    What I have been doing is using my old keystore that I made in Live Wallpaper creator. When you go to export your project in eclipse, don't go to to androidtools>export unsigned apk just click the export option directly in the file menu, and select android apk in the menu that pops up. Then it will ask you to locate your keystore or make a new one, so find your existing keystore in live wallpaper creator in the companies folder under settings and select it. Then it will ask you for your password and alias and what not, so just fill that in. Then save it. And bam. No need for a new keystore, no need to run zip align, no need for thought. Your apk will be completed, signed, and Google will accept it (even as an update to existing live wallpapers) no problem. Hope this helps people out, its been working just fine for me. :)

    Then eclipse will save your preferences so you won't even need to repeat any of the above steps. Just write-and-go. And there is no need to memorize the entire web page that google gives you for creating a keystore. :)
