Old RAZR's

What I want is the ability to flash my old RAZR with the new Linux-based system. Anyone have any idea if this might be possible, kinda like a firmware upgrade? I figure my old phone still has a lot of life in it and deserves the ability to upgraded.

I think this new phone may use motorola's new Linux kernel, that is single processor for baseband and application, so most likely it will ship with an arm11 based processor other than arm9, which is seen on previous products.
In other words, the binary may not be compatible.
