    1. Download 3.3 beta 2. (although 3.4 experimental should work).
    2. Change SSID to attwifi
    3. Enable Mac Address Spoof
    4. Change MAC to whatever you need.
    5. Wait for a minute. You should connect automatically shortly, and then a streetpass should follow.

    That app is the most simple method of doing this on a rooted Android device for me so far because it has the spoofing mechanism in the tether application. I am currently looking for another tether application that would allow for spaces in SSID and use of the MAC Address Ghost app, which allows for profiles of MAC Addresses.

    The most data I've used is 100 kbs down and 500 kbs up with a hit. But YMMV, watch the meter.

    I was going to post this as well, got it from another guy on nvn.
    If you want multiple mac profiles, use ti backup.

    It's only displaying one Mac Address in the Clone Mac Address Setup Tab for my router. Shouldn't there be two?

    Also, not only did I get neocrux's mii, I got jimbo's Theatrhythym Final Fantasy data. This means this data is only overwritten if you happen to have streetpass setup for the specific game.

    Now what would be ideal, is to find out exactly what server the 3DS connects to for streetpass relay, so that I can do an explicit white-listing policy, so that Other 3DSs in the local area can hit the spot, without other non-3DS devices using the AP for free internet access.

    Now THAT would be cool :) Report back if you find anything out in this regard.

    EDIT: A good firewall with proper traffic logging could probably find this out... but it also could be a whole series of different servers/IPs, so it might take some trial & error.

    Well it is complicated, but you just have to go to a nintendo zone, they hid their internet connection, but i got a program that unlocks it, so now i have their settings, so just copied them to my house

    This is great work. I've been able to do this using my Synology DS 212+ using the built-in Wireless Hotspot feature, but whenever I enable it, dnsmasq stops working. If I enable dnsmasq again, the Wireless Hotspot breaks. Going to try hostapd when I have the chance. If I can get that working flawlessly I may write a script to download the MAC list and automate cycling every hour or so.

    What an absolutely fantastic contribution to the thread. Here, others are senselessly throwing ideas and solutions back and forth to help each other, but you're much smarter than that because you keep yours to yourself. I applaud you for recognising that knowledge is power and admire your aspirations for proverbial tyranny.

    Can you elaborate? I'm interested.

    I was curious about potentially spoofing the MAC of an actual Nintendo Zone Relay. Then you would get the StreetPasses from people actually hitting that Relay in the physical location.

    Wait... you mean you got a WLAN MAC Address off a Nintendo Zone? That's pretty unnecessary (cause we made our own :) ) and still wouldn't give us the ability as we have now to do it at a distance.

    Sorry, but this is a personal thing that i have found for myself, because once everyone starts using it, streetpass relay will be pointless, so thank you for being curious but sorry, i don't want this new update to go to waste for everyone. Spoofing the ip is a good idea, for geniuses, who know computers, because 90% of nintendo players don't know what it means.

    See I was kinda hitting at that in that Reddit thread to you when I said I didn't think it worked, but it seems kinda pointless to do like a Nintendo Zone near me. I mean I got a tag from one of my DSes to the other a day later. You'd only be getting the same people we're getting with our MACS. Now if we knew the mac of say like the Nintendo Zone at the Nintendo Store in New York that'd be interesting, though so many people would hit it we'd probably not get many actual people there like Reggie.

    Then why post about it? If it's such a secret, and personal keep it yourself and don't flaunt it or even post. That's just being arrogant. We're trying to help others out here on the thread to find a nice way to get StreetPasses where they couldn't - sharing our knowledge, not hoarding it.


    Yeah good point. There really is no point in hitting it since we have a large enough group of people hitting our current MACs. No need to cause more of a stir when we've created enough I would imagine.

    How will it go to waist? The zone will work as intended! You still will not be able to get more them 2 streetpass a day! And people like you will be able to get more people on the street pass inplace of the same hits :D
