Sign [Q] S5 Failed to enable private mode

Tried to enable private mode on my s5 and it started failing. I was rooted and had posed. Reset the pose settings to stock, still didn't work. Unrooted phone in supersu, and uninstalled all the apps i had that were root apps. Still nothing. Multiple reboots, a battery pull, nothing happening. Can anyone suggest me anything outside of a factory reset.

Restoring a backup from before you had rooted it?

Firmware: Stock ANG9(XEF), Android version 4.4.2
Rooted: Yes
Recovery: PhilZ recovery v6.26.6
Kernel: Stock
Other info: Xposed with lots of cool modules(credits to the creators )

Love this phone more than all the ones I had before COMBINED. If you're not sure wether to buy this phone or not, I recommend you do.

And remember to have a look at this if you are a noob and/or curious what might be behind this link.

You haven't provided any meaningful amount of information in aid of narrowing this down.
Which means that people can only make wild guesses.

What is your Knox status?
What root method did you use?
Did you install Xposed framework or use a custom ROM that includes Xposed?
Did you edit build.prop or use a custom ROM that has modified that file?
Have you frozen any system apps e.g. with Greenify or Titanium?
