Currently Being ModeratedMar 29, 2011 11:57 AM (in response to kingwow3)I somehow missed this post when I searched, and then created my own. I'm having the exact same problem. Using iPhone 4 with MBP 15" 2.3 quad core i7.
Only causes Kernel Panics when connected via USB. Wifi and bluetooth are fine.
Replaced RAM, clean installed OS X, reset PRAM and SMC. I've done it all, still crashes.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 29, 2011 5:14 PM (in response to kingwow3)FWIW, I called Applecare and spoke w/ the basic MBP tech support/customer service rep. He had no knowledge of the issue, and no fix beyond what most of us have done/figured out already. He did say that the issue would likely be captured/escalated if numerous complaints were made about the same issue, so call in if you have a few spare minutes.MacBook Pro 15" 2.3 Ghz Quad Core i7, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

Currently Being ModeratedMar 29, 2011 7:30 PM (in response to kingwow3)I had provided a feedback to Apple Care that their people must be aware of postings in this Forum and in any forums worldwide - otherwise how would Apple be in the front-line of knowing what went wrong with their hardwares and softwares.
When I called Apple Care, I am surprised how little they know about this crash problem!
BTW we can use Bluetooth or Wifi for tethering but I noticed that some callers couldn't get through...the line seems to be unavailable to callers.
Anyone with this problem of missed calls?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7), 13"
Currently Being ModeratedMar 29, 2011 8:45 PM (in response to kingwow3)Boot and run in 32 bits. It solves the problem (To do so, hold both 3 2 keys while you boot).Macbook Pro 2011, Mac OS X (10.6.7), 4Gb 13"
Currently Being ModeratedMar 29, 2011 11:15 PM (in response to aronallen)Yes deleting the iPhone from the networks pane will keep the kernel panic from happening but if you turn off the hot spot then you do not have to delete the iPhone out of the networking pane. Remember this will happen every time tethering/hot spot is turned on and there are internet app running, whether you are using it or not. This means mail, itunes and possible even calendar, only if syncing with mobile me, but there is not that much data transferring so it would be while for calendar or idisk to crash the computer.MBP 2.7 i7 (Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.6.6), MBA 1.83,iPad 1,3 iPhone3G's,2 iPhone4's,ATV,TC & APE
Currently Being ModeratedMar 29, 2011 11:19 PM (in response to Philip_Chan)I never had a problem of missing calls while tethering. Either, USB, Wi-Fi or bluetooth, just can use an earpiece.MBP 2.7 i7 (Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.6.6), MBA 1.83,iPad 1,3 iPhone3G's,2 iPhone4's,ATV,TC & APE

Currently Being ModeratedMar 30, 2011 4:35 AM (in response to Philip_Chan)Thanks for doing this!
I have had this problem for 2 weeks but had not discovered this thread. I called Apple Care numerous times without much help (clearing memory, test under different user, reinstall OS, if nothing works go to Apple store and get replacement). I spent all day monday going to the Apple store to be told that the problem is solved by 10.6.7.
Today I finally got some sense out of Apple CARE! So thanks I owe you for that.
They now admit I need to run in 32 bit for problem not to occur. They have asked me to test it and I have managed to run it for several hours with no problems. They now say they are seeing if the iPhone development team can come up with a solution.Macbook Pro 15" (2011), Mac OS X (10.6.7)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 31, 2011 6:21 AM (in response to kingwow3)For everyone having trouble with mac book pro crashing while tethering .. HERE IS THE SOLUTION
Its not great but all you have to do is convert to 32 bit!
Its that simple! As you start your machine, hold down the '3' and '2' together at the same time until your machine boots up and is ready. Thats it! It doen't look any different nor does the machine run any differently.
I have had countless crashes with the so called grey wall error while tethering using my usb cable into both an iphone 3 & 4 and since converting to 32 bit each time I start my machine ... no crashes what so ever! ITS EASY, PAINLESS and now i swear a lot less.Mac Book Pro 2011
Currently Being ModeratedMar 31, 2011 7:11 AM (in response to marx02)Yep. My own tethering has been rock solid since converting my Macbook and iMac to boot in 32-bit kernel mode.iMac 11.3 i7 12 GB; MacBook Pro 6.2, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

IMHO, that is not a solution. That is a 'workaround' to avoid seeing the problem while eliminating capabilities that some 64bit users need. To really be a "solution" it has to fix what's broken in 64 bit mode, not avoid 64 bit mode. When there's really a solution we won't need this discussion topic anymore except to say 'it's fixed in the latest software update'.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 31, 2011 9:30 PM (in response to macimby)Completely agree. Well said.
And is anyone else annoyed that the "32 bit workaround" has been proposed about 20 times now???

Currently Being ModeratedApr 1, 2011 8:26 AM (in response to macimby)AGREED. Anyone that views switching to 32-bit mode as a "solution" is simply wrong. It is clearly a workaround. We need a solution from Apple. They obviously need to patch these drivers, and it would sure be nice if they'd consider doing so soon.MBP
