I came across this when looking for something else and thought it was interesting so I tried it and it seems to work on my Galaxy s7 but my question is what exactly am I able to do with this now? 😕

Where I work, we have open WiFi and every so often, it won't let me connect. When I change my MAC (Nexus 4), I usually can get back on. I don't know if the connection times out and sort of black lists by MAC or not but it seems to work.

Method for Nextbook Ares 8 (solved)
I finally figured out how to change the MAC on my rooted Nextbook Ares 8, NXA8QC116.
There's a text file, max.txt, in /config/wifi, which contains the MAC address.
Changing this value, and then enabling the wifi adapter results in a new MAC address. This survives a reboot.

The standard methods DON'T work on this device:
busybox ifconfig wlan0 hw ether fa:8e:f0:f2:14:27
busybox ip link set wlan0 fa:8e:f0:f2:14:27

If confused in one part, is Android communicate over cellular network (rmnet) with wlan0 MAC address, because I'm not getting listed any hwaddr on those interfaces in terminal?
Is there any need to change addresses for example bond0, p2p0 interfaces?
