As seen in the flashfile and servicefile XMLs, only "oem.img" is different across
- XT1802 retin
- XT1805 retid
- XT1805 play .pl
"NON-HLOS.bin" (modem) and "fsg.mbn" (fsg) are the same.
After expanding the oem sparseimage with simg2img and using imgextractor.exe
(because bash on windows doesn't support loop mounting apparently) to extract the filesystem:
their contents differ in preinstalled APKs, resources such as wallpapers, etc.
I suppose someone with an unlocked BL could dump their Oreo oem partition to have a look, but it shouldn't break if you flash an Oreo firmware from another region for g5s+.
