    Even though MAC address is
    embedded on the hardware device
    during manufacture, it can still be
    spoofed to input a new one of your
    choice. Here is a detailed instruction
    on how to spoof MAC address on your
    Android phone.
    Before you spoof the MAC address,
    you need to record the original/current
    MAC address of your device which can
    be done according to the instruction
    below:
    On the Home Screen of your phone,
    tap Menu button and go to
    Settings .
    Tap About Device and go to Status
    Now scroll down to record the 12-
    digit code shown under Wi-Fi Mac
    address. An address would read
    something like:
    Example MAC address:
    E5:12:D8:E5:69:97
    Requirements for Spoofing the MAC
    Address
    1. Rooted Android Phone
    2. BusyBox app installed on your
    phone
    3. Once BusyBox is installed, you
    need to install Terminal app
    Once the above requirements are
    satisfied, follow the instructions below
    to spoof your MAC address:
    1. Open the Terminal app and
    type the commands as listed
    below:
    $ su [HIT ENTER]
    $ busybox iplink show eth0
    [HIT ENTER]
    (This will show your current
    MAC address, just for your
    confirmation)
    2. Now, type the following
    command:
    $ busybox ifconfig eth0 hw
    ether XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX [HIT
    ENTER]
    (In the above command, replace
    XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX with your
    new MAC address)
    3. You have now spoofed your
    MAC address successfully. To
    check for the change enter the
    following command again:
    $ busybox iplink show eth0
    [HIT ENTER]
    (Now you should see your new
    MAC address)
