How to install Android SDK without internet connection


I searched all over the internet and found no posts like this, hence I'm making one hoping it would be helpful for a lot of people.

The magic URL used to be - http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml (Outdated)
That is the XML file from which the URL for downloading the SDK packages are obtained.

Update :- The previous URL is now invalid, the new URL is given below
https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository-5.xml (Outdated)

Update 2:- The URL has changed again, thanks to the post readers
https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository-7.xml

Update 3 :- New URL
https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository-8.xml

For e.g. if you want to download Android SDK for version 4.0.3 for all platforms, you could look up that XML file. You will find a block under tag SDK 4.0.3 like this

<sdk:archive arch="any" os="any">

<sdk:size>44758833</sdk:size>
<sdk:checksum type="sha1">f2aa75133c29916b0b0b984974c2d5e46cb09e9c</sdk:checksum>
<sdk:url>android-15_r01.zip</sdk:url>
</sdk:archive>



So the URL will be is http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/android-15_r01.zip
