Samsung - 4.2.2 WIFI tethering workaround?

AT&T Galaxy Note I717 General - xda-developers - forum.xda-developers.com
I love the CM 10.1 build of 4.2.2. It is my dream phone right now. The problem is that no WIFI tethering works on it as of yet. If anyone has anything working I'd love to be proven wrong. This is a show-stopper for me. I can't use bluetooth because my laptop doesn't have bluetooth.

I tried every tethering app out there. Barnacle was the best in that it reported the errors it was seeing instead of just refusing to work.

Anyway, I am thinking of working around the problem by keeping a ROM stored as a TWRP backup that I can restore when I need tethering. I don't need tethering on a moment's notice.

I would like the tethering ROM as slim as possible. I haven't tried any yet. Would a restore be any faster with a slim ROM?

Can someone suggest what ROM I should use that has a small footprint and can restore quickly? I'm thinking that I won't have any apps and no account logged in. If I'm tethering I will be using the other device for email etc. And I'm sure the phone will work no matter what I'm running.

Can anyone suggest a better workaround than this?
