0xdroid- build from source without downloading the whole gitorious repo?

following the tutorial here: http://code.google.com/p/0xdroid/wiki/Source
i am able to do everything except the "get 0xdroid source" where i get
stuck. where i'm suppose to do this
$ repo init -u git://gitorious.org/0xdroid/manifest.git -b BRANCH_NAME
$ repo sync

it takes hours and hours and never completes because of crashes and
timeouts. is there anyway to just grab the specific files i need (for
beagle-eclair) so i'm able to build everything with the kernel without
having to wait so long downloading all the different branches and
everything? i'm not exactly sure what exact files i need to build
beagle-eclair so a specific command with what i need to grab would
help. thanks
