I downloaded the lates impactor and then copied the latest yalu beta 7 file its shows a warning. 'The action will revoke and replace any existing apple developer certificate association with your account it may or may not have some complicated effect on your workflow if you are an apple developer'. So should i press ok and do it or should i cancel it??

@Pratik - I too had trouble with this but through trial and error I figured it out, and its pretty simple. 1: Delete (or move) the .p12 file on computer that was made in the cydia impactor folder. 2: Delete the Yalu app from iOS device. 3: Make sure your device is displayed and Drag the Yalu IPA into impactor just like the first time, give it your apple id login info & click okay to proceed past the revoke preexisting certificate warning and very shortly Yalu app will be on your device again. 4: Just like the first time you need to enable trusting your new certificate in settings > general > profiles. - Now you've got 7 days and 7 hours that it's good for again, unless you have an account that's an official paid account - then you've got longer =)

Well, Paulie, if you're an IT guy, then tell me how you put a text message monitoring service on your kid's iPhone without jailbreaking it. I'd love to know the answer to that one. You know, since you're such a smart IT guy and all.
