    Update surprise!
    Added /data/misc/wifi/hostapd.conf method for users like me in the 4.4.2 kitkat and the old methods aren't working.
    I think that method is the most requested over time and i didn't had any phone like that... but, now it works at it should.

    Any feedback on this would be appreciated.

    Sadly didnt work on my Nexus 5 (custom rom CM 13, Android 6 - Marshmallow)
    Thought the added hostapd.conf would work..
    No method seems to work for me.
    Still: thank you for your contributions and your hard work.
    Its pretty much appreciated.
    Kind regards :)

    Hello, there are many hostapd.conf paths, if yours is not the same, i can try to edit your path as well.

    King regards.

    Thank you for your answer. Actually my path is already handled by your tool, however, when I start tethering, the mac changes again and the hostap.conf seems to be obsolete or overwritten.Already tried configuring it manually. ..kind regards

    After using your app, my wifi on my LG G3 no longer works and does not even start. Is there a fix?

    Is there a AndroidPass-log on the sd card or internal memory root?

    Make sure is cycling the mac.

    I'm gonna make some changes when i get time to reorder the hostapd method.

    A BIG thank you for still working on this project!
    Most information I dug up was from 2013, which is of course outdated.

    Sadly, I couldn't get it to work.
    I tried it on my Note 3, but whenever the app would switch macs (automatically or manually) the grey bar would not turn yellow.
    Also when pressing stop the app just froze with the stop bar turned yellow.

    So I tried my old Galaxy S3 LTE (I9005 or so) and it actually worked there.
    The macs were cycling and for every new adress I could see 3 connected devices (3ds, 3ds XL and new3dsxl)
    Yet, no street passes.
    I had my router off, so there was no wireless network for the DS's to connect with, yet they showed internet connection on the homescreen.
    I did not try opening the browser, as all my devices cry for an update which I can't do atm.

    Riilay did not work because the mac data is somewhere in an efs folder, which riilay doesn't offer.
    Your app does :)

    Anything I am missing?
    SSID attwifi, open,...
    Both phones are on like android 6.0, custom roms etc.
    Cycling worked seemlessly on my S3, and I can't think of what might cause the problem.

    Any help? :)

    The first thing you need to do, is ensure that the mac is changing.
    If the app is crashing, its probably that a log file is located on the root of the internal sd memory, or in the sd card.

    I could debug it easier.

    Regards.

    So i used this app with my android tablet, didnt work and got uninstalled but left my device with no wifi, no way to turn it on .

    Did a factory reset, flashed stock firmware and still no results.

    Is there a way to fix that ?

    If the method used it the hostapd, just restore the file that was backed up by the app on the same directory.
    If is other method, tell me, and i'll figure it out.

    Thanks, i fixed the problem editing my /efs/wifi/.mac.info file , i know my device can change macs but i cant get this to work.

    While thetering i changed my wifi hotspot name to "attwifi" and security to open , i already set my 3ds with those settings and it connects but fails while doing the internet connection test

    Thanks for this app, I've been using it to change MACs on my Nexus 5, first with CM12.1 and now CM13 after updating (both hammerheadcaf). My experience has been similar on both versions. The only practical difference is that I had to install busybox on CM13 as it comes with the stripped down toybox. I used this installer as it seems to add only the missing functions while leaving the toybox ones alone. Here's how it's gone:
    • (AndroidPass 2.48; network:attwifi, security:none)
    • It defaults to /data/misc/wifi/hostapd.conf which is a file that exists on my phone but I don't get any streetpasses that way. The working methods for me have been busybox->ifconfig and busybox-> lazypop.
    • Pressing Start turns off the wifi connection to my router but doesn't turn on tethering. It only works if I enable the hotspot manually before pressing the button (I just use the Quick Settings tile).
    • The number of connected clients is correctly shown and streetpasses normally come through within a couple of minutes.
    • It's unable to switch from one IP to the next. Pressing Next stops the timer bar at its current position, letting it fill up has it stick at one step from the end. With the "wait timeout" feature even after all devices disconnect the bar just keeps going up.
    • Pressing STOP freezes the app (with the button still highlighted) and eventually an "AndroidPass isn't responding" message pops up. I normally swipe it away from recent apps to close it (but press STOP first, otherwise the notification that AndroidPass is running in the background sticks around).
    • When opening the app after this the previously used IP is still selected, so I manually change it to the next one in the list and it's ready to be activated again.
    Hopefully that info is helpful to someone.

    I have similar experiences to doopl. Following his tips, here's how I've managed to make the app work on my phone:

    Open Android Pass, and set the first MAC I want to start at. Open quick settings in my phone and enable tether. Let AP's progress bar go about halfway, it will show one client connected, and then the streetpass led will come on just before the app says zero clients connected.

    At this point, the app seems to do nothing. It doesn't cycle to the next MAC, even with custom delay set to a low value, and wait timeout set to no. Clicking next doesn't seem to work. Clicking stop freezes the app.

    In order to go to the next MAC and continue streetpassing, I have to open quick settings, disable tether, and then re-enable tether. When I do this, AndroidPass cycles to the next MAC, and will continue trying to streetpass. If it works or doesn't work, I disable tether, then re-enable it, and keep doing this until I'm satisfied.

    Basically, I just start AndroidPass, then I just keep manually enabling/disabling my tether in order to make the app work. It's kinda tedious, and the app seems a little fickle, but I've found a nice rhythm that works, and honestly I can't complain since this is the only solution that works for me on Android.
