    I can turn on personal hotspot through the wi-fi or bluetooth option and works fine, but I want my connection to work through USB.
    I don't see the 'iPhone' option in the network preferences page on my mac when I connect my phone to my mac. In network preferences, it only shows 'wi-fi', 'firewire' and 'ethernet'.
    Any tips to fix this?

    Oh sorry.
    After lots of digging, found the solution. Didn't post because I didn't think many would still be in my situation.
    This issue will only be of significance for users on iTunes 10.7 (best version of itunes ;)).
    The Apple discussion thread below contains the resolution, found on page 2. Involves downloading a previous kext file version and kext file utility. Works flawlessly now.
