Can someone help me..I'm stuck after the following command..

./fastboot - disabled-verity - vbmeta flash-verification-enabled vbmeta.img

Command prompt says unknown command -

PS: I modified like this.. ./fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img everything went smooth, but rootchecker says no root access. What might be the problem?

PS: I run magisk app, now it's been rooted.
Edit: Magisk installation is lost after sometime. No root access anymore. Guide need update. Had to follow other method. Thanks to @4j17h for helping me.

Need help

Hi, everybody. Really need help.
There is a phone Realme X Lite. Write that it is Realme 3 Pro for the Chinese market, as well as firmware.
My version was: RMX1851_11_A.05
Tried to flash RMX1851EX_11_OTA_0150_all_2Zfcensdoezk.ozip, recovery gave an error, *_0140_* wrote that the current version is newer.
In depth test APK on the version out of the box wrote that this version of the phone is not supported, so the bootloader could not unlock.
But in the official website came across an offer to join the testing of Android Q
r1.realme.net/general/20190522/1558492614147.pdf
There are two files, the second for rollback.
I installed P2Q, everything went well, but the SnapDragon camera is used and it is terrible if there is not enough light. In depth test is not even installed, apparently not supported in the new version.
I decided to roll back, chose in Recovery Q2P archive, there were no errors, but after rebooting the phone hangs on the initial screen saver and after 10 minutes throws in the recovery with the error "Data error, select wipe data to recovery system". Wipe doesn't help. The same with other archives for Realme 3 Pro.
Also found RMX1851_11_A.12_190423_abecd1fa.ofp for firmware via MsmDownloadTool, but it requires authorization and support refuses to call login details.
Can who faced a similar problem on this or other phone.
Please help, pay for the time spent =)

No bootloader

Hi, I tried to unlock the bootloader of my Realme 3 Pro on latest version A15, but something went wrong after the Depth Test app.

When I try to boot the bootloader, it only shows me a monkey icon, with letters in chinese (I guess), with something like 6 10 written, then it reboot.
Tried to install stock A14, but nothing changed.

Would be glad if someone know a solution.

    Hello...!!!! Do you know why the phone does not go into fastboot mode when you start the depth test? It restarts in system mode. Thank you.
