[android-developers] APK signing and certificate for production device


For production of the device, android APKs needs to be signed. I have created keystore as explained in http://developer.android.com/guide/publishing/app-signing.html and signed my APKs with that keystore.

I am doing it for eclair.

I need to know following things.

(1) Do I need to sign the andoird framework build as well, apart from APKs that I'll provide in my production device? the older guidelines say it. http://www.kandroid.org/online-pdk/guide/release_keys.html

(2) Is there any difference between APK signing and APK certificate?

(3) Any thing else I need to do for signing and certificate?

Thanks in advance.
