    Is it possible to extract a kernel?

    It depends what device you have. Some manufacturers make the kernel source available anyway.

    I don't think you can get the source back if all you have are the binaries on the device though.

    If you mean by find the source from the kernel then no, but most manufacturers(if not all) release the source for the kernels used on their devices. That depends on the device though so you should ask another question with device name or register and post in the appropriate forum to get a copy of the source.
