Unfortunately no reply from realme for the kernel code. I dont have my hands on the device yet but dont think it will take a long time for a custom ROM
That's for sure they release source codes almost 8 months or longer after the device is out. I think I'll have to pass on this device. It's unfortunate because it would have been nice.

What's probably more important is that theres a safe way for us to unlock the bootloader, we can get custom twrp and rom on this without issues, I can develop this but don't plan to maintain this, so hoping there are some maintainers in this device forum. Custom kernel wont bring a large change compared to custom ROM.

Thats mean we will have roms and kernels ?
As far as i have learnt, for custom ROMs, we would need an ability to unlock the bootloader along with kernel sources. And it is possible to unlock the bootloader for Chinese veriant only. Not sure about Global, but Indian veriant can't be unlocked. So as pf now, custom ROM scenario looks a bit bleak
