Default [Q] Galaxy Tab 2 i705 VRBMI1 bootloader unlock

Is there any way to unlock the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 on the VRBMI1 firmware. I used goehots rooting tool. But can't find and way to install a custom recovery. Or even safestrap. I tried a few of the tutorials given on this website and bricked 3 tab 2 7.0. Did the devs give up on this tab already? Or what. I love this tab and would hate selling it.
