No access to the original Code signing keys

The company I work for hiring a third party to develop our mobile application, but then later we took it back in-house.  A third already had a release for us until we take on the code.  Now I can't all of third-party developers to send me the csk files they used to sign the release.  We have a massive update to the software that we are ready to release, but we want to show him as an update to the current version and not a new application.  It's my understanding to use the same key signature as before to get there, though.

Assuming that I don't me the csk (s) of the third party, what are my options?

Hi mbamobile,

If it is a PlayBook application, simply contact here and we erase your application package ID:

After that, you can use a new signing key to sign your application and download it in the App World.  The only downside is that users will have two icons for your application, after that they have to download the new version.

If it is an application of BBOS (.cod files), you can sign your application with a different key signature and download it without any intervention on our part.

Thank you

  • Certicom license AFTER the BlackBerry Code signing keys?

    In the code of blackberry signing keys ( ) form there is a field in which you choose if you already license from certicom.

    My question is: can sign for a purchase signing keys first, and then have access to the api of encryption when you finally get the license certicom? Has anyone done it?

    You don't need to worry about the keys to Certicom. Just buy signature key and if you need to Certicom - try to get these more later.

  • I forgot the password of the Code signing key

    Hi, I got the signature key (csk file) by registering on blackberry, but for some reason, I forgot my password... When I try to sign my code it ask me password... I googled a lot to find a way to recover my password, but no avail... Can someone please tell me how to recover my password for the key signature or any other way that i can reset my password... Any kind of help would be appreciated... Thanks in advance...

    This is an old thread... but since it's one of the first results in a Google search, I wanted to bring an answer here.

    It is not possible to recover your password for BlackBerry Code signing keys.  However, you can choose a new if you reinstall your keys.  The first thing you need to do is to order a new set of keys (free) using the form below.

    Before installing your keys, find and delete the files below that will be present in the various BlackBerry development tools installation directories (location varies by tool).


    sigtool. CSK

    sigtool. Set

    You will now be able to install your new CSI files and choose a new password.

  • RIM Web site won't let me download the code signing key

    I had to move to a new computer.  Won't spend my old code key signature RIM, and RIM will not respond to requests to replace.  I'm paying $20 and get new code signing keys.  Whenever I have the form with credit card information, it goes to a screen of error (internal error) and told me to try again in a few minutes.  (After that it clears the form data)

    It is futile to try again.  The site is broken.  I have a request signed on App World I would like to update.

    Any ideas?  Any developer support phone numbers that work?

    Thank you


    [email protected] is usually fast enough.

    You can also try another browser, I had problems with opera and finally with firefox.

    usually, you should be able to copy all the sigtool.* files to your new PC

  • Start testapp error "Module: TestApp-1" must be signed with the Runtime RIM signing key code

  • The process of code signing keys

    Hi all!

    I signed up recently on the forum and I also recently ordered my code signing keys.  To bring added value and we hope to answer my question, I thought that I turn this message in a topic ' what is the process of Code signing?  The best of my knowledge, I expose the steps as follows:

    1. developer fills web form and order of keys to Code signing by credit card

    2 automated response sent back by RIM to the e-mail address of the developer [filled in the form e-mail address]

    3. within 10 days, 3 emails are sent from the owner each containing a Code signing key

    I appreciate your comments provided by senior members of the forum to help complete this process.

    To get to my problem, I'm stuck on step 2 above.  I has not received a response from RIM about my purchase.  I am very sure that my credit card account has been charged because my card company called me 5 minutes after sending the form, and I checked the transaction as legitimate.  I am currently at day 7 of waiting for 10 days and was eager to follow the application process and was looking for some advice on where to start my research.  Is there a specific department within the RIM, I should post?  If so, if someone in the know could send me this email address, I'd be much obliged.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Kind regards


    Sorry to post this late reply.  The keys arrived 3 days after my message.  Thought that I would close this thread.

  • How to stop mail receives the rim (Code signing)

    Is there a way to no longer receive emails from RIM as every time I signed my application using the cod signing keys.

    Just install a rule in your email client or Manager of office than the messages files in a folder or delete them automatically (e-mail desktop client).

  • Code signing keys can be used on more than a developer (different PC)?


    I applied for a set of code a long time ago signing keys.

    I installed them on the JDE on my computer... and I was able to migrate them to my new computer always on the JDE, then on the eJDE thereafter.  I had a few problems of migration of these keys, but everything is working well now, I am able to sign my application.

    Now, I have a colleague who wants to develop an application using Widgets and there need code signing keys as well.  Can I just send my key itself?  Or he must apply to his own set of keys?

    In other words, the code signing keys used to identify a company or developer?

    Thank you!

    Each developer must have their own set of BlackBerry Code signing keys.  Sharing the key is against the license agreement.

    The same set of customer files - RDK.csj and customer - PBDT.csj is usable on multiple computers to create the device debugging token?

    The CSJ files themselves can be installed once.  But after they have been installed, you can save your code signing keys and restore them on multiple computers.  See the link below for more information.

  • Code signing key?

    Hi all

    I am a new programmer of Blackberry. I read about the code signing key on the Blackberry home page. But I have a question. I know the cost because it is $ 20, but what it means? We must pay $ 20 for each application or only pay 1 time for applications that we write and install it on BlackBerry? Thank you!

    No, $20 buys you a set of signature keys. You can sign 0x7FFFFFFF times in total.
