    From what I can tell it affects how the CPU is handled and processing time, so theoretically yes. But as android is a Java Stack, or basically a virtual machine, I am not entirely sure.

    yes, but Dalvik runs on top of the kernel, right? if the kernel can be boosted, so would everything running on top of it, like Dalvik.

    This sounds like a great idea. I'd love if some research could get done on this...I'd be willing to help out and test some stuff.

    an alternative which can be used now without a new kernel.
    same question, could this be adapted to android?

    Why don't you go post in the Developers section or ask for the thread to be moved there? That might speed things along. A PM to tanknspank might not be out of the question, either. He's very knowledgeable about the Android system's code.
