    It is my understanding that MAC addresses are hard coded into the chip and cannot be changed without swapping chips.

    While the address is burned into a chip it is possible to mask it through an OS so that the packets that are sent out to the internet do not contain the original address.

    you possibly can get a masking tool on Cydia in one of the "non-official" repositories.....
    I don't know if there is any.....
    Most likely written on my iPad

    Cant do it.

    would first have to jailbreak, but even then i dont think there are apps for doing it.
