After recently enabling Internet Tethering and updating my iPhone 3GS to 4.3, I began to experience the frightening “Kernel Panic” error which is the Mac OS equivalent of a Windows BSOD. I know nothing about Kernel Panics so I look it up which brought me to a discussion thread on the Apple Website.
Apple has recently released an update to Snow Leopard which is the 10.6.7, reading the description however doesn’t any mention of this issue.
“includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac, including fixes that: Improve the reliability of Back to My Mac; Resolve an issue when transferring files to certain SMB servers; [and] Address various minor Mac App Store bugs.”
Mac OS X v10.6.7 Update for early 2011 MacBook Pro

I’ve resorted to reinstalling Mac OSX and applying this update. I’m in no rush to use Personal Hotspot at this stage. Unless they address this issue and actually fix it.
