Creating a .bar from .apk for Playbook using existing .p12 file

Long story short a previous employee created our last version of the Android for Playbook .bar file. When he left he left me the .p12 file and the password but not the barsigner.csk and barsigner.db as mentioned here: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Testing-and-Deployment/Backup-and-Restore-BlackBerry-Code-Sig.... Is it possible to update the .bar file with just the .p12 file and password, and not have to request new signing keys from RIM?

No, the 2 barsigner files are the important components.  If they are not the same (you request new keys), this happens:  Application Upgrade Appears as a New Separate Application


It doesn't matter if the author.p12 file changes.
