Fedora 31. I am successfully connected to Internet through mobile broadband, and I've created a hotspot over wifi and connected from (Android) phone to that. However I can't reach Internet from the phone.

I have added both interfaces to the trusted zone (there seems to be a common problem with F32 that's fixed by this), and also tried firewall-cmd --zone=trusted --add-masquerade, to no avail. I am not sure what should be the correct value of net.ipv4.ip_forward (tried both options without success). I've also temporarily disabled SELinux just in case.

Could you hint me what could be preventing me from relaying it correctly?

I've seen suggestions to use hostapd etc. but I guess it should be doable through NetworkManager, I have probably just something tweaked the wrong way.
