Unlikely. Same as all other Android phones. Nightmare to get root and
after that, you have quite some work to remove the Androidisms. Or teach
FSO to use them as well. Modem-interface unclear.

See Nexus.

See Nexus, minus rooting.

Likely. It uses basic GNU/Linux, and the modem interface is at least
somewhat known. Advanced drivers (Wifi, BT, PowerManagement, Camera)
unknown though.

Very likely, if it wasn't for the completely obfuscated modem interface
which we're still working on.

Unrealistic. There won't be a Linux-port soon.

Not really, FSO has a page on the wiki, but since we're not in the
kernel business, but rather working on middleware, we rely on the
various reverse-engineering communities to do the grunt work.
