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

Yeah that's weird. I had it working yesterday, then I was annoyed by the update too much I reset, install the update, and root again, and now it's not working anymore.

Found this tutorial How to Wifi Tether ANY Rooted Android Smartphone or Tablet! [Universal Guide] | HighOnAndroid.com

The steps are the same with the new version. It works for me.
