In this paper, the authors are discussing porting methods of Linux console based applications to Android platform and primarily concentrating on migration of Hadoop from personal computer to Android device. There are four different approaches towards porting methodology viz. recompilation of Linux binaries using bionic c library, running Android under Linux, running Linux in Android environment, and virtualization method of multiple virtualized Linux running parallel. They are focusing on implementation of Linux with help of 'Chroot' method.
