    Is anyone else having issues with USB tethering since the update?

    Until now I've been able to tether my aging MacBook Pro to my OnePlus phones using HoRNDIS' Android drivers without issue.

    However the first time I've tried to use it after updating to 5.1.1 my Mac fails to recognise my OnePlus 5 at all, but it still recognises my original OnePlus 1.

    Anyone else noticed this?

    yes, I am also facing the same issue with 5.1.1 . my laptop is not recognizing my oneplus 5 hotspot. even i am not able to make groups on Xender, can't send/receive any file.

    is there anything we can do about this?

    This worked on my 3t
    go to Settings > About phone > Build number.

    Tap Build number seven times. ...

    Go back to Settings, where you'll find a Developer options in the menu.

    Open developer option scroll down to select USB configuration change to MTP
    Hope this helps

    I hook it up to my Clevo P650 all the time since I keep switching stuff up in Substratum, so far no issue.

    Is that to tether or just charge / USB transfer?

    I can charge & do file transfers, but I'm unable use my phone's 4G data connection via USB.

    Sorry did you read the person notes he is talking about using his phone to provide internet for his Mac and you are talking about sharing files?

    Yes I've lost USB tethering completely. This is a deal breaker for me, it should be fixed IMMEDIATELY.
