Bob, please let me summarize: bootloader, kernel (+device tree) and a 
file system for the user space are needed to port Tizen or any other 
GNU/Linux distribution to a new hardware device. All these component 
have to be (cross) compiled for the targeted device and its exact 
hardware architecture. Sometimes depending on the requirements of the 
distribution certain additional options have to be enabled in the kernel 
defconfig, for example Tizen requires SMACK.

Best regards,
