[TRICK] Blocked on WiFi Network (root only) (Finished)
Hey guy/gals, I've got a nifty little trick here for you. Now, the trick I'm about to explain is a rather low-level trick that most of you may know, but its for those who don't or are new. So, at the school i attend, they have wifi throughout the school. They make the password something simple like "internet", and then wait for someone to figure it out and tell everyone. Once everyone start joining the network and using it, they just go through and blacklist (ban) the MAC addresses that aren't pre-approved. This was a huge mistake on their part. So here is a method that allows you to spoof your MAC (ghosting) address and regain access to the network.
: Go to the market and download 2 apps, "BusyBox
" and "MAC Spoofer (changer)
". Install BusyBox
and run it to give it SU
permissions. Then run MAC Spoofer
and give it permissions. Turn on your wifi and try to connect to the desired network. If you are blacklisted, it will just loop over and over trying to connect. Don't stop it from looping
. Press the home button and then open MAC Spoofer
. Now, when you run MAC Spoofer
there will be a black box in the center of the screen and it should say ">CHECKING FOR ROOT PERMISSION AND WIFI FILE: OK!
" then on the next line it will show your original MAC address and your current one. In the entry box between the black box and the spoof button, you can enter your desired address and press "Spoof my MAC". It will then say ">ATTEMPTING TO MODIFY MAC ADDRESS:
" and on the next 2 lines it will show your original and current MAC. On the last line it should say "**SUCCESS** MAC OF INTERFACE wlan0 CHANGED TO: (Whatever you chose)
". Now you can exit the app and go back to your wifi network selection. Select the network you were trying to join and it should connect.
I hope this works for you all. If you have any questions or issues, just reply to this thread. Don't forget to give me a thanks!
Note: Your MAC will reset to the original MAC when you turn off your wifi or if your reboot your phone.
Note: I am running ME7 with 4.2.2 JellyBean and stock rom.
