Downloading issues with 0xdroid

Just curious if anyone here is working on 0xdroid. I'm trying to download the code as given in the wiki ( but everytime I run "repo sync", at some point, the download just hangs or there is an occasional timeout. I verified the disk space (got 21G free) and tried a few remedies suggested in other forums, but none seem to work. If anyone is working on this, please let me know if you follow any other procedure that whats mentioned (the only two deviations I have are that I am using Java 6 instead of Java 5 and trying to download beagle-eclair instead of beagle-donut).

Have fun,
