    Default Disabled Gallery prior to 4.4.2 update- can't gurn back on.

    Just as the title says, except TURN back on, not gurn. I've used Quickpic exclusively for years on my Android devices, to view and edit or delete photos. I've always disabled the Gallery app since I saw no need to have it taking up resources.

    Fast forward to yesterday when I finally decided to install KitKat on ny Note 2 after declining it for about a month. Normally, when I do major updates to my devices, I turn back on all my disabled apps prior to the update to prevent any conflicts or issues. Unfortunately, I forgot to do this yesterday when I installed the update.

    Now I want to turn Gallery back on to make editing photo names and/or deleting photos easier. When I go to my "Turned Off" apps, this is what I see:



    As you can see, there is no way to turn it back on, everything is grayed out. ALL other apps in my "Turned Off" section have the turn on option. Since it shows version 4.4.2 I'm guessing it updated, but didn't turn itself back on in the process.

    Any ideas how to get it back? I'm guessing a factory reset won't work since the Gallery actually already updated.

    Sorry, should have mentioned I already did that as I always do after a major update, with no luck.

    Are you able to Reset All App Preferences? That should universally reenable all disabled apps.
