Android :: Generating MD5 Fingerprint With New Keystore
Sep 23, 2010
I'm trying to generate the MD5 Fingerprint I will use with the release of my application. I used Eclipse to Compile and Sign my application, which gave me a keystore file and a .apk file. Now i need to generate the MD5 for my MapViews. I tried using the cmd prompt to generate it, but everytime it states that no such file exists. Is there somewhere special i need to be storing the keystore so the keytool has access to it? Also, once i get the MD5 fingerprint, all i have to do is insert it and re-compile and sign my application (the same way i previously did it). Am i correct on that assumption? I've read through the developer docs and I'm still unclear on the whole process.
I am trying to publish my first Android application, and therefore need to sign the app with a keystore. At first everything goes well. I type the following into the command prompt: keytool -genkey -v -keystore testKeystore.keystore -alias testKeystore -keyalg RSA -validity 10000. I answer the several questions that follow, but after the last question, I get the following error. keytool error: java.io.FileNotFoundException: testKeystore.keystore [Access is denied] Maybe I am doing some silly mistake, but I have followed several guides on the internet on how to make a keystore, and I thought that was all there was to it?
I was browsing the web and I saw an application that claimed to scan for user's fingerprints so I thought I should give it a try, the app worked well and I was amazed! does anyone know how this app reads user's fingerprint? how is this possible on android? any tutorial or hints or any open source project? I think this will help a lot of developers thanks maxsap.
keytool -list -alias alias_name -keystore my-release-key.keystore using above command when i try to create md5 fingerprint. it asks for the password and in password i cannot type any thing. can any one guide me how can i create this i need this finger print to run google map api in android and to obtain googlemap api key from google website.
I'd like to be able to get the MD5 fingerprint of the certificate associated with my app (regardless of whether it's the debug cert or the release cert). You're probably aware that in order to get a Google Maps API key, you need to provide them with the certificate fingerprint of your app so that they can match the key with the fingerprint when you use it so as to ensure it's "really you". I've got a similar situation in which I'd like to make requests against a URL (my server) and would like to pass my app's fingerprint as part of the request. I've got no clue which classes I should be looking at.
keytool -list -alias androiddebugkey -keystore ~/.android/debug.keystore. -storepass android -keypass android I'm not sure how I can sign my debugkey so that I can use Google Maps. I have verified in Eclipse that this is where my debugkey is stored.
Suddenly my R file has stopped generating. It has deleted itself and won't come back. In eclipse, I have all the latest updates to the sdk and the plugging. Has this ever happened to anyone else before, how do you fix it?! I have tried restarting, cleaning the project, rebuilding, doing the Android->fix project properties.
I renamed the package in the manifest from com.a to com.a.beta in order to upload a different version to the Android Market.
In the manifest I changed the referenced entities (services, activities etc.) to use the fully qualified name "com.a.X" instead of just ".X". Of course the code still references com.a.R, so there is lots of errors in Eclipse. My expectation would have been though that R.java will be regenerated in com.a.beta. But it is not generated at all.
After i created my project. The R file is not generating. I need to build the application to create that R file. After i add any image or string. It is not automatically adding in R file. I need to build another time to generate that code in R file. what is the reason?
I am trying to add some updates to an already released application but something has happened with my workspace that prevents me from Running or Exporting the application. I keep getting the following code...
You think it would be an easy fix but I looked into the HDPI drawables folder and there were no doubles. I even went as far as to delete the entire folder and the error still appears. Anyone got any clever ideas?
I would like to be able to generate unique serial numbers for each Android device for use in unlocking an application. How could I do this? EDIT: The reason is I want to revamp a paid application and provide users who have paid for the old version, which will have a different package name, a way to obtain the full version by downloading an unlikable free version of the application. I would push an update to the old version that would generate and display the code that they could enter to turn the Free version into a fully functional version.
I'm working on an Android class that extends MapActivity. I have set the OnTouchListener and everything works okay for the first MotionEvent. After the first MotionEvent, the system stops either generating MotionEvents or receiving them or both.
Does anybody know what I have to do to keep receiving MotionEvents?
Absolutely LOVELY. Went on beautifully with no bubbles or trapped dirt, though I must explain my application process. I did like most users suggested and ran a steaming hot shower and closed the doors, from here I used a sticky sheet that came with my iPod Touch screen protector that you lay on the device and then peel off to remove all dust, then cleaned all smudges with the microfiber cloth.
To put on, I simply peeled back the top end of the protector only, with the hard card thingy they give you for bubbles in my other hand, then slowly lined up the protector on the top edge and over the earpiece, from here I just squeegeed down the phone, peeling back more and more until it was on, then I got rid of all other little bubbles, and that was that! Perfectly applied!
So I am very used to anti glare/fingerprint protectors, as I am totally unaccepting of the slightest smudges, so I am very accustomed to the clarity loss, but I do understand that this has been a problem with others who have purchased this protector. I can say that it is not really any worse than any other anti glare protectors, and there's hardly any rainbow effect on white screens, if any at all, which is a big improvement over the lexerd anti glare I had on before this one (we won't get into much of that, just don't ever buy it).
NO fingerprints show, it's amazing, I mean with my other one it would heavily reduce them, but they would still sort of show in direct light, here, NONE! And the matte feeling gives the best feeling and sound when swiping (or should I say Sywpe-ing) on the touch screen.
I HIGHLY recommend this protector if you want the anti-glare and no fingerprints and of course don't mind the recuction in screen clarity, and with the Droid and its beautiful screen, this can be a bit hard, but if you can sacrifice a bit, you will be extremely happy!
I'm running a sample application that has a map component to it. The app launch find, but I don't see the map loading. I read sometime ago that it might be caused by keystore mismatch? How do I set keystore? Been trying to find it from google and eclipse but can't find where I can change that.
1. How do you programmatically generate key strokes? I found some tutorials where it says to use IWindowManager, but that doesn't exist anymore in 1.5. (And WindowManager doesn't provide any function to generate key strokes)
2. How do you programmatically select one item from a ListView? Is it possible to do it with the index of the list item (it's position in the list)
I put two projects into Eclipse, called Project1 and Project2.Project1 is independent, but Project2 must be dependent to Project1.When I build the Project2, the error msg comes like this: Error generating final archive: duplicate entry: AndroidManifest.xml
I'm creating a 2d game and have run into another problem. I use array lists for generating everything that has multiple instances, background images, foreground images, enemies, etc. The problem I have is if I choose to generate any more than a certain number of any given object I get an arrayindexoutofboundsexception even though the code works fine with lower numbers. For the background images that are larger, the number seems to be lower (about 40). for enemies, which are smaller, the limit is more (about 150). I don't believe I'm out of memory as I'm not getting that error.
generation code Y=0 last = 13
The above codes work if the variable is lower. But sends the error as soon as it goes above a certain number.
I ordered 6 from ebay for under ?2.50. For that price, they seem like they wouldn't be as described, so when I receive them, I will let you all know how they are 6 ANTI FINGERPRINT SCREEN FILM Sony Xperia X10 phone on eBay (end time 01-Dec-10 22:30:20 GMT): Just thought i'd let you know because they are very cheap @ under ?2.50 for 6
I know that, to be able to sign a package with your own keystore, you have to use the export from eclipse. However, its not easy to keep doing this when you're still debugging the application. Since i have external libraries that uses another keystore and use the shareUserId, it would be reasonable to let, in eclipse plugin, you debug an application using any keystore.Any tips of how to make debugging easy with a private keystore?
I am having Java SSL based server and I want to connect android SSL supported client to it. My keystore in Java is JKS, but android says no JKS implementation found. It supports BKS. Is there any way to have JKS support for android ? If not then how can use BKS in Java. I am trying using PKCS12, but documentation says using PKCS12 for trustanchors purpose is not supported.
I'm about to release an application in the Android Market. I need to generate a keystore to sign my application. The docs are a little spares on what I'm support to put into for the -dname param. Here is the line I'm using: keytool -genkey -v -alias release -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -dname "CN=mydomain.com" -keystore my.keystore -validity 10000
What is required in the -dname (Distinguished Name) field? I found out that I can include the CN field. Are there other fields that I must put in before the Market will accept the app? Any good optional ones to put in? Updated I found out I can examine other apk's by using: jarsigner -verify -verbose -certs nameof.apk
I have some code for my app that creates a keystore in android, creates some default keys then saves the keystore. Later on the code tries to reload the keystore, on the emulator this runs fine however when run on a phone I get an EOFException. Any advice on where I'm going wrong?
An out take of the code is below:..........................
I am trying to create certificates for users for my program. I am have created a keystore and included the publickeystore.store with my application in the assets folder. I created all the certificates using the keytool program from JAVA. When I try to authenticate the certificate I get the following error: 12-05 17:32:49.962: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(891): Caused by: java.security.KeyStoreException: KeyStore JKS implementation not found
I'm surprisingly frustrated by this, and I suspect the answer is simple. I have compiled and signed my android app using the Export Wizard, as described here in the section 'Compile and sign with Eclipse ADT'. I would like to backup the keystore and have it handy for future app updates, but I can't figure out for the life of me where the keystore is saved. I of course can use Eclipse to go through the process, but if something happens to my computer I'll be pretty screwed.
To this point, I've been doing development on multiple machines but always packaging for deployment on the same machine. If I want to package for deployment on another machine, will simply copying the keystore file to the new machine do the trick? Anything else I need to be concerned about when doing this?
I generated a new android project in eclipse. I then copied all the files from chapter 3 in my book over to the project. After doing so the R.anything is not available and the resource file is missing. I try to clean the project and generate it but it isn't working. What I can do to fix this error?
