Just to illustrate my point that we won't be able to download this manually, here is the Chinese support page for all devices.
The X2 Pro is on version F12 in China and you will see that it is not available to download. Same for the X50 Pro and X3 Super Zoom which are also running UI2.0.
We will only get UI2.0 when it is pushed, we will not be able to install it manually. The only way to install it manually will be if you can find a .zip file of it and then you will need to unlock your bootloader and install a custom recovery. At this moment there isn't a way to relock your bootloader safely and you will therefore fail Safety Net meaning you won't be able to use Google Pay or your banking apps.
Here in the UK there is a £45 limit on contactless transactions using your bank card, with Google Pay there is no limit. With the Covid-19 pandemic going on I am not willing to lose Google Pay.
Realme are too busy releasing new devices and it is clear that they don't have enough developers to keep up. Also note, the F11 contains June's security patches so European devices will be vulnerable until Realme decide to push the update to us.
It is not just X2 Pro owners in Europe who are being messed about, they also missed the June deadline for X7 and X7 Pro.

There's only one problem here, safety net DOESN'T break just because you unlocked the bootloader. I had unlocked bootloader without root since the first day I got the phone, and safety net was fine. Later in RUI 1.0 even with root (Magisk) there were no issues with safety net.

I've read that unlocking the bootloader fails hardware attestation now and trips Safety Net as part of Google's new security process.
Are you saying that the Realme doesn't do this and you are still able to install and use Google Pay and banking apps after unlocking the bootloader?

Yes I am. I did read about some people having issues, but for me works fine in RUI 1.0.

C.38 via Realme update site.
It contains the June security patches, it is not the Android 11 update.
Call me cynical, but that would indicate to me that we won't be getting UI2.0 anytime soon because F11 contains the June security patches. Giving us this is just an attempt to make sure there is no problem with vulnerabilities.
The 2 to 3 months wait that I was told in the Telegram group is looking like it is the truth.

    A short story, how i get RUI 2.0

    after i bricked my phone with a wrong fastboot command ( erase system+vendor... )

    i reinstall the phone entierely with a full stock rom c27(~5GB for full rom and ~3Gb for OTA) then ota to c38 ( india i think) .
    immediatly i receive the ota message for RUI 2.0 update( but not do it ).
    not remember exactly where i found the full stock rom maybe here :)

    Then install twrp + root but magisk hide not work with my bank app so i decide to revert root. and download the RUI2.0. I tried flash it with TWRP ( file location for ota ==> /data/oppo/coloros/OTA/.otaPackage/ ) but i get a error message " this updat is for L1 widevine or some bullsh*t like that O_O) " WTFFFF

    So i finally relaucn the c38 ota to revert stock recovery and do un online update in the stock recovery, i'm nom on RUI2.0 and not have hard issue

    Debloat some bullsh**t with this post ==> \o/

    Sorry for my bad english i try my best T-T

    I've had the original OnePlus phone, two BQ phones and two Xiaomi phones before deciding to move on to this phone.

    And while the support from most of the other mentions for Europe wasn't supreme, what Realme pulls off here is beyond comparison. Security patches take a ridiculous amount of time to be distributed (I think the latest version is still from February?) and the whole on-and-off strategy of Realme UI 2 for the X2 Pro with the absolute abscence of communication is just absolute laughable - if it wasn't so sad. All I have to find out more about the current status of this and when to expect an update in Europe are "tech news" websites which update the same article every 2 days to stay relevant for SEO.

    I have to say I'm incredibly disappointed and will certainly not buy another one of their products. I know it won't matter, but I don't feel this behaviour is justifiable in any way.

    I found this on Punikaweb

    Update 104 (May 20)​





    IST 05:22 pm: The Spanish branch of Realme is rolling out Realme UI 2.0 (Android 11) update for Realme 7, 7 5G, 7 Pro, X2 Pro, and X3 SuperZoom. The commencement will be completed by July end.

    Good news I think as you should be able to download the update from the Spanish site.

    Seems like the stable update is reaching France now so it should be available for non-beta users in Europe shortly according to this link.

    Realme continues to release betas for lots of other models in India and I still can't even get a road map for any European releases.
    I'll keep asking them until I get more than a stock email reply.

    Further confirmation that the update is coming to Europe in June.
