    This question is probably a day late and a dollar short, but can I make my Elite a Wifi hotspot now that it is rooted and has CMW installed? Lamen terms please.

    Yes. Built in tethering doesn't work; use an app like "Wifi Tether."

    Is there any specific app I can use without giving me an Error 67?

    If you are rooted, try using the app Wifi Tether For Root Users from the Play Store, and you should be just fine. If you still get Error 67s then, let us know.

    I am rooted and have CMW installed. If it Error 67's, will my data come back? Because before I rooted, I tried an app and I had to factory reset my phone, which sucked.

    Change the setup method to WEXT (ad-hoc) and you won't get error 67.

    In my experience, if you're running the ZV5 firmware, then error 67 should only be temporary and at most you might have to reboot to get data back.

    Just don't use tethering features from widgets and apps like Quick Settings or Power Controls (apps which have a hotspot/AP toggle feature). You might want to avoid FoxFi WiFi tethering too (I once got an temporary error 67 from that), but the FoxFi bluetooth tethering feature (used with the PdaNet Tablet app to provide 3G to a tablet) works fine in most cases.

    Note - IIRC, you will not be able to tether things such as a PS3 or Blackberry, they do not support ad-hoc connections

    I've had success tethering a laptop and a netbook using both the WiFi Tether for Root Users and Barnicle WiFi Tether apps on the Elite.

    You might want to try searching the forum next time, this question has been asked and answered many times.

    Good luck!
