Realme 7
The bootloader cannot be unlocked in RealmeUI 2.0 on Realme 7 (RMX2151 INDIA) as of now (09-August-2021). The only way to install any ROM/Recovery is to downgrade to the previous version and unlocking the bootloader. The procedure is as follows: (Tested on Realme RMX2151)
  1. Download Android 10 (RealmeUI 1.0 based firmware from here: https://c.realme.com/in/post-details/1415972132185292800)
  2. To be on the Safer Side go to developer options (Tap on build number 5-10 times) and enable USB Debugging.
  3. Shutdown the phone and enter into recovery by holding the power and volume down key for 5-10 seconds) DATA WILL BE WIPED AFTER THIS
  4. Tap on English > Install from Storage > From Phone Storage and select the package.
  5. In around 2-3 minutes Android 10 based stock ROM will be flashed.
  6. Again go to developer options and enable both USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking.
  7. Download in-depth apk and install it on the phone. XDA Forum
  8. Open InDepth APK, Start Applying. Wait for the "review successful".
  9. use the guide in step 7 to boot into fastboot and unlock the bootloader.
  10. Steps to unlock bootloader: Open CMD in the pc to run ADB and fastboot. Type: 1. adb reboot bootloader 2. fastboot devices 3. fastboot flashing unlock 4. fastboot reboot
  11. In case the phone is stuck after fastboot flashing unlock, just restart the recovery by pressing power and volume down together and restart the phone.
  12. Check bootloader status in the developer options.
  13. Reference Video:

  14. You can install any recovery. Just follow the same procedure and change the recovery file.
  15. Press Power and Volume down button together as soon as you type fastboot reboot to open the recovery.
  16. Recovery will get reset if you restart the phone. In this case, use Step 13 to reinstall the recovery.
  17. Once in recovery, you can connect to the PC to copy any ROM and install it. It is recommended to use an SD Card.

I am creating this post because none of the available posts in XDA is telling about bootloader unlock in RealmeUI 2.0. I have unlocked the bootloader and flashed a customer ROM on my Realme 7 using this same procedure.

Let me know in case of any doubts.
