-NOTE: make apk needs creates a debug signed .apk, not suitable for distribution.
-It expects that this key already exists.
-You should be able to generate it with "keytool" using the following options:
-* Keystore name: "debug.keystore"
-* Keystore password: "android"
-* Key alias: "androiddebugkey"
-* Key password: "android"
-* CN: "CN=Android Debug,O=Android,C=US"
-* validity: 365 days
+You can install that on the device:
+ $ $ANDROID_SDK_PATH/tools/adb install -r bin/Rockbox.apk
-Google docs mention the SDK tools can generate it as well, but I haven't found how yet.
