have not tried that being afraid that BB10 version will make version for 2.x unavailable) then again what fields in descriptor file should be different from the version for 2.x OS?
And simple quriosity question: when BB10 comes to playbook in what way we'll be managing different app versions for different OS versions (the same device)?
PS: sorry if it is covered somewhere, I did not find any straightforward instructions/explanations.

Just tried to follow 2) and when uploading my signed .bar file i get "File bundle (BGmotIsSlacker-0_0_1_31.bar) has been rejected. Package ID is required for all .bar file. If this is an upgrade, Package ID must match Package ID in original file bundle."
So, I've changed package id as you advised prevously and I've changed version (I have 0_0_1_3 for 2.x)

Application signing is not my focus point, but this may shine some light on your situation:
Let us know how it goes;
