Default [Q] hardware decoder no longer works


I was playing with various kernels and ROMs. All went fine, however one thing stopped working and I couldn't trace which action of mine broke this.
So, h/w and h/w+ decoders no longer work for me in MX player. I have also tried a few other players but they simply show distorted picture. I've got MX player 1.7.26 and correct decoders installed i.e. ARMv7NEO.

I know there's an answer to "wipe all and reinstall" but I want to see if there's any better solutions.

I'v got latest Echoe ROM which runs Android 4.4.2. I'm also on stock kernel now. I've tried reloading my ROM w/o wipe but that didn't help.

my phone is international 9005
