Hello,

same problem when I tried to download the Eclair.

Can you please let me know the reason for the same. last few lines of

We've never successfully been able to pull down the Donut release from Embinux, same issue as you are seeing. You might want to try the Rowboat project at: http://code.google.com/p/rowboat/

It's currently donut, and appears to be a much more complete port of Android for the Beagleboard.
