You could use dnsmasq for that - a small DHCP/TFTP/DNS server meant for embedded systems. I currently run it on a Linksys WRT54GL Wifi router. Config files, pxelinux stuff and e.g. memtest is on the router itself, Kernels etc on an external server.
If you have shell access to your Android and a working crosscompiler it shouldn't be very complicated.

I think I did not ask my question properly. I mean booting a mobile device (or virtual machine) into Android without having to install anything on the mobile device (or virtual machine). I know iPXE currently does not support 3G or 4G network chips. But it would be great if one can netboot Android using a virtual machine or emulator...
