 the error code are defined in the class.
See here: ;a=blob;f=core/java/android/content/pm/;h=53a966d3db126eb6bce3b7878a4876db27ab4402;hb=eclair#l367

-12 seems to be INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK meaning that your app
requires a more recent build that your device is running.

This is confirmed by the info you provided, as your device runs
"Firware Version: 1.0", but you compiled your app for 1.1 and 1.5

1.0 is quite obsolete. I would flash something newer on the phone to
test your app. You can see the distribution of the different version
of android at 

Regarding signed application, all applications must be signed to run
on Android. See more information at

2. Problem updating app in android market.

I have an application in the market and I tried to post an update, but
it says that "The apk must be signed with at least one certificate in
common with the previous version."  I don't have the previous
certificate and I can't simply create a new project since my app is a
paid app and I don't want to have users charged again.  What can I do?
