Default Sound Recorder

On my Nexus 4, there is stock app called "Sound Recorder" that I used to be able to enable/disable from app settings. There is no uninstall option. When enabled, it would add an icon to the app drawer and when disabled the icon would go away. Recently I tried enabling it and the icon did not show up in the app drawer. I've tried doing this several times and restarting as well. I'm rooted on stock 4.4.2. I'd like to get this app enabled again w/an icon. Anyone have any thoughts.

Try rebooting after you enable it.

Ok... you're stock rooted. Try reinstalling the app.

I believe its a system app so I'm not sure how to reinstall it. I couldn't find it on Google Play.

Would a dirty flash help? Maybe?
