    If they were working fine before the update then it would be a software glitch.

    Make a backup of your phone using Kies on your PC or MyBackup Pro in the Market and then do a factory data reset. Then restore your phone from your backup.

    It could be possible. Have you tried manually flashing the stock firmware using Odin 1.85 on your PC?

    Are you still under warranty?

    Yes.Odin lets you manually install stock roms provided by Samsung.

    It also lets you flash custom roms (modified firmwares) and kernels that inject root (Android's version of jail breaking). Using Odin is very simple. There is also a Mobile Odin version that will allow you to do everything on your phone without using a PC.

    There is an app in the market called Button Savior. It mimics soft key functions that no longer work.
