    A MAC address is hardware specific. If it was "erased" after you did a master reset, then you probably have a software or hardware problem. Maybe your wifi chip went out on your phone?

    There is no legal way to rewrite (or restore) a MAC address. I would suggest you take the phone to a good repair shop or replace it.

    So even re-flashing the BIN file would not help?
