Personally, I'd wait for Verizon firmware.
If I was going to use other firmware and I'm not, it would be US Unlocked firmware, which I also have.
But I wouldn't want to flash other radios or modems for sure.
Biggest issue is, there is no returning to Nougat after an update to Oreo on the 10.
At least not that I've managed to figure out yet.
Reverting to Nougat from Oreo causes full loss of baseband and IMEI, until returning to Oreo.
So, I would personally advise staying clear of it for the time being.
Will let you know if anything changes in that regard.
There are claims it works using new firmware and old radio, but I don't know that users device specifics, or if they're even still using Verizon service.
Again, I just advise hanging tight until a little time has passed and more kinks are figured out.
There is no return....
