op, this is the final method and I can verify it works. add this to the first post.

in short, native tethering works flawlessly.

Edit: If you want a permanent root than uninstall weaksauce and then flash superSU in recovery.
Not required for tether, but replica is right that people probably want it also
I just got the xposed native method working lol. Is there any other advantage to the s-off and cwm method to make it preferred? The primary reason I want root is for tethering. I did custom roms on my old device, but I don't know if I'll do that on this one or not. I know I could use it to get rid of the bloatware, but the bloatware doesn't seem to be interfering with anything atm so I might wait before doing it if there isn't any other real advantage.

Can you tell me how you did it with xposed? Thanks.

Default Would this work on an One (m7)

I have been holding off on updating to KitKat, because of it killing FoxFi. I would gladly root and use this if it would work.

Confirmed working. However, I used TWRP to flash.

Dunno if it's getting throttled almost immediately, though. First speedtest was 24.16Mbps down, subsequent tests are around 2Mbps or less.

I just flashed Skyfall and the native wifi tether works just fine. No fuss with apps. Love it!

Please hit Thanks if I have assisted you. It goes a long way!

This is what worked for me. Stock 1.12.605.11, stock kernel, weaksauce root, firewater S-Off.
Used EFS File Explorer in Root Mode, Mounted RW. Survives on reboot.
