You may have better luck trying to find the stock Rogers ROM, or have another member here upload it for you.



Thanks! I and a teir 2 set of technical support staff from rogers (working over 10 days) have yet to successfully resolve the issue with APN settings. I also tried making sure that roaming was enabled since technically im not in the normal AT&T coverage zone. Figured that may have stopped data transmission, but it was also unsuccessful.

I think you are right. Might be best I start searching for a Rogers ROM. I did read somewhere that CM seemed to resolve this issue on some other phones. They may have been Tmobile though.

I would still search around for different Rogers APN settings, and try them all. The tech support may still have missed something, even despite their experience. It doesn't hurt to try, in any case. You won't break anything by trying different APNs.

I'd also double check and triple check that you have entered every APN setting field exactly correctly. I was driving myself crazy one time, thinking I had the wrong APN settings; when all it was, I had entered an extra space or missed a character on one of the lines.

It might also help if you posted the APN settings you've tried here, so we can take a look.

So Sorry for the loong delay. Life sometimes gets in the way. UPDATE since last discussion.

I took my ATT M8, BL-unlocked it, installed TRWP custom recovery and installed a ATT CM 12 lollipop (stable) build. Two findings,

1. CM 12 automatically loaded 4 of the most common APN settings to the APN settings location. I selected the ltemobile.apn one and instantly everything worked. MMS included!

2. the CM ltemobile.apn settings listed automatically are different from the Rogers APN settings that come on a new purchased from rogers M8, but it still works.

3. I deleted all the APNS in CM12 and created a new one using the same rogers specific APN settings that I had been trying before I rooted. Those settings now worked perfectly as well. MMS included.

Only issue is that CM 12 has issues with the infrared remote not functioning, which I use, so I'm returning to my MMS non functioning stock and continuing to search for a better solution. Will keep everyone posted.

Also Here are the actual Rogers HTC M8 APN settings print screen'ed from a friends M8. Again purchased at a rogers store. These settings did not work on the unrooted ATT M8. However these APN settings DID work after rooting and loading CM12.

Hope this helps someone out there!
