That is not true: Raspbian, for example, has a "normal" Debian repo at
https://archive.raspbian.org. With debootstap, schroot and Qemu you can
build a customized Raspbian system. The firmware (i.e. the binary stuff
needed for the VideoCore IV "co"-processor plus the kernel images can
also be had at https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware.git.

With all that you can build a viable image to "burn" on an SD card, all
from the confort of your powerful desktop machine.

I know because I've done it. My writeup is still pretty incomplete, not
yet fit for publishing, but others have written about it:


How do you think the Raspberry Pi founadion builds its images?
