    Good morning! I have searched on this forum for awhile and was unable to find answers to my questions and was hoping someone would take a minute and help me out.

    I understand that the Kernel houses the drivers and the ROM is the GUI & applications. Does that mean that it's possible to take a 2.1 tablet and somehow siphon out the Kernel and then use the 2.2 SDK to write a custom 2.2 OS using the existing Kernel?

    I'm looking to code a completely custom Android tablet experience but I'm not sure what all is required and how far Android can be customized?

    Is it realistically possible to create a completely custom tablet that powers on to a specific application without any options to exit the program? Basically a locked down tablet only for using the browser or a specific application that I select?

    Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Ethan
