Default mac address changing, spoofing for i9205 ir i527

Hey guys I tried all the apps in google play ( mac address ghost,mac spoofer and mac changer) to no avail. I get the same problem when I spoof the mac address where wifi wont recognize the password. Anybody have a solution for this? I am running stock rom and am rooted with busybox and supersu and quick terminal installed. A permanent or temporary solution would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!

Anybody knows where I could find the mac address in root explorer? Where is it stored? Thanks guys.



EDIT: I opened root explorer went into efs/wifi and changed the mac address on each file with text editor. The result is different mac address on my network but also shows my old mac address, so now when I connect to my network it shows 2 connections. I blocked my old mac address on my router settings but im still able to connect. Anybody experimenting with this let me know your results.
