[REQUEST] SCH-I800 stock bootloader (boot.bin and sbl.bin)

Searched all over and the problem is that any links applicable to this request are no longer active. So, here's a request hoping that maybe someone will have these files handy and can help me and maybe others in the same/similar situation(s).

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab (SCH-I800) from Verizon (CMDA, I believe). I'm looking for a stock boot.bin and stock sbl.bin to fix a bootloader problem.

Basically, before I realized that there were so many versions of this tablet... I ended up flashing the bootloader from a non-SCH-I800 rom. Download mode works. It does boot and charge. The bootloader logo works briefly before the screen is blank. I had tried flashing a ClockworkMod recovery and could sort of make out the logo loading when trying to get into recovery (hold Power + Volume Up), but the fuzz/snow/whatever made it super pixelated. Following that, the screen turns black but with an obvious backlight - the same as loading without going into (or attempting to go into) recovery.

I can flash things via Heimdall and have my original .pit file. The problem is that all the custom roms either require flashing via ClockworkMod (CWM), which I can't access, or doesn't have the bootloader files included. These files seem to be lurking around here for other models of the GT, but for SCH-I800 there seem to be none.

Anyway, I know there are several threads floating around on the same topic and the same device. Seeing as how files are largely unavailable from links posted here (but I really can't find the stock boot.bin and sbl.bin anywhere), I'm creating a new thread to bring attention to it and requesting that if anyone has these files they attach and/or upload somewhere. Thanks in advance!

Try flashing galaxy cubed. It does not need cwm to be flashed. Just uses heimdall.

I actually tried this already. The problem was that the bootloader was changed to the wrong hardware version (Sprint, I think?). The items included in Galaxy Cubed don't include a boot.bin file. So flashing this rom works, but doesn't fix the problem - effectively a soft brick without the correct bootloader.
