Hi everyone,
I have just rooted my mi9 and wanted to use apk changeMacAddress to be able to connect in my man to a tv network (in fact it's related to my old smartphone with his Mac address) but I can't change it.

How can I do this?
Thanks

I find folder containing mac address but i didnt succeed to update the mac address, its located on /data/vendor/mac_addr/wlan_mac.bin
in fact after a reboot the original mac address is reset to the factory one.
How can i force to use the updated mac address ?
which daemon update those file ?

thanks for your help
PS : i updated to the latest TWRP from [RECOVERY][MI9] TWRP 3.3.1-7 by siankatabg to decrypt the folders and scan the FS.

Sorry for reviving old thread, just in case anybody interested in solution, leave alone /data/vendor/mac_addr/wlan_mac.bin and create /mnt/vendor/persist/wlan_mac.bin (or wherever persist is mounted) with a line wlan0=(desired mac address) and reboot. (At least should work with xiaomi devices)
