Correct use of Rekey?

I understand why you're supposed to use Rekey, but I can't get it to work successfully. I keep getting an "Invalid Password" error, and I've tried every password that genkey has ever generated.

Can anyone give me a step-by-step guide for how to correctly use Rekey?

Thanks!

You rekey by browsing to the PKG file that was signed with the key you want to rekey with, enter the password used to sign that package, and click rekey.

Ah, so you're rekeying a channel that's already been packaged. I thought that you had to rekey your side-loaded channel first, and then package it.

You're actually rekeying the box, so you can sign your sideloaded package with the same key.
