I believe it is possible with root on a device. However, the networks that
you're attached to may case complications. Carrier networks may not pass
your traffic, or you might be beating a hornet's nest a bit there. On WiFi
networks things are a bit tricky too due to the way layer 2 is implemented.
Just some thoughts...

as part of my software M.Sc degree I'm looking to do a proof of concept
that requires me to do some programming between level2 and level3 of the
network stack, basically to look at, and possibly modify, packets in the
link layer.
Is this possible on the Android platform? On Windows I'd use something
like Pcap, but totally clueless on the Android platform (although liking
what I see so far)
