The original URLs have long since been taken down, but consisted of two
complate snapshots of a work-in-progress git tree. A total of 1.3GB,
and that will take some time to re-upload somewhere.

IIRC for Android of that vintage you need no newer than JDK8.

In all seriousness, the android port is easily the most complicated mess
of anything rockbox has ever been ported to, and if you don't have
experience with (old?) android development, it's going to be a very
steep learning curve.

(And that is why the port has languished)
