    I updated my SM-N9005 to official KitKat, root, CWM recovery.

    I lost the gmail app icon.

    The app itself works. When I receive an email, the gmail app notifies me and in Play Store gmail appears as "installed".

    Please help me to restore the icon.

    I already found the answer:
    The icon is inside the Google container! How obvious! I leave this post online to help any other user who updates to KitKat.

    Gmail is in the Google folder on Android 4.3 as well. If you should lose any icon from one of your screens the easiest way to get it back is to long press on the space where the app icon used to be and from the pop-up menu choose apps then scroll down through the list of installed apps until you find it then replace it.
