Nokia N9 Wi-Fi Hotspot fix

The Wi-Fi Hotspot app on my Nokia N9 doesn't work on AT&T.  To fix, follow these instructions from the maemo.org forum:
2. start Terminal
3. type the following
Code:
devel-su
echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/wl1271/allow_adhoc
it will prompt for a password after the first command, the password is "rootme"
Then start the Wi-Fi Hotspot app.  Solved!

Sorry, I don't know much more about it. The operators in the US want to block tethering unless you pay extra. The hack is from a nice contributor on the maemo.org forum. There's no guarantee that it works, but hopefully it works for most people. It works for me on AT&T.
