No, they have malls in the more Westernized countries. Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, UAE, etc. The malls are usually on the high end as well to accommodate the amount of wealth those countries produce via oil and natural gas.

Jailbraking an iphone basically means it can be manipulated at the root level to go beyond the cell phone companies restrictions. So, third party apps are available and the phone can be used on a different network than originally programed. Its also extremely simple so the majority of end users can figure it out.
