Using the TestFlight from Apple can be a cruel thing. The beta tester just saying: The app freezes. And yes, it does. But nobody can know why it freezes. The problem is, that the app, approved for beta testing, has the deploy status "production". Following that, no error messages from Appcelerator appears and every developer has to guess, what the error is and how to get it. So could you please give an ability to set the deploytype manually? I think, I'm not the only one with this problem. Without Appcelerator error warnings and red messages, a beta testing is a cruel thing. If there is an other way, please instruct me.

    Titanium/mobilesdk/osx/SDK Version/iphone/cli/commands/_build.js
       this.deployTypes = {
       		'simulator': 'development',
       		'device': 'test',
       		'dist-appstore': 'production',
       		'dist-adhoc': 'production'
       this.deployTypes = {
       		'simulator': 'development',
       		'device': 'test',
       		'dist-appstore': 'test',
       		//'dist-appstore': 'production',
       		'dist-adhoc': 'production'
    I only may not to forget reverting my changes when deploying to the AppStore ;) But without this change, beta tester gain no red screen and just mentioned, that the app freezes.
