And I did! :-)

I searched the LC android froum and read a lot of entries until I found the final hint:
I selected "do not sign" in the Android settings, because I do not have any Google 
Dev ID or whatever (yet), but had to change it to "Sign for development only".

Then I put it on my "Google Drive" and could finally install it from there on my own device! 
Puhhh... :-)
