Today I learnt that on some android devices it is impossible to make 100% custom roms because the phone maker company has made source code of SoC closedsource like Samsung's exynos powered devices.

So I was wondering which android device has all of its source codes available for ultimate customization.

also please tell me, is it always the SoC maker which makes source code closedsource or its the phone maker which makes sourcecode closed source?

Thanks!

most likely the recent Motorola phones (moto X/G) will have open source codes since google owned motorola when they came out, same with the nexus line.

Nope otherwise they would allow for all of their phones to be able to unlock their bootloaders, they have a few but the camera drivers are not so thats a big problem
