I am trying to upload air Apps (apks signed with a self signed certificate) and used Animate CC for creating the signed apk.
Now Google play console wants me to upload updates with an upload_cert which is in .der format.
Google App signing is turned on permanantly and i can not opt out
As far as I know a .p12 file which is needed for signing with Animate does contain a private key, while the upload_cert.der provided from the Play Console for my app does not include a private key.
So how do i generate a new p12 file with which I can create signed apks that are not rejected by google?
When I upload an update signed with my private key I get the uploaderror message:
You uploaded an APK that is not signed with the upload certificate. You must use the same certificate. The upload certificate has fingerprint:
[ SHA1: ++++++++++++++++++ ]
and the certificate used to sign the APK you uploaded have fingerprint:
[ SHA1: --------------------------- ]
When I create a p12 with openssl and my private key, my certificate and the upload_cert I get the same upload error.
my Questions are:
1. Is there a trick to opt out of Google app signing programm?
2. Is there a way to generate a valid p12 file based on the upload_cert.der?
Any Ideas, help, suggestions are welcome!
to sign a google play app using your public google play key, Re: Publishing for Android has changed. How do I create a certificate using the new Google guidelines?
skip to my post that has detailed info and screenshots.
I did not realized that i can to opt out during the release process to avoid the Google Play App Signing Programm.
So step 1. works for me.
In the case someone is as blind as me:
Before you upload an apk you have to opt out. If you miss or if you accidently opt in you can not go back.
opt out is in: release management -> app releases -> edit release, first block: chose : "not now" !
Step 2: hope google App signing never gets obligatory.
