Do I need to do it manually or the sign check box in the intel XDK already do it?I'm asking this because I've saw many divergent statements about it. Some say that it works and others say that you need to do it manually. If so, is this tutorial the one to do it? (https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/861/ho ... apk?page=2)

I found this (https://forums.html5dev-software.intel. ... app#p34830)

Should I ask for the keystore in the foruns after building it? It seems weird.

Anyone that already have published an app could help me on that?Thanks!

I have published on Google Play easily and successfully with Intel XDK by just checking the "Signed" box under "Build Settings" for your particular game. All automatic in my experience. Good luck.

But how do I know my own keystore? I think it must be in your possession in order to update your own app.

You can use our doc ;)


Thanks @AndreasR :) But could you explain me just a bit about the keystore?This process will still be valid if I change computers?Because I work on both of them.

am I stuck to the computer I did this sign and align apk process? In which situations do I need my keystore?

Please, these questions are killing me.

Hi,
The keystore signs your app, so you can only update it on the store if you sign the update with the same key. Also it includes information about the developer (your name, addresse and so on)
And no, it's just the keystore file important, not the computer. Aslong you have your keystore file and your alias/passwort you can sign the apk on every computer.

Thanks for the help, @AndreasR . Really appreciated!

Edit: @AndreasR , I can't align my apk. The verification fails. What should I do?

Edit: I double click the zipalign file but nothing is opening. Could be that too?

@AndreasR , the verification fails, but when I try to align It says that alignment is done. Some files says that was aligned others says it was compressed and passed. What should I do?
