It is possible to override a step in the boot process (after all underlying dependencies have been met) to load an .apk file automatically? The optimal solution would be without something such as tasker.

Could you please elaborate what you're trying to achieve -- so possible answers would better match your needs? – Izzy Oct 11 '12 at 6:11
Do you mean you wish to open an app upon startup? With the way you specify .apk, it sounds like you wish to install an app on boot. Because that is what happens when you open an .apk file on android. – Stephen Schrauger Oct 11 '12 at 12:16
