Android SDK Offline Installation

Posted: April 21, 2011 in Android

I think Android SDK Manager is quite awful, since it doesn’t have configuration for proxy authentication. But i found a simple way to download all the SDK components by using direct download link. The trick is on repository.xml which contains url paths to download all SDK components.

Look at every </sdk:url> tag and you’ll found filenames of each component, for example:

<sdk:archive os="linux" arch="any"><sdk:size>45476658</sdk:size><sdk:checksum type="sha1">c054d25c9b4c6251fa49c2f9c54336998679d3fe</sdk:checksum><sdk:url></sdk:url></sdk:archive>

So URL path to download is

One disadvantages by using this way is you’ll be confused the directory structure where each SDK components will be placed. So here’s the directory structure (plus the download link) :









SDK Readme.txt

SDK Manager.exe
