    Is it possible to develop an application that will allow you to use your SD card memory, or 8gb internal memory, as usable RAM?

    It's pretty easy to set up. You just make a file using dd and format the file to swap. You then can use swapon to mount the file as swap. Before powering off make sure you use swapoff to unmount it. The only caveat is you need busybox with those two utilities compiled in.
