I think your best bet would be the galaxy ace forums. You could search if there's an existing kernel with this functionality or else you could direct one of the kernel developers there to have a look at this thread.

Hello experts,

since a long time I'm trying to fix my mutating MAC on a Huawei U8860 (so called Honor).
Your Thread gives me new hope. Atm I'm running a custom rom (baidu v.5, ROM 43) on my device.
Do you think, it's possible to insert the phrase into the kernel-source to make the MAC fix again? The wlan-chip is nearly the same as in your tested device (bcm4329).
What else do I have to patch? Is it necessary to write the MAC (seen on the label under battery) into any config-file?
I apprecheate your help - thanx for reading...

Works on Samsung S4 mini with CM 11, however I need to reboot after changing .mac.cob even when deleting .mac.info (which does not automaticly returns), as turning off/on WiFi isn't enough.
I guess the READ_MACADDR option is missing, and at one point I'd like to make my own CM modification. Or is there a more simple solution?

Hi,

Just over a year ago, I asked you a solution for my Galaxy S2, and you found me a solution thanks to this post on the Galaxy S2 forum.
Is there a similar kernel for Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 ?
