I need K100D firmware v. 1.00 or 1.01

Thank you for reading this thread!
I am trying to get a hold of the 1.00 and 1.01 versions for the K100D.
I have a problem (https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-camera-accessories/25230-k100d-af360fgz-problem.html) with my camera firing the AF360FGZ flashes except for high speed sync.
I tried the flashes on a K10D and they work. I have also tried my camera and another K100D with some other AF360FGZ, and it seems like my camera has a problem (all testing possible because of Ritz Camera, without them knowing it, thanks Ritz!)... The only difference between my K100D and Ritz's K100D was the firmware version - mine has the 1.02, while theirs has the 1.00.
Now I feel that the next step is to try firmware v.1.00 and 1.01, before I start slapping my camera. They are not on the website of course, so please help me find them/send them to me, if you have them!

Thanks!

Do you have a K100D or K100D Super? The K100D Super's latest firmware is 1.00. For the K100D it is 1.02.

I do not think downgrading the firmware of a k100d from 1.02 to 1.00 or 1.01 is possible without some hacking. My speculation is based on what I read about the firmware of k10d (see below).

On the k10d, when people downgrade its firmware from 1.3 to 1.1 in order to use the debug screen, they need to get hold of a hacked version of 1.1. The original version of 1.1 refuses to load as soon as it sees the camera has a higher version (1.3).

Are you sure you weren't testing it with Ritz's K100D Super, which would also account for the difference?

I just came across a link for the older firmwares in another post, but I don't recall exactly where. If I remember I'll post back.
