I've looked all around (including searching) and besides a few posts with one or two replies i haven't found much. One post I found on XDA mentioned that "ifconfig" on android is different than standard Linux and to list the adapters you use "netcfg" but that command didn't have the ability to actually change the mac. Is there any alternatives?

When I run "ifconfig rmnet0 ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx I get this error

error: SIOCSIFADDR (Invalid Arguement)


my device is a g1 rooted running cynagoen 4.2.13 with haykuro spl

Looks like there was another thread opened in the nexus forum regarding this but they seem to have gotten to the same point.
