    I'm pretty sure the answer to this question is a big NO, but I was wondering if Google had a program where they would sign your app so that you could be granted certain "signed" permissions? If not, is there ANY other way to get granted these permissions?

    Hey Dave

    I've never heard of such a thing.

    What kind of permissions are you talking about?

    There are a whole slew of permissions that are only given to applications that are signed with the same key as the application that declares the permission; android.permission.DEVICE_POWER is one of those (the application being the android system). What's annoying is that you do not get an exception on install if you request that permission in your manifest; you are simply not given it.
