I do not think so. It depends about software licences only. Maybe the
tools on Android are not Open Source Softwares? I only know that it is
based on linux kernel, but it does not imply to have only Free

The Mozilla foundation recently released their OS for smartphones, maybe
this could help you?
The problem is that currently the phones with this OS are not available:
they did not built enough of them :)
If you really want to be able to tinker stuff on your phone and if you
have enough time, I guess you could wait until some become re-available.

PS: this is the Debian user list, this question would have not been
off-topic there, since this one is dedicated to questions about Debian,
not about linux in general.
