Debug & Deploy Flash on Android

It is now a few weeks after I started experimenting with AIR for Android.

To start, it is a good practice to setup your environment variable path to Android sdk and AIR sdk:

PATH: ...;C:/Users/Yoz/Work/Android/SDK/2.2;C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4\sdks\4.1.0.16076-AIR2.5\bin

Next, the whole certificate thing does not make sense to me because you can/have to create one by yourself. The cert need to be valid for 25 years else Android Market will not accept your application (bye bye real signed certificate from PGP TrustCenter 🙁 )
