Usually the package is removed because it no longer builds or passes it's checks, and the author is no longer able to update / willing to maintain it; sometimes a package is removed for other reasons, e.g., the author is no longer able / willing to distributed it under an appropriate license. Either way, the package is unlikely to be suitable to your needs.

Nonetheless, you can download the source tar ball from the last known good installation (follow the link on the removed packages page, download the '.tar.gz' file at the bottom of the page, install it from withing R as install.packages("geneR_2.24.0.tar.gz", repos=NULL, type="source"). You don't include your sessionInfo() in your original question; if you are on Windows, you'll need 'Rtools'. You'll also need to manually install any dependencies. And in the end there is a high probability that the software will not work and cannot easily be fixed (else it would still be in Bioconductor). A more extreme approach to create the R installation that the last-known-good package ran under -- R-2.15, Bioconductor 2.10 -- and use biocLite() as normal.
