App distribution on the fly


I know two way to distribute a version:
- You send an adhoc build (can be made really easy thanks to distribution services like testflightapp.com )
- You use a promo code (it can be done even if your app is not released)

Some guy told me that Apple updated their system and that you can now send an app on the fly to more than 100 users without having to add their UDID to the profile. Does someone know if it's true ? He said that you must have a company account to do that.
(I think he's mistaken, but if it is it would change my life).

Maybe true through jailbreaking the devices or something of that nature but, as of right now, it is limited to 100 devices. I haven't seen any work-arounds or cut-throughs.

have you tried testflightapp.com? it will not bypass any adhoc restriction of apple, but it's much easy to recruit testers and collect UDID and send builds around.
