Prompt [Q] Missing System Applications

I have an unlocked, S-OFF HK M8 that I flashed with the Android Revolution ROM - works well, except for one thing- certain stock applications went missing (Visual Voicemail, Wireless Hotspot Application, a few others.)

Before I flashed, I made sure to run a Fullbackup.ab in the hopes that I could restore anything I wanted that went missing - I used Titanium Backup to try and fetch/restore the applications through its Restore ADB backup, but while it acts like it's restoring the applications, it doesn't actually do anything.

My question is - is there a way to retrieve these applications? I've been looking around to see if there's a repository for stock applications and the like, but I just haven't been able to find any. I'm hoping it's as simple as flashing/pushing them through ADB, but I just can't locate the applications to begin with. Any advice?

download stock rom(or any other which has the apps you want) and copy all the apps you want from /system/apps then push them to the same location on your phone on /system/apps
