I have Tmobile service also, does LTE work on the ATT M8 with tmobile sim?

Does it have all the bands to run without any problems?

Yes, it gets LTE once you setup the APNs correctly!

Are you rooted? Because you need to be to view or modify those files.

Also, in ES File Manager settings, you need to toggle "Root Explorer" to ON. Although, even with it OFF I believe you should still be able to view the files (just can't modify them). So I think your main problem is no root.

Well, I finally fixed my problem with not being able to send or receive MMS.

I have a AT&T M8 that recently switched over to T-Mobile. I decided to root, s-off, and changed over the developer edition ROM. I was even able to get OTA update after it was done.

I am ecstatic and exhausted after the process but seeing that I was able to get ride of that annoy AT&T boot up music was all worth it.

Now my follow up question is this. I now have a rooted phone with S-off. Should I worry more about security in the future? I typically only download from the Play store but I believe that there are a lot of junk out there as well. Should I lock my bootloader since I won't be doing anything like this the future?

All feedbacks are appreciated.

Extremely Curious to know how you solved the problem!
Hi,

I have an unlocked ATT M8 as you do. I'm in canada trying to get the darn mms working on the rogers canada network. No luck. Ive pondered de branding my phone and loading a WWE version on the cell, but I dont entirely know what I'm doing with that. Would you mind providing some direction, even if pointing me to relevant online posts that you used to learn how to do it correctly?

Appreciate any support.

Cole

PS. CONGRATS on getting mms running!

That person stated how they solved it. He flashed the Dev Ed ROM, which I believe natively supports both the AT&T and T-Mobile network. But this won't help you (Rogers).

Did you try the proper Rogers APN and still having MMS issues?

Thanks for the response. I have tried all the rogers apn settings, had a friend with an actual rogers m8 screen shot the settings with no success. Attempted adding mms specific apn settings as recommended by tier 2 rogers support. Again, no luck.

At this point I believe my only options are to try CM or see if there is a ruu toolkit that will work for rogers. To be honest, aside from one click root, im out of my depth.

I'd still keep trying with the APNs. Make sure with the carrier which APN is associated with your account, as there may be several. AT&T for instance has some 3 or 4 different APNs.

Rogers doesn't have any RUUs for this phone, as far as I am aware I don't see how CM will help, unless the ROM specifically supports Rogers and will have the proper Rogers APN pre-configured (or other things like build.prop). You may have better luck trying to find the stock Rogers ROM, or have another member here upload it for you.
