Has anyone considered this, and does anyone have any tips on next steps I could take?

I have jailbroken and have USB networking.
You might consider this instead of Debian:
http://archlinuxarm.org/

You can try Arch Linux as a LiveCD on your x86{,_64} machine:

Arch Linux is a "binary distribution" (like Debian is) built from the Gentoo source tree.
