    • @vizag Option 1: Create a new keystore and save the signed APK, like I said in the blog

      Option 2: About knowing someone’s key, it will be needed only to submit/update an app which is already in play store. Also to get an existing keystore file and keystore password, the one who created it should share it to you. Of course, you should be part of their organisation.
