Me too for network profile, but I enabled USB in settings, as @Loco explained here. - of course with interop unlock, using samwp8tools and regedit-

This is the command: LOCALMACHINE (check DWORD)
Path: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\USB
Key: DisableUSBControlPanel
Value: 0

I've enabled both options, but they don't seem to work on my 820 (yet). Probably why the setting was hidden in the first place... :/

Nokia Lumia 710 with WindowsMania v9 ROM
Nokia Lumia 820 still untouched
Samsung GT-i8750 after Interop
Huawei Ascend W1 and bit of freedom, unlocked bootloader so far

possibly just a complete coincidence but not long after enabling this I started getting issues with the phone charging, in that it wouldn't charge or connect via USB, a reset fixed it and not been an issue since. probably nothing but if more folk find this happening it might be worth while keeping track of it to potentially warn others.

after all, its not as if these settings are super secrete or against the wishes of the networks so the settings are not live for a reason....perhaps that's it.

food for thought
