Since it's the communications stack that's proprietary in this case, I don't
think that will work.

There is also a proprietary package manager. It looks like there is a free
software replacement for it, but the replacement is unable to modify even more
things on the phone -- at least that's what I get from reading at
linuxdevices.com; I haven't actually tried myself.
