Exclamation Missing Stock Camera

So last night i decided to do the upgrade to Gingerbread, after sitting at 26% for hours, i rebooted the phone.

When it restarted, i got a little icon ---!---

I was able to get the phone back into download mode and did an emergency firware restore.

After about 6 hours, it was comeplete but now there are some problems.
The first was google search was gone, this was not a problem to install, but now the stock camera is gone.
The car home does not work either

as well there are three program icons that do nothing.
they rae just little green android icons

com.android.app.unifiedinbox
com.sec.android.app.camera
com.sec.android.app.calender

My phone is not rooted.
Does anyone know how to get the camera back?

Get a rom (custom or otherwise, doesn't matter) and move the .apk to /system/apps and install it. Bingo Camera App :P

If you can find the .apk it should install, but I am not sure... Try other camera options on the market too, they usually are better.

If you haven't already fixed your camera issue you can try the one at XDA developers.
