Hey,
I saw a number of Youtube videos named "Realme 8 | 8 Pro call recording" from India where they show how to enable call recording even with Google Phone (by joining beta and just enabling the feature). I don't see that option on my phone (bought in Poland / UE with ROM compilation RMX3081_11_A.28 ). I also saw suggestions to change the location in settings to India but it didn't work. In some other thread there was and answer that this option could be enabled by editing two files but the phone would need to be rooted.

Are those videos fake or maybe it is possible to load different official ROM and have call recording enabled ?

Would it be possible to load one of these ROMs :


If so, which one ?

Should I do it with the method described by StratOS_HTC here ? :
https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/how-to-prepare-to-do-a-flash-a-start.4356689/

I tried to follow that guide and :

a) in step "go to download mode" : Unplug the USB connection - Press and click the Ver 1.2 at bottom :

I was stuck running QFIL and having no idea where to get "Programmer" and "build" files with black screen on my phone.

b) in the optional step " Or in the Bootloader interference when flashing throught Realme app :"

I downloaded the RMX3081_11_A.42 ROM from : http://www.frpbdteam.online/ and when tried to flash it I ended up with an error "realme flash cannot find central directory"

Currently without extra devices, dongles ... the available process (official flashes) are to be done with system OTA update with VPN in Poland, Germany.
Or partialy manual flash via ozip in recovery.

Of course the official way with MSM (also paid).

Qfil and any firehose loader doesn't work good...

Oppo flash tools are only for the devices with unlocked bootloaders. RMX3081 still have none of the all and extra needed for above.

Thanks for a quick response. I'm not a professional IT specialist, so I'll be glad if you explained it to me like I'm a 6-year-old. My system is RMX3085. I used Cube ACR at my older Huawei Mate 10 Lite and it worked fine. Now I have Realme 8 for 2 weeks, tried 4 different call recorders and none of them works on Realme 8...

Fur sure, they all need root acess ... If you are talking to Realme 8, the root there is possible, but for RMX3081 is still not possible to do that.

Or use of the External app to like Realme Call Recorder to grant access to other apps ...
And acess to messages Haven't tried it, but know it will work even without root.

I tried Realme Call Recorder - the effect is the same - on recordings I hear only myself, I don't hear the interlocutor.

If the root is not possibile on RMX3081 then I suppose it's not possibile on RMX3085 either...

What do you mean by "access to messages"?

that seems interesting - would you elaborate ?

Lets say I run VPN to India on my router - would you say that in that scenario I would have some more options to change from GDPR rom to some other in which I would have call recording enabled ?


Or partialy manual flash via ozip in recovery.
Would you point to some tutorial ? I tried your's and end up no where.

As a workaround I'm currently using ACR ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nll.acr ) with audio boost (15 dB) - you will find it in the app settings under recording. It listens to the speaker and the caller is hardly heard while my voice is too loud but it is enough if your call was in quiet environment.
