How did you create your project.

I created it on ruby and rails command prompt, then i opened it in sublime text 2 when it was needed

rails new treebook? What version fo rails are you using.

yes, and im using 1.8.7 crap dont tell me it makes a difference >_< ...

big difference. I'm not even sure ruby 1.8.7 is supported anymore. You need: Ruby 1.9.3 or greater, Rails 3.2.6 or greater (preferable 3.2.14)

does this mean i'll have to start over?

No, you'll need a proper gemfile, and follow the installation directions properly from the video..

see i knew i needed a mac...

Android Devolpment is part of the Java language. I suggest you to take a look at ruby before jumping into android
