Tongue Tethering being blocked?

Hi everybody, I'm new here and have only had my lg optimus m+ for a lil over a month now. It's my first smart phone and I love it, but I really would like to know if there's a way to work around metropcs blocking the tethering function. From what I understand this would require rooting which I'm only now just learning about but it appears there are no working roms for this model atm. Is there any way to work around this so I can tether??? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks, Obodaour
