    This isn't working on my Galaxy S3 Mini (I8190L). Either it shuts down my phone, or it "starts with error" and my 3DS can't even find it. x_x The Log sometimes even states it failed to set the MAC address...

    have you tried changing the profile to Samsung Galaxy S3 (item 2)?

    try playing around the settings to see if you could make it work. Else if, this is not the method for you.

    A search for a mac file on my S2 yielded "/data/.mac.info" can you add this please?

    Great app! Can you add feature to use custom MAC-address list? From text file or from URL.
    Thank you!

    Hello, ive been using the app some time right now, and on galaxy mini with the correct method on data/mac.info thing the MAC not changes and the 3ds ignores the new access point. It would be grat if you put some cooldown option for the 3ds can detect "No nzone" and try to search again.

    Thanks,

    Further testing, great app, but it keeps putting the default mac on my galaxy mini.
    Tryed to use BusyBox, but it seems the app keeps telling me tu use the /data/ method.
    NOT WORKING
    Can I suggest to make the File r--r--r-- (Read Only for all), and will be working ;)

    This app is great!! Thank you.
    The method I use to change the MAC is /data/etc/wifi/fw
    This fw is a document with just my mac address in it.
    (Xperia S, JB)

    Can you add it, please?

    So to get this working on some devices here's what to do. You will need a mobile device with its own data connection (Eg. 3G or 4G).

    1. Root your android mobile device (I used a HTC One). Search google for tutorials on how to Root your device.
    2. After or during the rooting process, install BusyBox (again, do a search to research this).
    3. Install the Riilay App found in the first post to your mobile device
    4. Set up a WiFi Hotspot on your device using the SSID: attwifi and no security (so no password). This will mean that anyone will be able to access your phone's data connection, so be careful.
    5. Open your 3DS and set up an internet connection with the new attwifi hotspot you've created. (This may not be necessary)
    6. Return your 3DS to the menu and close the screen.
    7. Open the Riilay app. It should recommend which method to use. For me it was the Busybox method. This will vary per device.
    8. Set a cool-down period on the app (set it above 1 min at least, 5mins works best for me I've found).
    9. Start the Riilay App. It should then change the MAC address of the device and the 3DS should connect.
    10. Wait a few minutes for you first streetpass hit! After the set cooldown period, the app should cycle through to the next address, and the next streetpass hit.
    NOTE: you can only street pass each MAC address once every 8 hours.

    If this method does not work for you, I can't help. Others may be able to.
    I have found after a while, my phone may close the app or turn off the wifi hotspot (meaning I only get about 4 streetpasses before I need to restart everything). This is proably just the settings or app killer app i have installed on my phone.

    ALSO: I went to a 3DS meet-up the other day and had my phone in my pocket with WiFi hotspot turned OFF. Other people's 3DS systems started to download updates, quickly draining my phones data allowance. I had to change the WiFi hotspot name to something else to get it to stop :wtf:

    I've made a test with my galaxy S3 mini using the busybox method, it does change the MAC address, but after changing it the hotspot doesn't connect anymore even though it continues to appear on the wifi on 3DS..

    I did change the mac address manually by commands on busybox and the same thing happens :(

    Well looking on the internet it seems the only way to change the mac on a S3 is changing the phone rom..

    I use my old Galaxy S1 with Darky Rom, Wifi Theter App works and I can StreetPass successfully, but with Riilay, I don't even get one.

    Wanted to report three glitches when using a Note II, rooted and with stock tether "unlocked", but no custom rom:

    *The only method that will work is "busybox method", which is fine. One of the other settings (/factory) does APPEAR to work, but it doesn't.
    *The first time Riilay is activated, it works perfectly! However, when it attempts to cycle the mac address, it does SOMETHING in a manner the phone doesn't appreciate, and the access point doesn't setup correctly. This is reflected in the cell phone showing "hotspot active", but the 3DS being unable to connect to the hotspot (it detects the SSID, just can't connect to it, erroring out instantly). It can be fixed by manually shutting down the hotspot and turning it back on. Perhaps it's an issue of needing to delay the re-opening process?
    *Riilay doesn't work once the phone goes into standby (AKA the screen turns off)

    just a note, in jelly bean 4.1.2 they changed the nvram.txt to nvram_net.txt in /system/etc/wifi/
    adding this to the app should make most galaxy phones works.

    Shin, I use a Galaxy S3 Mini that shares Android 4.1.2, and while I do have a "nvram_net.txt" file in the directory in question (/system/etc/wifi/), it isn't like my old phone where nvram.txt was nothing but a MAC address: this file is huge and contains a lot of data.

    Sure, there was a "macaddr=00:09:...." on it (in fact, such address appeared twice along the file). Not only changing it didn't work, but also there's a catch: that is NOT the MAC address I obtain when I press *#232338#, which is something to the lines of 88:9B:....

    Mind sharing more info on how you're getting this to work? My old phone can only run in 2G, so if I could get it to work on my new phone (that has 3G), it would make things much easier on me, even if Riilay doesn't support it yet.

    To all the people complaining about the methods that are not the busybox.
    The file is set to chmod 777, and when the android trys to power on the Wifi Point, it resets to the default MAC is given.

    If the creator sees this, would know that chmoding the file to 444 on edit and when changing put it back to 777 if he wants, it would be fixed.

    Also, give some time to update... It takes time.

    Having trouble with my HTC one, got the 3ds to connect to the hot spot, the light flashes as if its transferring data, but i dont get any streetpass hits out of it. I'm using busybox method as its the only one that would "work" and have the cooldown time set at 5 mins. Any ideas on how to check the mac is being spoofed, the wifi tether app always failed to change my MAC address so maybe missing something important.
