1)To create a gold card follow this: http://www.nazriawang.com/2010/04/how-to-create-goldcard-with-ubuntu.html . You don't need your phone to make a gold card, since it is unique by card and not by phone. In conclusion no one could send you the .img file that will work with your SD card. You need to make it.

2)After making the card, try and extract the PB99IMG from the latest RUU WWE 2.29.405.5 and put it in the root of SD. Here it is how: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=880268 (2nd post). After this go to hboot (Vol Down + Power) and the hboot should load the RUU and bring you to stock.

Hope this helps.
