How To Change MAC Address easily on any MTK device [Educational Purpose Only]

How To Change MAC Address easily on any MTK device 

Hey TDs readers, today I'm gonna show you how to change mac addresses in MediaTek (MTK) devices easily.

Most of the Devices Like Coolpad, Micromax and some other AOSP devices  are based on MTK.

For your information, apps from playstore or anywhere like device id changer, device emulator and so on…cannot change the mac address exactly at least not of MTK device.
They will show that MAC address is changed and in settings also but secret is its not changed at all.
(To confirm,you can check in your wifi router)
So, to really change your MTK MAC Adress you are gonna need-
1. Root[your phone must be rooted] if not click here to know how to root your phone
3. Any root explorer (I have used ES File Explorer)


open root explorer and go to /data/nvram/APCFG/APRDEB 
(Here APCFG and APRDEB can be different in yours but will be similar)
You will see a file “WIFI“Copy that file somewhere in your sd card.
Now open it with hex editor and check the first 2 lines. you should see something similar to the below mac address  in the first two lines- 1e 4c 39 c3 37 73 – This is mac address.
This will be different in yours. So to change it we have to generate another accurate MAC address pointing to another device which we can get by Clicking here to generate random MAC Address. After Generating one just write it down on a sheet of paper and edit the one on your SD card to that of the one generated. Once that has been done, save it and replace it with the one in /data/nvram/APCFG/APRDEB – from where you copied earlier.
Now switch off and switch on your wifi. Gbam! your wifi mac address has been changed now.
(To confirm, you can check your wifi router)
Note:- Whenever you  reboot your device, your phone wifi mac address will automatically change to the default address.
