How To Guide [GUIDE][REALME 8][Unofficial] New method Unlock Bootloader, Flash TWRP and Root [RMX3085]

Search This thread
I say on 4pda forum this phone can be unlocked officially using their deeptest apk if the firmware is A19. Can someone provide RMX3085 ofp file of IN and RU region which is A19?
I successfully done it with RMX3085 A24 Global but I still recommend to do backup of your partitions if u try it cause I bricked my phone few times before I completely don it how it needs to be.

I would like to know if anyone got fastboot working, mtkclient method is fine but deeptest should be better. I have dumped my phone (on A.22) and have that backup still.

Hi, I've already given up on this root. I guess I had it installed wrong, or I don't know. But it kept throwing me into the realme startup log. I formatted over and over and over again. I deleted with the command "python mtk e metadata,userdata,md_udc" and I'm working without root. now I don't know why in Google Play I can't see the Netflix app and I can't add my card to Google Pay. It behaves exactly as if i have root but have not installed the modules. does anyone know what to do please?

Your bootloader must be unlocked and cause of this your device certification has been revoked...you must re lock your bootloader to use these apps

I do have a problem with the brom.bat file.
When I run it and then connect the device while holding the + - buttons it just either keeps searching or stops and does nothing.
And when I connect it with all the buttons it gives me this error message.
I tried turning USB debugging on/off.
Installing the drivers for undetected devices you mentioned above, nothing works.

Thank you very much for the instruction, I successfully rooted my phone, but it is in read-only mode. I can edit or delete system files but after reboot everything is the same as before

    Hello guys!
    As you all know that there is no deeptest.apk available for our device.
    So we have to unlock our bootloader unofficially!

    NOTE: IF U HAVEN'T UPGRADED AFTER A19 ROM THEN SKIP FIRST PART !!! And follow the instructions from 2nd part.

    Also this method only works on RUI 2.0
    DON'T TRY THIS IN RUI 3.0

    /*
    * This Guide is tested and working.
    * However I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
    * Please do some research if you have any concerns about unlocking and flashing TWRP
    * Before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications.
    */

    So Lets Begin the Process:

    1. Flashing A19 Partitions:

    Requirements:
    • PC or Laptop
    • Internet connection
    • Realme 8
    • USB cable
    • Take a backup of your data, Just in case if any error happens.
    Windows Method
    Requirements:
    Bypass Tools Pack - (DRIVER AND BYPASS FILES)
    SP Flash Tool

    Decrypted OFP (OPPO FIRMWARE PACKAGE) Partitions:
    Partitions.zip

    Install Python from Windows Store
    libusb-win32 - Having Issues? Use this.
    Get usbdk installer (.msi) from here and install it

    Steps:

    1) Extract the zip
    2) Go to driver folder, find the .inf file right click and press install.

    3)Download this file and install it, after installing power off phone and connect to pc while holding Vol+- (don't leave the buttons after connecting) . You might need this driver as well if it's not detected.

    Press next, connect your device to PC while holding Vol+- buttons (your device needs to be powered off, and don't leave the buttons) and you will see the mtkdriver down below. Install it.

    Choose MediaTek USB Port and install it.

    5) Now power off the phone and connect the phone while holding volume + and - (Don't leave the buttons until the bypass is done)

    6)After the above step Go into Flash Tool folder and open the SPFlash tool and launch flash_tool.exe

    8)Now in Sp flash tool select the scatter file which you have extracted from Partitions.zip and make sure that prealoder, lk, and lk2 is selected.
    Screenshot (49).png


    9) You don't need to select auth file as authorization is disabled. Once you do it, it should look like this. ALWAYS MAKE SURE DOWNLOAD ONLY MODE IS SELECTED! DON'T SELECT OTHER MODES!

    Make SURE "Download Only" is selected. Don't select ANYTHING ELSE! You will lose your IMEIs, Serial Numbers, Capability of Hardware Attestation etc. if you choose "Format data + Download" make SURE you selected "Download Only".

    10) Now, you can start downloading with the button and after that a checkmark will appear. You can reboot your phone
    After flashing it should look like this. Download has been complete.

    2. UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER:

    Requirements
    • PC or Laptop
    • Internet connection
    • USB cable
    • Take a backup of your data since it'll be wiped
    • Go to About phone > Version and tap build number 7 times
    • Go to Settings > advanced settings > Developer options and turn on OEM unlocking and USB debugging
    Steps:
    • Install USBDk
    • Download this and extract : https://github.com/bkerler/mtkclient/archive/refs/heads/main.zip
    • Now open command prompt in that folder
    • Screenshot (50).png
    • Now type pip3 install -r requirements.txt and hit enter
    • Now type python mtk e metadata,userdata,md_udc hit enter - This command wipes data
    • Then power off your phone and hold both volume buttons and connect usb cable (DON'T LEAVE THE BUTTONS, KEEP THEM HOLDING THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS) - This boots device into BROM mode
    • Now type python mtk da seccfg unlock This will unlock the bootloader (If you face waiting for device issue then unplug the device and plug in the device again with holding volume buttons, also don't leave the buttons)
    • IMG_20211201_212023_350.jpg
    • After this unplug your phone and turn it on (It'll show your device dm verity corrupted and first boot might take 5-10 mins, don't panic)
    • Now your bootloader is unlocked

    • Due to realme's limitations you still can't access fastboot after unlocking via this method

    3. ROOTING YOUR DEVICE:

    • Now disconnect and reboot phone
    • Now open Magisk app
