If you had an EFS partition backup, you could possibly.
But I know TWRP recovery doesn't have that option in the M8.
I don't know if this is a limitation of the device, or the recovery.

That really needs to get added to twrp for this device. Saved my previous phone (e970) several times.

EFS is a Samsung thing.

I have seen CL posting ads in other states that list they can do it, but if you have to send them the phone. One was in atlanta.

They can do it on the m7 as there is a guy on ebay that does it and he uses good imei numbers from the exact same model of phone, but he cant as of yet on the m7.

Anyway I sent you PM

Yes its perfectly legal because its being done to bring your phone back to its original carrier. I have had people that do this sort of thing say it takes a couple hours just to do the old model htc one. So I dont understand how it could possibly be that easy unless there is software or equipment out to do it.
