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.

Thanks, dude.

Was getting desperate because couldn't read my storage, on Bezke's ROM.

Cheers.
My favourite thread. Essential for SGS2 owners.

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.

I have "persist.sys.storage_preload=1"
