Open source... but not simple

http://forum.xda-developers.com – Hi everyone I'll be honest : I'm a noob in android. I know that android is an open system. You can do all the modding you want. But holy cow, it's seem really complicated for me. Why? Because I have a SGH-T959D from Telus. It's not a standard phone like a I9000 or a Google Nexus. But why is that so complicated to flash the firmware? To check compatibility with kernel x.x.x.x.? The Jig usb is necessery? Google tells it's an open system, but it seems that I have to read a thread with 100 pages of posts for 3 hours to study if I can do it or not? I know open system does not mean simpl (HowTos)
