You must drag the MobileInstallation file into iTunes, and let it sync. If you have the App Store version of the app, you must delete that from iTunes and your iPod first. And if it still doesnt work, change the .mobileinstallation file name, to .txt, and see if the UDID in the file is correct for you. If not, have the dev reration one.

I really hope you aren't testing the new TD game....because that would tick me off!

How can you get into a beta if you don't even know how to install a beta onto your iDevice?
