    hello I just rooted to use wifi tether. In order to set it up I had to change the device profile name to Samsung galaxy s4 in order for my laptop to read IP address. just wanted to share just incase someone got stuck on wifi tether...I just had to change device profile name to Samsung galaxy s4 in order to work...kinda weird idk why it didn't work if i chose device profile name Samsung galaxy s3..

    I tried that ,but it didn't work for me. I have the latest version. What do you have on setup method? I have auto. Also do you have MMS clamping and routing fix enabled?

    I had that come up once but that was because I had two different tether apps running at the same time

    The trick is to enable the reset wi-fi driver 2(need su) option. Then s3 profile works flawlessly
