    Hey, is it possible to spoof a 3ds mac address to seem like it's something else?
    This is possible on a computer, I have a tool which lets me do it, but what about 3ds?

    I googled it and found this video (Which I believe was made by @Rinnegatamante )


    But I don't know if thats true, or even how to do that if it is possible.

    Thanks for any help guys! :)

    I think he tried it, but found that the spoofed address was overwritten?

    Probably best to let him answer. I'm not really sure (but I did remember seeing that post a long time ago).

    As said by daxtsu, it's just a graphical change, in reality, 3DS will still use its original MAC address.
