We have already told you how much Chinese love to jailbreak iPhone. Earlier we told you that more than 34.6 of the iOS devices in China are jailbroken. Now when we talk about China, its very obvious that Government is pretty much in charge of many things which even includes web surfing. Remember Google and China conflict due to censorship issue. Google was forced shift Chinese server to Hong Kong. Anyways seems like now they have decided to fully support iOS jailbreaking.
Ministry of National Defense of People’s Republic of China is intended to release their official app named as PLA Daily. Its a news reader. The app targets People’s Liberation of China (PLA) and it seems that the target audience have to jailbreak their devices in order to install this app.
South China Morning Post says:
But there’s a catch: the new app is not available at the official Apple Store. Users who download the PLA app will have to “jailbreak” their iPhone – hack into the operating system – before installing it.
While many government organisations around the world have released iPhone apps, it is almost unheard of for a government organisation to provide “jailbreak-only” software to the public.
It is not clear whether the app was first sent to Apple for App Store and got rejected or not. May be it was rejected by Apple for some reason or they might be directly coming under the jailbreak umbrella.
