    First, it is not illegal to spoof a MAC address and there are a lot of times in which you would want to, such as testing and development, cloning the mac address of other devices due to LAN restrictions, yada yada.

    Second, I can't find out how to do it on the DX.

    I've tried, in the terminal:

    Code:
    ip link set tiwlan0 address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    ip link set tiwlan0 broadcast XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    (tiwlan0 is the wifi network interface)

    I've also tried:

    Code:
    busybox ifconfig tiwlan0 hw ether XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    Neither work, both tell me "SIOCSIFHWADDR: Operation not supported". This should be viable. It can be done on other Androids, either using these command lines or with edits to files like nvram.txt (which doesn't seem to be present on the Droid X).

    Any tips or suggestions would be ... most welcome.

    Thanks,

    I use mac address spoofing for privacy and for war-driving:D

    but anyways the interface must be down, i never changed it on my phone but I think air plane mode would be considered down.

    Here is an example on CentOS

    # ifconfig eth0 down # ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:80:48:BA:d1:30 # ifconfig eth0 up
