It isn't really that different at all, it has always been under Network>USB utilities or something under GB. It's just that most of us used the pull-down notification.

Cheers.

OR, if you hate going through the menus everytime, you can do like I did and enable the USB mass storage by default (instead of that MTP which doesn't work on Mac OS).

Solution A - put this in your init script (if you have a kernel which supports init scripts, currently only CF-Root works on ICS).

Code:
setprop persist.sys.usb.config "mass_storage,adb"
Solution B - add/change the same settings in build.prop (you probably have now "persist.sys.usb.config=mtp,adb".

Code:
persist.sys.usb.config=mass_storage,adb
And reboot. When you connect your cable, it will default to USB mass storage mode just like it did on Gingerbread.

Solution C: JKay or any other ROM maker, add a button to the Message bar.
