Have a New Unlocked Pixel 7 I bought from the Google store that I am setting up for my son. I un-locked the bootloader, and now it's time to flash the latest factory image. This phone will be on used on the Xfinity mobile netwrok which is a Verizon MVNO. On the Google factory image page it has the standard image and also a Verizon, Verizon MVNOs image. Which is the correct image to flash? Does it make a difference?
Thanks

It's my understanding that the Verizon image probably contain Verizon specific add-on apps the other doesn't. If you have connection problems after flashing the non-verizon image, you can flash just the modem/radio image of the Verizon image.

I've always bought Google store unlocked phones and have had no issues flashing either one.

Never thought of just flashing the radio.img. Just used pixelflasher for 1st time to flash, kinda easy and cool. Flashed the stock image.
Thanks
