Hi everyone!

In my office, the IT has restricted the internet access of unauthorized devices by filtering the MAC address. Sometimes I want to by-pass this security and connect my device to office's network via Wi-Fi.
I have tried some applications on Play Store but they don't meet my need (save profile without having to purchase, see other interface not only wlan...). So I have just written this application to solve my problem, and perhap for your problems too!

Please be noted: This application requires rooted device!
Have feedback, report bugs... please send details to me using the Feedback feature on About screen or reply in this thread .

Upcoming release
  • Change the way to change the MAC (allow user to select the method to use)
  • Scan the network devices: Show the MAC vendor and the hostname of scanned devices.

Current version: 1.6.0
Beta version: --.
Opt-in url: https://play.google.com/apps/testing...id.changemymac

Known issues
- Some devices powered by Spreadtrum, HiSilicon chip-set, and some high-end Samsung devices do not work. I will try to borrow these devices if possible.
- On some Samsung devices (Galaxy Core Prime 4.4), the Wifi might not be turned on after changing MAC using this application.
Solutions:
  • Restore your /efs partition then reboot device.
  • If you forgot to back up /efs partition, please rename the file /efs/wifi/.mac.info (e.g. /efs/wifi/.mac.info1) then reboot device.

Supported devices
Please help me list the device if the application successfully changes the MAC address!

This is the features
- The application scan for active interfaces in your devices, such as eth0, eth1, wlan0... So you can change the MAC address for not only Wi-Fi. This will be helpful if your device does not have Wi-Fi IC.
- You can save the MAC addresses as profile.
- You can see the history on each time you change the MAC address. Also set MAC from history .
- All features of application are totally free. I have just placed a small ads on the bottom of application .
Same application on Play Store requires you to purchase Pro before using some features such as saving MAC...

Not working for me in my Nexus 5 ,OPO and OP2. All Android 6.0
Says Mac has been changed and then I am no longer allowed back on the network. The network is a open home network with no filters. I hope this does work as I have not found anyway to change MACS with the latest Android versions.
Good luck!

I have tested with Sony Xperia Z running XOSP (based on CM) Rom Android 6.0, Xperia S running nAOSP (based on AOSP) Android 5.1.1.
Could you provide me more information such as what is the Rom of your phones, device model? Is it running stock Rom?

Hi,
thank you for the app. The UI is clean and simple. I like it and the app looks promising.

Quick question: Does this work w/ tethering? E.g. is the spoofed mac address broadcasted to the devices connected to my android smartphone?
Currently I am getting >Please enable Wifi for this application< while tethering.

Hi,
When you enable Tethering, the Wireless interface switch to using its own MAC address (02:1A:11:xx:xx:xx) and cannot be grabbed by this application.
At that time the WiFi connection is down. You can check this by going to Settings -> Wifi, the indicator shows Wifi is off.
So the mac is not spoofed if you enable Tethering.
