      Dear, download the official stock firmware from here: http://goo.gl/c8IEW

      and use this guide to install it: http://goo.gl/iP4v5
      this guide is for Galaxy S, but you can use it to install any stock firmware on Galaxy S Plus too, you just need to download Galaxy S plus firmware as I’m giving you the download link.

      camera has been fixed and developer has also provided the Gapps, install the latest version of ROM and Gapps to get rid of these problems, to install newer version of ROM, put both zip files to the SD card of device, reboot into recovery, don’t wipe anything, just install both zip files one by one, however backup is recommended, post has been updated for latest versions….
