I need to compile an application with system permissions in order to use target application com.android.settings. For now while I try to run my apk I get the error message
Test run failed: Permission Denial:
from pid=354, uid=354 not allowed
because package com.jayway.test does
not have a signature matching the
How can I compile my application with system permissions?
Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.
After having some search I found how to sign my application with system (platform) key.
System signatures are located in directory
<root-of-android-source-tree>/build/target/product/security. You can use them to sign your application with system privileges.
Add to manifest android:sharedUserId=”android.uid.system”
Download System signatures files:
- Sign app through terminal (java -jar signapk.jar platform.x509.pem platform.pk8 unsigned.apk signed.apk) (first you must put all files to one folder), or make certificate with keytool-importkeypair to make google_certificate.keystore and then
link for keytool-importkeypair download and explanation:
- After that steps install your signed system app to your device. Good luck!!!
The anser for me was simply delete the debug.keystore file. The default storage location for AVDs is in ~/.android/ on OS X and Linux, in C:Documents and Settings.android on Windows XP, and in C:Users.android on Windows Vista.
In Eclipse I “cleaned” the project, uninstalled the App and the TestApp from the emulator and – voila everything ran fine again.
