If you had this experience , it's frustrating ...
Without your key-store and key-pair you can't even update your application, publishing a new app is out of the question.
 
While it's not possible to recover your lost key-store or key pair there is a solution for this problem.

What you will need to do


If you didn't lost the key-store skip step 1
Step 1 : Create a new key-store 
Step 2:  Generate a new key-pair 
Step 3:  Extract the certificate of the key-pair to pem format
