Disabled IR blaster on accident, maybe?

Been uninstalling stuff, freezing apps, stopping startup stuff. Well unfortunately my IR blaster stopped working. Had it set up for 2 different TV's. Is there some process that I may have disabled or something that caused this? I'm running Stock Rom Rooted SuperUser. I'm assuming there are quite a bit of things that I have done, but I don't know exactly what I did WHEN it suddenly stopped...

Some other things I have installed are
Xposed:
- XBlast Tools
- MoDaCo Toolkit 27
- SMS Xposed
- Swiftkey Goodness
ROM Toolbox

Other than changing those settings...

Other than these things, everything else has been unmodified, which isn't saying much because lots of options have been changed. I just don't see any option about IR blaster or anything, or even a process or anything....

Any help would be much appreciated :)

Thank you!

Make a nandroid, then unfreeze everything and restart.
If that doesn't work, verify the IR blaster works if you do a clean reinstall of your ROM.

Sounds good to me, I've looked at EVERYTHING else it looks to me. Trying to avoid a wipe, and I guess it just depends on how much I really want that remote, it is nifty :). Thanks for help I'll try it out and report back.

Well me being stubborn, I figured it out. I feel somewhat dumb I guess.

Do NOT disable/freeze "CIRMODULE"
Apparently that is whats linked to the IR, hence, the IR... lol

Wasn't a whole lot on google when I looked for CIRMODULE, but apparently if your not all willy nilly with the freezing of apps/processes you will be alright. :)
