Now that we have s-off, can we use the roms now or do we have to wait for the verizon ports. I am not sure if our kernel is different then the other carriers.

you must wait for a Verizon version of any custom rom. other carrier/ international roms will not work.

Please do NOT flash ANY ROM not specifically in this Verizon thread unless the ROM states that it is working on Verizon..

Even though they are the same phone, the partitions are different.
What this means is you could end up with some serious problems.
For example, you could be flashing the boot.img to the system partition.. not good

Good point. Would you think the work involved in porting other devices ROMs over to the VZW version would be minimal at least?

I wouldn't imagine it's too difficult but why risk it when we'll probably have something legit to flash by mid week?
