Default issue with hidden apps after updating to 4.4.2 KitKat

since all the other threads about this issue are unanswered I want to give it another shot.

my problem is that before I upgraded my GS4 to Android 4.4.2 KitKat I had the possibility to hide or unhide apps from the app drawer. But unfortunately Google removed this feature in 4.4.2 BUT the apps that I hided are still hidden but are installed and they all just work fine. But it is driving me insane not being able to put them back on the app drawer, as it seems to me that Google forgot to implement unhiding apps that were already hidden. Is there a solution to this strange issue?

thanks in advance. - f.

Easiest thing that pops to mind is a factory reset, but then not everyone wants to do that. Its best to do it anyway after a major upgrade like this.
