Hopefully, using the "test" key that you suggest does not cause the problem that spl0it mentioned.
Just for completeness: every
key causes that "problem".
Well actually, it's not a problem at all, but a "feature" of dev keys. When you unregister your kindle, the entire
developer keystore is deleted, because (according to Amazon's logic) you as a person are not entitled to test-drive any applications anymore. (And this is exactly the reason why JBPatch includes that "auto-install" feature)
@PoP: what do you think about a big fat notice in the first post, stating that everybody should use the test
key, instead of re-inventing their own? This will keep problems for everybody to a minimum.
