Homepass manual for rooted Android phones (abusing Streetpass relay)

Ha, got it to work!

For anyone who's not getting the MAC address to spoof correctly, here's what I did.

Use Root Explorer or a similar app.
Access /data/.mac.info and /data/misc/wifi/.nvmac.info, and open them in a text editor.
Change the MAC address here to whatever you want them to be
Delete the backup file
Start tethering

These files will reset to normal once the phone is turned off, so there's zero risk involved. Worked like a charm.

Apparently this isn't always the case... so make sure to jot down your original MAC address if you want to change it back afterwards.

Would you be able to do this on your phone without computer access? I want to be able to SP relay outside.
