    Are there any out there, and if not, when could we expect to see some?

    I am pondering buying an LG G5. Getting adoptable storage is among the most important things to me, as I've got a lot of stuff on the phone.

    What carrier are you going with? Some carriers **cough-verizon-cough** cannot be rooted yet :(
    However the international (?) and T-mobile versions can.
    Roms I'll have to check a minute...

    Adoptable storage can be had on any G5 variant I believe :)

    I've bought a LG G5 H850 without a carrier. I suppose it's the international version. Got it online and receiving it in a day or two.

    That is good news, that adoptable storage can be had on any G5 variant. I'd really appreciate it if you could say something about how to get that.

    If you are planning on rooting/flashing roms while on MM, do not take an OTA update. Disable it somehow.

    As far as the MM to Nougat while having the adoptable storage enabled, my best guess would be no, no issues.

LG G5

The LG G5 was launched April 1st, 2016. This was some of LG’s biggest innovation yet with the introduction of dual rear cameras, always-on display, and an interesting modular design concept. The modular design never caught on.
