Hi guys.....here is the way that helped me change my mac address permanently(surviving reboots).I have tried this in Redmi 3s Prime and can confirm that this works.

Note: take a backup of the *.qcn file of your own phone using the qpst tool and have it safe , so that you can restore it if anything goes wrong messing your imei or mac or when you want your original mac address back.

Required Tools can be downloaded either in the miui forum thread(Thanks to the thread creator) mentioned in step 1 or through this GDrive link : https://goo.gl/lrTdMb

So lets get started.

1 ) head over to this thread [ http://en.miui.com/thread-348525-1-1.html ]
and follow all the preparation steps(steps 1-8) including installation of software and configuring the phone in diag mode.

2 )Open qpst tool and StartClient-->SoftwareDownload.
then go to Backup and take a backup

3)Open a copy of the resulting file (*.qcn) in any hex editor and search your phone's mac address as hex.
Eg. : if your mac address is 01:02:03:04:05:06 search it as 010203040506

4)You will get some search results. Now edit every search result with your desired MAC address.

5)And finally restore this edited *.qcn file and reboot your phone once complete.

And that's it. You have successfully spoofed your MAC Address.

Much appreciation for this guide.

It works for me although in my case for step no.3 the diff was when searching for the stock MAC address I had to set txt string not hex. Only then the hex editor could find the proper 4 placements from the backup.

Just in case if anyone else ran into the same search issue with the hex editor.

Did you disable driver signature enforcement in windows before installing all the drivers??
If not Google how to disable and later install the drivers again and try. I had the same kind of problem. And this worked.

Kinda long & risky but I confirm this method works on Redmi Note 4X SD. Even so it's not that practical, means that you can't change MAC Address on fly, every time you have to find a PC to change the MAC address.
