Android Repo Tool Error

Recently the kernel.org and its sub domain sites are down, due to the security breach. So when you run Android Repo tool, it will check for the latest updates in that site. As the site is down, repo will fail to fetch the source and throw the following error “Unable to resolve the android.git.kernel.org”

By using the backup copy for the repo_tool from github.com, you can overcome this issue. Edit your repo python script like this:
#REPO_URL=’git://android.git.kernel.org/tools/repo.git’
REPO_URL=’git://github.com/android/tools_repo.git’

New Android Repo: http://source.android.com/source/downloading.html
