android runs "on the metal" so to speak, the QEMU image was for an arm5 processor and linux OS, which happens to be close enough to the Z to make it a replacement for the qemu virtual machine.

now, android is a distro so it expects things to be in certain places, so either you install it replacing your normal Z distro, or you use a "chroot" environment to allow it to see the files where it wants yet not break the host operating system.
