Quick Tip: Update Debug Token on Playbook

After a few weeks I got back to projects for BlackBerry Playbook and I realized my debug token on device is no longer valid.

Debug & Deploy Flash on Android

It is now a few weeks after I started experimenting with AIR for Android. While watching all the great tutorials about how to make things work (AIR for Android – Part 1, Part 2) and how to debug application running on device (Debug AIR apps on Android with Flash Builder 4, another in french and Flash), I have decided to attach some of my own findings and practices to build, deploy and debug apps.

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 🙁 )
