Default [No Root] Remove T-Mobile hotspot upsell?

Anyone know how to? I don't really want to root, I just want to be able to take advantage of my unlimited data.

On the Note 3, the process was to just create another APN with fast.t-mobile.com and ipv4.

Not sure if its the same process with the M8 though.

I also used PDANet on the Note 3 for unlimited tether to my computer and other devices such as Xbox One and PS4 etc...

I will be looking into this more soon as mine gets delivered today.

Last time I took advantage of my unlimited data with tethering hack, I was doing about 90/130GB a month on TMobile.

I tried to do it earlier, but it wouldnt let me connect using the new APN. It would just revert to the default one. Anyone else try it?

This is the solution I came up with: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2715450

The problem is that you won't be able to modify /system/customize/ACC/default.xml to change the APN that the built in tethering app uses without root.

This might be a silly question, but is there an unrooted M8 somewhere that would allow me to get around the tethering surcharge? Maybe the developer edition, GPE, or an unlocked device from another carrier?

Thanks!
