/* Your warranty is now void (or isn't ? who am I to judge ?) */

Finally, we got a shiny DeepTesting.apk that compatible with Realme 6 Pro.
Thanks to @barakcodam for leaking it, and @Rizezky for providing a Google Drive mirror of it.

Disclaimer
  • This tutorial requires adb and fastboot installed on your computer. So, you should prepare it first. How to install them ? google it according to your os (Windows/Linux/BSD/Mac).
  • Unlocking bootloader will wipe your data, backup it first.
  • Due to Android 10 Dynamic Partition, there's no fully-working TWRP available yet. So the only way to root your phone is patching boot.img through Magisk Manager. You can grab boot.img from Flashable Stock ROM .ozip

Unlocking Bootloader
  • download the deeptesting.apk for Realme 6 Pro : https://drive.google.com/file/d/16az...cRUcsPwCM/view
  • open it and apply for in-depth test
  • Go to Developer options, enable OEM unlock and USB debugging
  • open In-depth test again and tap "Query verification status" on the top corner
  • tap "Start the in-depth test", and you'll will reboot to bootloader
  • on your computer, open cmd/terminal, and type :
    Code:
    fastboot flashing unlock
  • on your phone, select "yes". now your phone will reboot and data is being wiped, and you have unlocked bootloader.

Disabling Verified Boot

In order to boot a custom boot-partition (for magisk or custom kernel purposes) or custom recovery, you have to disable verified boot, otherwise you can't boot to the OS.
  • download vbmeta.img in the attachment
  • on your computer, open cmd/terminal, and type :
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
  • after entering fastboot, type :
    Code:
    fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
  • Now you can flash your custom boot.img and it'll boot just fine.

Reversible ? I don't know, can't confirm that.
Also there's still no patched widevine module that works for realme6pro.

Stock boot image is around 65 mb in size. But patched_boot.img with magisk is only 13.2 mb in size. So will it cause any damage when flashing patched boot image?

No, that 65mb is size of the whole partition block, not the actual size of the whole files inside of it.
If you try to manually unpack the boot.img, and then repack it, the size will go down to around that.
