Exclamation [SOLVED] Permanent change MAC adress in Sensation

How to do that? ARHD 4.1.11.
Calibration file dodn't work. nvram.txt? Where to put that?
I'v done that before, but lost my notes.

I'm not interested in MAC spoofing. Just want to have custom one.

Hi,

Not sure if this will do it permanatly but it is a fix of a kind.

EDIT: and this should help too..

head into terminal emulation type su and go into /data/misc/wifi
Look for a file called nvram.txt
Copy it to your sdcard and then to your cpu desktop
open it with notepad and at the
bottom of nvram.txt is the mac address
This i was able to verify and test on android Citrus Ciena
Edit that mac address and save it as nvram1.txt onto sdcard
Now go back to data wifi misc and copy nvram.txt to nvram.bak
Head into gui and then settings then wifi then turn on the wifi but don't connect to any wifi
turn off the wifi,switch back to terminal
Copy the nvram1.txt to data misc wifi
remove the original (make sure you got it backed up)
Rename nvram1.txt to nvram.txt
head back into gui and then settings then wifi
Now for me it immediately stated unable to turn on wifi
Ignore it and try to turn it on anyways
When it turns on your newly edited mac address will take effect
Connect to your AP
NOW B4 REBOOTING YOU MUST CHANGE NVRAM BACK TO THE ORIGINAL!

did this and verified a fake mac address with tcpdump-arm
Busybox ip link show eth0
And a router with wpa2 table reflected the new fake mac

Yes. I only had to change to Engineering SPL downloaded from here: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/HTC...port_Downloads before changing MAC.

If you already have Engineering SPL you can skip this step.
