Change MAC address in iOS for iPhone/iPad

In older versions it used to be as easy as:

# ifconfig en0 ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

For iOS versions >5 you have to resort to nvram:

# nvram wifiaddr=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

and then reboot the device.

Prerequisite: jailbroken device, terminal access (local or SSH) and sudo.
