On this part: you hire a team of programmers and pay them to do R&D for a few months. Note that you don't want the cheap kind of programmer (students), you need the expensive, experienced kind that understands how to write device drivers and integrate with a complex app. Be sure to let the Oracle devs know when you're done, they'll be very appreciate I'm sure.

True mouse integration is not possible without GAs, but perhaps things like the absolute pointer mode will provide a better experience.

Hi,mpack.Thanks so much.
Maybe I should ask som question concrete.
I found "vboxguest.ko","vboxsf.ko","vboxvideo.ko" in the genymotion android guest。This is a reluctant way to meet my needs。
But how to Integrate these modules("vboxguest.ko","vboxsf.ko","vboxvideo.ko") with the android-x86?

To my knowledge, VirtualBox has no Guest Additions for Android guests. If you see Guest Additions then it's unlikely that they came from the official devs. Perhaps some third party attempted a port of the Linux GAs. In any case I would take a look to see if there's a README to go along with the modules you found so you can contact and question whomever is responsible, because I don't believe it is anyone here.

3rd parties like Genymotion provide such things. You need to talk to them, not to Oracle.
