Looking for the app (or files) for GMail on my Blackberry Storm. Yes, Storm and yes Storm (original not Storm 2). Google no longer supports this and will not allow me to download the app.

Last night when I went to bed, I had a perfectly working Blackberry Storm. While that is not saying a lot, it was a small comfort to me. When I awoke this morning, I had the dreaded "JVM Error 545".
I spent the morning wiping my device, reinstalling the OS and trying to recreate what I had. I was able to find a download for the Google Voice app by changing my internet settings to "Firefox". The only application and only thing I cannot get back is the GMail app.
Yes, I can and do get my email through IMAP and the native Blackberry email software. I want to be able to access the app as well. I want to be able to see my various tags (folders), be able to see my starred items, etc. I want my GMail!! The only option for me for now is going to a browser and using that. Remember folks, I am using a Blackberry Storm. No wifi. The browser is really not a viable option.
I have searched for it online. I cannot find it. It could be because I am not using the correct search terms. I have checked the Crackberry forums, but again, I am so old I am using a Storm and I could be screwing up the search terms there too.
Does anyone know where and how I can download the app to my Storm 9530 and get around Google's lack of support?
