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.

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!

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.
