That used to be the case, before 4.3/MJA. Now, there is no way to do it, at least not yet.

Can't help there. Maybe ask on the thread I posted above with the hotspot mods. I've not gone to MK2. You can go back to MJA from MK2, AFAIK. You just can't go back any further.

I finally figured out. This is what I ended up doing since I was running MK2. I tried flashing the hotspot mod that when with MK2and it just kept putting me into boot -loop. So I ended up switching my firmware to MJA. Then I flashed the hotspot mod for the MJA firmware. I chose to do all of this with Odexed. I understand that's more difficult to modify but in my perspective it runs a bit smoother than Deodexed. But as I exit out of clockwork recovery mod, it still prompts me on exit with the statement of “Root access possibly lost. Fix?” when it prompts me with this I choose the back option and the phone restarts itself and there is no problems. I want to give a special thanks to iowabowtech and jejb for providing help + links and insight on this issue.
