    Default Need to change the iPhone's Mac Address. Help.

    Need to change the iPhone's Mac Address. Is there a file somewhere I can edit? I read that I could use ifconfig, but I dont have access to WiFi for SSH atm.

    How illegal was what you did where you need to change the MAC Address this instant?

    The MAC address is a hardware address and cannot be changed by editing a random file. As far as I know, it is also not legal to change the MAC address. It is possible with hacks, I believe, but I have no idea about changing the iPhone's MAC address.

    yes mac is in hardware but it can be easily overridden in software. google for "mac spoof ifconfig". unfortunately it only works with the macbook pro's wired interface and not wireless. Might work on the iphone's wireless tho. Try and see if you can use ifconfig via ssh. And of course its not illegal to change it, thats just ridiculous to think such a thing.
