You can just follow the steps in this tutorial to get your mac address back. To make it simpler, you don't need to edit the qcn file mannually by hex editor, just use the automatic tool in http://android.modac...3-updated-1711/
. That is to say, you can ignore step 2, 6,7,8 and 9, but to use the automatic patcher instead. Don't worry about that you didn't record your mac address - using a random one is just fine. If you got other problems in the process, read the tips through this thread. If you still cannot find the answer just give a shout.
thanks for the response, I did the manual edit in ES File Explorer, although I could see the new MAC address in the NV file, rebooted the device, the Wifi and Bluetooth MAC address in the status page was still indicating unavailable. I then followed the tutorial and changed the backup qcn file using the hex editor using an address from the macchanger and restored that back to the phone. Again rebooted and although there was a mac address for WiFi and bluetooth in the status page, I am still having no luck with either of them, I still cannot link to my router or use bluetooth to pair to another phone.
I am not at a loss what to do next, (I am running Bluemonte rom which I loaded after the unlocking procedure. Everything to seems to run on the phone apart from WiFi and Bluetooth.
Once again any assistance will be gratefully received. It is very refreshing to find a forum like this where there is so much help
