Now I'm not talking trash or causing drama but I see a lot of of ROMS being cooked up in the m8 forums. Will these be ported over?!
I'm just excited to flash flash flash!

Even though yes they are the same phone.
Porting ROMs can be difficult as some are GSM based and we are CDMA, so sure could port it easily but getting RIL (data/calls) to work is a diff story.
although if you look some ROMs state they are for ALL variants such as this one

Insert Coin ROM is Verizon as well I believe

I wouldn't try android revolution on Verizon. It says in the op "not currently supported for sprint and Verizon". Not sure if he's referring to the fact that it doesn't work, or he is saying that it works but he won't currently fix those variants.

Just wait for CM. They typically standardize a lot of things on the hardware end and make porting and ROMing in general much easier

There will be plenty of Roms for this phone. Just be patient, it is an art after all.

Yeah, the part that doesn't work (5.0) on Verizon M8's is the radio -- no CDMA/3G/4G support on Verizon phones. (Three guesses how I found that out ...)
