Yes but you might own a device that disallows by design applying an alternative OS.  You don't have a right to own a device that allows by design applying an alternative OS. If you agree to terms of use that proscribe the means by which you'd apply or use an alternative OS, then you're violating the agreement. So you kinda need to know what you're buying before you own it.
