Again, I have a 1 for write protection (meaning its enabled) and SuperSU basically stuck in System and have no issues running the app, making WiFi hot spots, and having devices connected to it.
Make sure you have root survival set up as well, I'm not sure if the update would remove root without it but I don't think you would want to take that chance.

Thanks for the info. I walked through the root methods and was able to retain is through the upgrades (minus WP). The patch worked and I am now wifi tethering. Thanks for everyone's continued efforts, they are much appreciated!
