Updating our existing Roku app

When first generating our Roku app .pkg file, I used the Eclipse export plugin, which generated a nice id and password. Of course, I did not write that id and password down, thinking it would be stored safely...somewhere.

Now when I'm updating our Roku app .pdk file, Eclipse regenerated the id and password.

And so now Roku won't accept the updated .pkg file because the dev id is different.

I've read about rekeying your Roku device by downloading the existing (current) .pkg (or .zip?) file and loading it into the Roku utilities via my browser. But, you have to have the password of that original .pkg to rekey your device. And I don't have that.

So I'm scratching my head about what to do next. Any suggestions? I'm stumped...

Unfortunately, without the password, you are basically starting over. Always save the password and the last .pkg file you made. Maybe it's in the Eclipse logs somewhere?

Thankfully, Roku support did allow me to update my existing Roku app .pkg signed with a different DevID. They just ask that I note the change in the version release notes.
And yes, I have the new DevID and password recorded elsewhere now!
Thanks!
