The problem, as you have pointed out, is not software but hardware. Back in the days of "luggable" portables there were different hardware platforms that ran different operating systems, CP/M comes immediately to mind but there were others. That all changed when IBM brought out the PC and developers started writing code for th PC.
To date there is no such standard for phone/computers. If you want to load your version of Linux onto your favorite hardware, go ahead. Then be prepared to implement drivers to get it to function. It all depends on how much effort you want to put into it.
