Reducing security risks from open source software

A request from Reg forums, where dogged, a silver badge commentard, asks:

I've decided to do something about my old Motorola RAZR V3xx. I love this thing. The form factor is perfect. It's pocket size, it's damage resistant, it's HSDPA, it's easy to use, it never drops calls, it gets four days usage from its tiny battery without issue.

The only problem is the usual Motorola problem - the OS is dogshit. So, i thought, I'm still a programmer. I can do embedded work, I do it all the time. Why not?

Why not? Because it's 2013 and there are no available resources to study from is why not. So. If any of you have any dim and distant memories or even better, current links on how MotoRazr v series phones actually worked - and I want to go much further than just skinning - could you let me know?.

Reg readers, can you provide some pointers? Answers here, please. ®
