What if I asked for a JTAG pinout for a specific make and model of cell phone? Would this be on topic here?

So your question can be interpreted in a couple of ways/intents, and I'll address those individually. You can either clarify or make the decision for yourself.

If you are asking "Does anyone have the JTAG pinout of my phone", that will probably be closed because it is not about electronics design. In this case, the chances that someone here would have the JTAG pinout are low, and there is a much better chance you would find such information using Google.

If you are asking "How can I find JTAG pins on my phone", that is a better question for the StackExchange format. However, it still isn't a good fit for our site, as it still isn't about electronics design. Consider trying to ask your question on the Reverse Engineering site.

Finally, if you are asking "How can I identify JTAG pin functions given this unlabeled JTAG header?" then that may get a decent answer here, or you may also find an answer on Reverse Engineering.
