    Ok so I am coming back to an Android project I haven't messed with in a year and a new install of Unity on a new machine. After getting past a number of other problems, I now have it building to the phone but right after it installs the APK, I get this error:

    Code (csharp):
    1. Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_NO_CERTIFICATES]
    I have googled this and people are talking about making sure you have deleted old packages and what not. I have done this and has made no difference.

    I have also tried creating a new keystore and still no go.

    At my wit's end at the moment and would appreciate any help. Also I have tried running this:

    jarsigner -verify -verbose -certs mypackage.apk

    It says:

    Code (csharp):
    1. jar verified.
    2.  
    3. Warning:
    4. This jar contains entries whose certificate chain is not validated.
    Edit: I just checked some other packages that I made awhile ago and get the same output, and they still install just fine, so I guess that's normal.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Here's what appears to be the relevant lines from the logcat:

    So it's failing on /Assembly-CSharp-firstpass.dll

    Still not sure where to go from there though??

    Please anyone? I am completely dead in the water here and have no clue what to do. Is there any official support I can get on this perhaps?

    GRRRR, I just figured this out. JDK 7, Don't USE IT! =) I downgraded to JDK 6 and this fixed the issue along with another issue I was having implementing the TapJoy plugin. Someone should probably look into why JDK 7 breaks stuff since I am sure I won't be the only one that decides to just download the latest version on a re-install.

    aha! Rolling back to JDK 6 worked for me, too!

    My case was especially bad, since I didn't know what the "expected behavior" was for trying to install a certified app locally, and I thought that the "certification failed" error I was getting was normal!

    :)

    I also realized why OSX users would not run into this very easily, JDK 6 is pre-installed by the OS. Pretty handy when I was working on my Mac the other day.

    akasurreal,you're my life saver !

    Please Unity guys, update documentation on this :!::

    DO NOT USE JDK 7 FOR SIGNING applications for Android.

    The phone just display "Application not installed" , and adb logcat says :
    Package com.Xxxxx.yyyy has no certificates at entry assets/bin/Data/Mana

    Downgrade to JDK6 (don't forget to aim pour PATH env variable to its bin directory).

    I had this JDK7 signing problem with BD-J jars (which also use self-signed certificates) - adding the root certificate as trusted CA to the certificate store solved the problem (keytool -importcert -trustcacerts -file root.crt ...).

    Hope this helps!

    problem apparently fixed -- I again uninstalled JDK alltogether, and reinstalled 6 -- things look ok, submitting to market now and crossing fingers.

    ____________________________

    So I was having the signing problem, and downgrading to JDK6 did fix it -- and jarsigner now properly verifies the file.

    But unfortunately, I am still unable to install the app. When I download it off my server, it fails to install. When using Unity to Build Run, I'm getting this INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_NO_CERTIFICATES

    I'm unable to sign the app directly using keytool/jarsigner because unity signs it with the debug certificate and there's a byte count mismatch.

    48 hours and counting -- any thoughts are appreciated

    I have downgraded to JDK6, set the PATH env variable but I still get
    "Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_NO_CERTIFICATES]"
    :(
    Can anyone help me ?

    Edit : I found the solution here. You need to create your keystore using the JDK6, you can't create a keystore using JDK7, realize it doesn't work, downgrade, and then valid the keystore create with jdk7. You must do everything using JDK6.

    Thx BazLevelUp too! Mother effing jdk7... After recreating keystore with jdk6, everything seemed to build nice and it installed well. Let see if GGplay handles it well too when I publish.
    Double thumbs up dudes.

    Apparently this issue is still a problem, so thanks a lot for your help in this thread! In addition to the JDK downgrade I also had to create a new keystore using keytool from JDK6, but once that was done it solved the problem.

    this is not fixed...Unity or Java or Android...one of the three of you please address this issue

    two machines...one w7-64 the other w7-32, both downgraded to JDK/JRE 6

    w7-64 machine created keystore and passwords and what not..can install to galaxy S and to nexus 7...w7-32 can install to galaxy S but can not install to nexus 7...

    keystore files (that i can find) were checked into svn by w7-64 machine...

    very frustrating and very much a show stopper
